    Another Unusual Confederate-made Fighting Knife, this Specimen Produced Using the Iconic Hilt of a Confederate Foot Artillery Sword, 18" overall. The one-piece cast brass hilt displays stars on either side of the pommel and CS on both faces of the guard. Typical crude casting and finish normally observed on this hilt in the foot artillery form. This hilt shows no signs of having been previously mounted and was apparently made as a knife rather than the more commonly encountered foot configuration. The 12½" spear point blade is diamond shaped in cross section with a flat ricasso. The blade bears a die stamped pentagram at the ricasso, unquestionably period but significance unknown. The knife overall exhibits great untouched patina. A very impressive and exceedingly rare Confederate-made knife.
