CLASSIC LARGE CONFEDERATE SIDE KNIFE MADE FROM LARGE FILE.

18-1/2″ overall, 13-1/2″ blade, 1-3/4″ wide, .25″ thick which seems to be the typical thickness of so many imported files seen on Confederate knives. This double-edged knife has a well defined medial ridge; saber ground by a good craftsman. Knife handle and ferrule appear to be from the same tool handle, probably, that originated on file. Only the blacksmith made 3-1/2″ “C” shaped cross guard was added. This is a great example of Southern ingenuity making a fine fighting weapon from a tool. PROVENANCE: Ex-Jack Bruner, Memphis, TN; Wayne McNeese Collection. CONDITION: Overall good with blade and cross guard overall grey, still showing finishing marks but eroded and pitted, especially along cutting edge. Reverse side of wood grip is eroded from insect damage but obverse displays quite nicely as seen in photos. 50427-5 JS (4,000-6,000) – Lot 2211
