Civil War Period Bone Gripped Pocket Knife
Civil War Period Bone Gripped Pocket Knife – This pocket knife is a fine example of a war period pocket knife. The grips are both bone and appear in a pleasing aged patina; both are in excellent condition. There are two blades, one long and one short; both exhibit use and wear, but are completely in tact. The longer blade is marked, at the proximal end, “G. HALL & SON” – British cutlery makers of the mid-19th century. This is a classic example of the type of pocket knife carried by many Civil War soldiers.
