About identical to Fisher #213. 8 1/2" well forged blade with offset  median. Blade smooth with spotty oxidation and forged texture. Copper wire and tape wrapped flared terminal wood grip. The top mounted with the iconic forged bronze arrowhead form weight which distinguishes these. The purpose of the weights have been the subject of scholarly disagreement for over a century. However, as some have weights of several pounds, we have concluded that they are executioner's knives as the weight renders them useless for defense, but assures maximum effect on an immobilized victim. Ex: Baptist Missionary Society Collection.
