The heart of the weapon is a large bowie knife in the archetypical Confederate style, 17-1/2” overall with an impressive 12-1/4” inch long clip point blade, fitted with a fine flat-sided wood handle and brass fittings. The guard and pommel are both thick and rugged brass with dual "quillions" on both, an upturned hook on the front and a brass ring on the back. The rings have an external diameter of about 1-1/4” inches and an unfinished internal diameter of about 3/4 of an inch. The sheath is of brown leather construction, with brass fittings. Produced by an unknown maker, the intended use of this very distinctive Confederate weapon is a matter of some speculation; Abels' "Classic Bowie Knives" (page 66) asserts that it was likely intended as a combat knife that could also double as a pike head or bayonet.
