    Description

    Large Confederate D-Guard Bowie Knife. Unquestionably Confederate and a form we have encountered before. 20" overall with 15 1/4" blade, 1 7/8" at widest point narrowing at the base to a pen knife like 1 1/8" wide ricasso. Squared off D type guard with flattened disc pommel incorporated with the pean. Arrow shaped quillon. The one piece wood grip, which appears to be hickory was apparently cleaned at some point as some spots along the edges still show the original deep dark patina. All iron with dark untouched patina and light to generally medium pitting scattered overall. As is typically the case with Confederate knives it remains sharp as a razor. Good representative example of this uniquely Confederate weapon.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
