earlier 1800s through Civil War era PLANTATION KNIFE

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Acquired some years ago while traveling in Louisiana, this wonderful early hand wrought field knife with its massive 16 inch slightly curved, black iron blade and turned hardwood grip, will fit well in a myriad of collecting categories. With its long stout blade and naturally patinated grip from untold hours of long ago use, the piece is a classic of the early Southern field or cane knife style used by slave workers in cotton and sugar cane labor. Measuring just under 22 inches in total length with a blade that is a sturdy 1/4 inch thick at its back, this early utility would surely have been a prize to the field hand who would undoubtedly have been subject to close scrutiny while in possession of such a formidable item. Classic early construction is set off in this case by the presence of a well patinaed iron ferrule at the hilt with forged iron washer and peened tang at the butt. All reminiscent of so many hand forged D-guard and heavy bowie knives of Confederate popularity. An eye appealing piece of Southern Americana with Black History ties, the piece offers that telltale wavy blade construction knowledgeable collectors like and would not be out of place in a Confederate or primitive knife grouping. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
