    Description

    Unmarked Boyle & Gamble Confederate Bowie Knife. This classic Southern clip point side knife is 14" long overall and boasts a 9" blade. It surfaced in the Shenandoah Valley and is likely the product of Boyle & Gamble, Confederate Virginia's foremost manufacturer of edged weapons. The bowie's beveled brass crossguard, its two-piece wooden grip secured by three brass rivets and its ridgeless blade all suggest a Boyle & Gamble origin. The crossguard displays some wonderful file marks as typically found on rebel brass. The knife comes with its original leather scabbard. The central stich along the length is somewhat loose and there is crazing per usual. Overall this item is in very good condition and is quite presentable.
