Rare Civil War Era Navy Sailor's Working Pocket Knife - Inventory Number: EDG 049
English issue – Possible CSN Usage
Blade is marked with WD and broad arrow. 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.
