Original Antique Civil War Period Mid-19th Century Antler Handled Dagger Certified. Very nice Civil War side type dagger. The blade is very fine sharp steel about 7″. The handle is antler about 4″ the hand guard is a bit loose (see photos) but still displays very well. 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. 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 dandy authentic side knife.
