Original Antique Civil War Period Antler Handled Bowie knife With Leather Sheath. The blade is very fine and very sharp steel about 6″. This knife is Civil War period but was also produced after the Civil War so it is impossible to date exactly. There is a text mark on the blade Sheffield England. The stag antler handle is very nice and it has a silver cross guard. The blade has some old pitting. The sheath is antique and very old but does not seem to be original to the knife. A very nice Civil War period knife. A favorite of both Confederate and Union soldiers during the Civil War. Many Civil War soldiers carried private purchase “back up” weapons as illustrated in the photos above. 100% guaranteed to be authentic, and unaltered. A great authentic side knife.
