Authentic frontiersman knife in remarkable original condition.
Dimensions: Slightly over 15.25” long; the blade is slightly over 10 inches long, 1.5” wide. The bone handle is slightly over 5” long.
Origin: Florida Estate
Date: 1860 to 1890
Condition: The knife is in excellent condition. The brass was at one time polished and shows evidence or it. The handle is mellow tight and no movement whatsoever. How could a utilitarian knife made over a 125-150 years ago have been made to withstand such obvious hard use? Blade oxidized. Please see photos as they are an integral part of the condition report and ask any questions that you have about the item so that we can satisfy you. It is important as this is the only knife of this type and standard I have handled.
