Civil War Era


The little ol'  pocketknife was probably the most used cutting edge item in the Civil War.  The sheer utility alone made them must carry tools.  The lightweight properties made them unobtrusive.

Period correct examples show up for sale here periodically.  If you're into history, whether it be Civil War history or knife history, these knives make great collectibles.
