Manufactured by an unknown party, this massive knife measures 18 3/8 inches overall with a 13 3/8 inch clip point blade with a 4 3/4 inch false edge. The right side of the blade is acid etched with the name "ET Henry" in script lettering. The guard is scalloped brass with a leather washer on top. The grip is bone with a pair of decorative grooves cut just below the guard and a gentle furrow on one side near the pommel, which is a brass plate cut to the shape of the bone retained with a gently domed nut. Includes a black leather sheath, lightly tooled with a floral design and fitted with brass.

Rating Definition:

Good, the blade mostly an dark grey patina with extensive heavy dark pitting visible near the middle of the blade carrying into the edge and mostly visible etched marking. The brass shows an attractive artificial aged patina. The grip is very good with a hairline crack running its length on the right and otherwise light handling marks. The sheath is good with an applied black finish and artificially aged brass.
