MASSIVE Antique Foster Bros Buffalo Skinner/Butcher's Lamb Splitter Knife 1800s
MASSIVE Antique Foster Bros Buffalo Skinner/Butcher's Lamb Splitter Knife in very nice condition for its age. No cracks, deterioration, or major dents in the wood handle and it is nice and tight, hand peened rivets are in good condition, nice straight, very thick blade, no bend or chips on the tip, blade has some very small nicks in the blade from use but nothing difficult to remove with a fresh sharpening even though the blade is already sharp. This bad boy is ready for work or display and pictures don't really convey what a monster this knife is. Its blade is stamped FOSTER BROS. TRADE and Mark 12 along with the company's arrow logo.

It's a style and size, though, that was widely carried by buffalo hunters in the years immediately following the Civil War Comes with 12" blade (17-1/4" overall length) that is 9/32 thick, tapering towards point and pommel Handle The entire piece is beautifully lightly weathered and never abused and it just begs to be held. Though it has some considerable collector value, it would be a shame not to use it, if you're able. Carbon steel blades of this vintage can hold a razor's edge like no other and I have little doubt it could still do more than its share of butchering of game or livestock If you're simply collecting Fur Trade items, you're in luck--this is a rare opportunity to add some authenticity and quality to your collection.
