A large broad very rare Navaja by Alvaro Garcia of Albacete.
A large and rare exhibition Navaja from Albacete, made by Alvaro Garcia. Very early 20th centruy.
This gorgeous Navaja meansures just under 43cms open and 24cms closed with nice horn grip slabs, bolsters and backspring.
The blade has a large 11 tooth ratchet and is just under 19cms from the edge of the bolster, is razor sharp, has a raised medial ridge and a deep clipped point. This Navaja is both a wonderful exhibition piece and an outstanding fighting knife of good proportions with the balde being 5cms wide to the middle.
One side of the blade has a full floral cartouche to the majority of the blade, the other side shows another large cartouche with floral designs and a scrolled banner encasing the folloing script.

"Cuando acaricia mi mano"
"la cacha de esta navaja"

"al ver mis bravas houzanas"

A very nice substantial Navaja of beautiful proportions.
