American dirk, the hilt of the dirk consists of a short brass cross-guard with inversed ends and disc-shaped terminals. The leading terminal is pierced for a chain guard. The pommel is made in the form of a cast and chased eagle's head. There is a hole in the eagle's beak to accommodate the end of a chain guard. The ivory grip is lightly decorated with threads. The ferrule is similarly decorated. The steel blade is straight and double-edged. The point is rounded and therefore, presumably, damaged. The black leather scabbard has a brass top locket fitted with a ring.
