A style most frequently referred to by Civil War collectors as a Cavalryman knife, this neat period jack-knife is maker marked G. Butler & Co – Sheffield and offers two knife blades, a leather awl for harness adjustment, corkscrew, screwdriver and the all-important folding hoof hook for horse hoof and shoe stone removal. While this example remains in desirable as found and condition, with good evidence of period use it remains in pleasing shape, fully functional with no cracks in the hard rubber grips and tight at the joints. An especially nice personal item these folding pocket or saddlebag tools were subject to hard use in the period seldom surviving in any kind of reasonable condition.
note: Reaching back to 1768 when Sheffield artisan William Butler was granted his BUTLER cutler mark, the business had been taken over by George and James Butler by 1814. Doing business as G. & J. Butler the firm name of G. Butler & Co. came into use in 1843. In 1853 G. Butler & Co. displayed their wares in the New York Cutlery Exhibition.

As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
