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.
