    I doubt it is 762mm in length... Which is probably it's group size at 20 paces...

    Actually 20 paces is quite a long distance in a knife fight...

    Be ideal for repelling boarders - loaded with rusty nails , stones and old rivets it would take no prisoners. Exactly what it was designed to do

    If genuine it requires no firearms licence as it is an antique. $800 could be a very good price in that case.
