US 1880 HUNTING KNIFE ENTRENCHING TOOL.
A very good condition example of the scarce American military knife/tool. The blade is generally good with some light sharpening to the fighting edge. Marked to the brass cross guard ‘U.S Springfield’ numbered ‘2484.’ The ribbed wood grip is virtually undamaged. To the top of the grip a metal eye has been applied for reasons unknown. All set into its original hard leather scabbard with its brass throat and its brass belt loop. At the reverse side of the scabbard a repair seems to be effected, possibly because of the weakness of the leather in that area. However, overall an excellent knife.
