Civil War Confederate Artillery Sword Made Into A Fighting Knife
A unique Confederate short artillery sword made into a fighting knife. Standard CS Style brass guard with brass grip & pommel. No rivets in the grip & no markings on the brass guard. Casting flaws in the guard which looks like the Leech & Rigdon style guard. The overall knife is 17 1/4" L with a 11 1/2" Double edged hammered blade which show a lot of use & has a brownish patina. The peening of the blade on the guard has been there probably since the Civil War. This is a very unique fighting knife probably used by some Rebel soldier during the Civil War.
