    Rare Civil War Era Navy Sailor's Working Pocket Knife  - Inventory Number: EDG 042

    Blade is signed "Henry Hobson and Son" and is marked "22nd Middlesex" on the blade.  Circa 1861-1965.  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.  Measures8 1/4" overall.
