This attractive example measures a full 8 ¼ inches in length when open not counting the original copper lanyard ring and offers fist filling slabbed stag grips. ( Illustrated here with a U.S. quarter for size comparison. ) With good evidence of age and period use and the classic iron binding of the Civil War period, the well honed blade has survived the honing of lots of use such as the makers identification has been worn away with only the remains of the familiar SHEFFIELD remaining.
