Our Price: sold

Blade length: 9 7/8". Overall length: 14 5/8". This seldom seen bowie/bayonet is possibly Confederate. It has a similar style blade to bowie/bayonets produced by Cook & Brothers of New Orleans, LA for use with sporting rifles. Unlike the other known bowie/bayonets by Cook & Brothers, this example fits entirely over the muzzle rendering the gun unfireable. It has also been postulated that this rare weapon could have been used as a pike head. Blade is unmarked. Brass hilt & crossguard. Brass mounted leather scabbard. A similar bowie appears on p. 216 of “The Bowie Knife” by Norm Flayderman.

 

Blade has a light gray cleaned finish & shows evidence of sharpening. Hilt & grips are undamaged. Scabbard mounts appear to be original, the stud on the throat is missing & no brass pins are present. The leather body of the scabbard appears to be a replacement.
