Click on an image to enlarge
This is a clip point style side knife made by George Wostenholm & Son of Sheffield, England in the mid 1800's. Wostenholm, one of the highest quality English knife makers, supplied knives to the US from the late 1840's up to the Civil War period. This side knife Bowie has some fantastic eye appeal. The grips are made ivory and have the yellowish orange patina that only time can produce. Both sides of the grips have small cracks near the butt of the grip. The right side looks to have had a small repair made near the bottom of the exposed tang, but it looks to have been done long ago. The original nickel plated cross guard is still very tight on the tang. The blade is a clip point style and retains it's full length. The blade has been nickel plated as well. It still has some period sharpness to it! The reverse ricasso is stamped with the letters IXL with the I just barely being visible. The reverse side of the blade is stamped in three lines G. WOSTENHOLM & SON/WASHINGTON/SHEFFIELD. This clip point side knife is 10 5/8" inches overall and has a 6 1/4" inch blade. This English made side knife would look great in any Civil War display!
