See Neumann, Collector’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution, P.118 #6 for a similar example, where he notes that a large number of these have been found at Revolutionary War campsites. They were used as utility knives, to construct blinds from which snipers shot British soldiers in formation and weapons as needed. This example is 13 1/2" overall with its original carved wood grip. The blade is decorated one side with lines of crescents and a P maker’s mark. The opposite side is chiseled with the owner’s initials L M. Raised surface rusting over considerable original surface.
