We sure don't make handguns like we used to!
Called the "Apache Revolver" or "Apache Knuckleduster", around 7,000 of these were made in Belgium by Lambert Dolne in the 1870's and they are considered to be one of the most unique pocket pistols ever made. This handgun gets its name from a notorious French street gang called the "Apaches" who were known to have used these in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
This particular pistol is double action and fires six 7mm pinfire cartridges which went out of style in the late 1800's. Other calibers were also made including some that could shoot rimfire cartridges. 
The locking blade is double edged and wavy.
