Fashioned from a Confederate foot officer sword, this Civil War Confederate belt knife measures approximately 17 ¼ inches in total length with an 11 9/16 inch hand forged blade with unstopped fuller. Interestingly enough the brass sword pommel appears to have been secured to the peened blade tang using a modified musket rear site screw. Most closely associated today with Virginia and North Carolina as the official state flower of each, the pommel features a deeply engraved dogwood flower with foliage. The sword grip retains a goodly portion of original leather wrap though the wire is gone as it was likely removed as part of the conversion from sword to knife. The cross guard was fashioned from a heavy iron washer. All tight and in as found condition with deep natural age patina on all components, this Confederate field officer’s sword to make doside knife is most likely the product of a discarded, broken sword or battlefield recovery and will serve well as an honest example of the ingenuity of the common Confederate soldier.
