Italian Stiletto dagger, mid to late 17 C. Known as Gunners Stiletto and used to measure the amount of gun powder to be loaded on a cannon by sticking it at the top of the gunpowder pile and measuring its depth. The 10 inches blade is scaled with numbers. The grip is wood with spiral ribs set with round bone insert, steel cross guard and steel pommel. Total length 15 inches.

Nope! Tautological, not circumlocutionary.
