Antique Unique Cow Horn New Mexico Frontier Patch Knife 1860 Rare:
Boy, this is one unique frontier knife!! The 4” gorged heavy blade , I’m sure came off another knife when the handle broke. Someone went to great effort to attach it to a small cow horn.Likely used as a patch knife. Never seen a cow horn used as a knife handle.A bent nail retains it, very tight. Estimated to date to about 1850-60. Overall 8 ½”. It was collected in northern New Mexico.Very cool! I sell my listings WITHOUT A RESERVE , and NO returns. Study the pictures before offerding, and ask question if you are unclear about anything. We described things as best we can but we are not experts in every field. You may know more about the item then we do. You are the judge as to quality and value. I try to list several new item every other day, so keep check my listings including early western and Mexican pieces…
