Originating from the estate of G. F. McConnell, this knife was fashioned from a Model 1840 non-commissioned officer’s sword. The brass ribbed grip and cross-guard have been filed to a small diamond shaped mount. The blade has a well-formed clipped point bowie tip and a length of 13 ¼”. Overall length is 19 ¼”. The original sword markings are discernable: “U.S.”, inspectors initials and the date of 1863. Neat relic!
