1849 Rifleman's Knife

£65.25

Be the first to review this product

This rare blade was originally issued in extremely limited numbers and has the distinction of being the first knife officially designed for, and purchased by, the U.S. Army back in 1849. The blade takes inspiration from an antique in the private collection of our company President Lynn C Thompson, and while the blade is not an exact replica, it features many of the design nuances that make this knife such a classic! It’s big, stout spear point blade is stiff enough to oppose even much larger weapons, making it an ideal complimentary knife to carry and use alongside a saber or cutlass. Plus, it's 12” blade and solid guard make a more than capable stand-alone blade in its own right! It’s easy to see why it was chosen as a back-up blade for riflemen. The 1849 Rifleman’s Knife is hand-forged from 1085 High Carbon steel, with a solid brass guard and beautiful Rosewood handle scales that encapsulate the sturdy full tang. The Rifleman’s Knife is sold complete with a high-quality hand-stitched leather sheath and belt frog, with polished brass throat and chape.
