Slotted hilted hanger
Slotted hilted hanger, the hilt of the hanger consists of a narrow steel knuckle-guard, which broadens to the shoulder with two horizontal parallel cuts, one on each side. The dark green leather grip is spirally bound with a narrow strip of copper wire. The design of the blade together with the shape and lightness of weight of the hanger leads to the assumption that it was originally used at sea. This type of hanger disappeared around 1800.
