First merchandised in the Civil War period as one of a number of combination mess utensils designed for easy carrying and sales appeal to a growing camp sutler and individual sales market, this popular design has been well documented Civil War camp site diggers who's study and excavation efforts have served the collector community so well. Recently acquired from an old collection put together when such quality could be found this exceptionally nice 19th century example is maker marked F. ASMAN & Co. SHEFFIELD and remains in crisp, as new and unused condition yet with good evidence of age originality. With no evidence of sharpening or use, this piece will appeal to the discriminating antique knife collector as well as the Civil War buff looking for an especially nice example of the type.
