During the Civil War, it behooved a soldier to carry a close-combat weapon at all times. This Civil War Ames Rifleman Knife has all the features that a soldier would have wanted, with the length and size of a deadly weapon. In fact, it would not be surprising if a blade of this size was, as its name implies, the favored close-combat weapon of a typical rifleman during the Civil War! This impressive knife has a double-edge spear point, as well as width enough to be both a deadly thrusting weapon and a lethal slashing one. The knife blade is crafted from carbon steel and measures approximately 12 inches long, while the wooden handle features a subtle curve at the pommel, as well as a simple but effective brass cross guard. Included with the knife is a leather scabbard with brass fittings. The overall length is 19 inches. Almost big enough to be a short sword, this Civil War Ames Rifleman Knife is an impressive weapon and a handy little blade that is as great a collectable as it is a handy little blade to carry at your side, especially when you are looking to create a great costume for your next reenactment!
