    Confederate Brass Fighting Knife With Langet; Serial No. XXII. An unmarked (CS Armory) Confederate fighting knife with langet that is serial numbered XXII. The blade of this knife is 14½" the overall length is 20". The handle is solid brass with a langet loop. The meaning of the Roman numeral serial no. XXII is unknown; however, the number is done very similar to the style used by the Confederate States Armory, which operated out of Kenansville, NC. It is known that the firm did produce knives in addition to swords, sabers and cutlasses. This rare knife could well be a product of the firm. Please see Lot 74027 in this sale for a similar weapon marked with the number "XXIII".
