    Rare Civil War Era Navy Issue Sailor's Working Pocket Knife - Blade is signed "Chalance Cutlery Co. / Sheffield" and is boldly marked "U.S. NAVY".  Circa 1861-65.  This classic seaman's knife allowed the deck hand to cut and splice line, whittle and perform a variety of other shipboard tasks, but did not afford him the opportunity to use it as a weapon against his shipmates in the confined and often rowdy quarters of the ship.
