Early example, possibly Civil War period and surely served on the frontier after that. 10" length. Wedge section blade carefully sharpened by the hand of a professional who did it daily with the knowledge that his knives must last him the season before replacements were available. Walnut grip scales. Well-worn with good patina from careful use.
