Outstanding example of a large Civil War side knife. Measuring 13 ¼” long, constructed with a stag antler grips and silver cross guard. The blade retains its original polish. The ricasso is deeply marked: “J. Rodgers and Sons. No. 6 Norfolk St. Sheffield”. The original leather sheath had silver mounts and a leather body with a tooled horizonal rope embossing on both sides. Belt loops is present and firmly affixed. Just as wonderful an example as can be encountered.
