Fine Confederate D-Guard Bowie Knife
Fine Confederate D-Guard Bowie Knife – This excellent, archetypal example of a large, Confederate Bowie knife, is in excellent condition. The long, single edged blade, with a clipped point, is constructed of heavy iron. The cast iron guard and knuckle bow are impressively large and heavy. The wood hilt, seemingly of walnut, is in great shape, with a minor age crack. The blade was peened to the knuckle bow and hilt. This is a classic, Confederate D-guard, in great, non-dug condition.
Knife measures as follows: Overall length – 19.2”; Blade length – 14.2”; Hilt – 4.5”.
