    Outstanding Confederate Bowie Knife - Inventory Number: CON 124 / Sold

    A superb example of a large "D' Guard Bowie from my personal collection.  Measuring 18" overall.  This example exhibits an impressive horn handle with original owner's initials: "J.H. Co. H" and some other light carvings.

    Blade measures 11 7/8" in with a clipped point and exhibits all the classic finishing expected of a true Southern knife.  Original pigskin sheath with period paper label with ink inscription which had not been deciphered.  The seam is adorned with a series of lead rivets and a pair of slits for affixing to the belt.  If you've ever wanted a pedigreed example of a Confederate soldiers' "D" guard, this is a stunning example of such a knife.  Ex. R. E. Neville Collection, Ex. Brendan Synnamon collection.
