Not to be confused with the later J. COPLEY & SONS SHEFFIELD examples, this rare earlier through Civil War I. C. W. J. COPLEY marked knife offers all the classic characteristics knowledgeable Civil War collectors look for. In addition this offering sports the blade marking A REAL VIRGINIAN identifying the piece as having been manufactured for the American market. More specifically and in consideration of the lively British trade with the Confederacy, it is a safe bet that this period identifiable pocket knife was destined for the Confederate Virginia market.
Measuring 5 1/8 inches closed and a full 8 7/8 inches open, this stout working pocket knife is iron bound with pinned stag grip on one side with a hand whittled and period used live oak replacement on the other. All reflecting originality, period construction and considerable use and carrying, this A REAL VIRGINIAN marked J. COPLEY remains in pleasing condition and will make a welcome addition to someone’s Confederate Virginia collection. 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!

NOTE: John Copley was born in High Hoyland, near Barnsley, England about 1804 and died in 1864 with his sons taking over the business. While a period advertisement stated that his firm was established in 1824, John Copley's name as a spring knife maker did not appear in directories until 1845. The 1851 census lists John Copley knife maker employing a dozen men. An 1863 directory carries an advertisement for Copley as a manufacturer of table cutlery, pen and pocket knives, daggers, lock and Bowie knives. (see: Tweedale's Directory of Sheffield Cutlery Manufacturers)
