Early Knife Pistol

Two years ago, I posted about the Apache, an unusual weapon consisting of a folding knife, handgun, and knuckleduster made in the second half of the Nineteenth Century. This weapon appears to be an earlier -- or at least more primitive -- version of that concept. It's a knife with a single-shot percussion pistol. There's a crown marked into the steel, but otherwise, its origin is a mystery.

You like killing people?
No, I don't like killing people, I just like guns.
But guns are designed to kill people, it's their only function.
