This 1849 Riflemans Knife features many design nuances of the first knife officially designed for, and purchased by, the U.S. Army in 1849. The knife features a big, stout spear point blade that is hand forged from high carbon steel. With such a big and strong blade, it is easy to see why it was chose as a backup blade for Civil War riflemen. A solid brass guard and gorgeous rosewood handle scales encapsulate the sturdy full tang. This knife is sold with a high-quality hand stitched leather sheath with brass polished fittings. You will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful knife that is perfect for re-enactors and collectors alike.
