Used to clear brush and fashion blinds from which American troops fired on the British, fascine knives were officially issued during the Revolution. See Collector’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of the America Revolution, Neumann, p.118. This classic example was retired after the war to a barn wall or attic where it was occasionally visited by wood worms and frequently rained upon. It is blacksmith made and would have had a haft of about 15” for one or two hand use.  11 ¼” in length and in condition as found in the 1950’s.
