U.s. Civil War Sword Fighting Knife Dagger 1864 For Sale

U.s. Civil War Sword Fighting Knife Dagger 1864

Up for offer is an 1864 U.S. Civil War Emerson & Silver sword, cutdown and modified into a 16" fighting knife. The knife is maker marked Emerson & Silver Trenton, N.J. on one side of the ricasso and on the other side it is marked D.F.M., with the date of 1864. It also has the number "82" double-stamped on the bottom of the guard.The knife measures 16" in overall length, with a blade length of 10". The guard has been modified, with the crossguard having been reshaped and the original d-guard removed. However, the original pommel and most of the original hilt remains. The blade has a very wide blood groove on both sides, which runs the length of the ten inches. There is some age spotting on the blade and some minimal pitting and scratches. There is also a very minuscule nick on the blade about two inches from the ricasso. The handle is leather-covered wood, which is wrapped in gold wire. There is a chip in the wood on the bottom of the handle, where the d-guard had been removed from the handle. The chip looks period and appears part of the modification process. There are also some stable cracks in the leather. I've taken pictures of all aspects of the knife. Everything is tight on the knife, with no movement in the brass pommel or brass guard, but there are a couple small dings in the pommel. There is no scabbard with the knife, and I originally acquired it without a scabbard.A really nice Civil War side knife that could have been used by either side. It's known that Confederate troops would make side knives from virtually any available source and Union soldiers often used damaged cavalry swords to manufacture fighting knives. These knives are becoming very difficult to find today and they don't often become available on .Thanks for offerding. If additional pictures are needed, I'll be happy to send whatever is requested. Also - feel free to ask me any questions.
