|CIVIL WAR STYLE BOOT KNIFE GH5047 by United Cutlery
Bayonets, sabers, swords, short swords, cutlasses, Bowie knives, boot knives, pikes, and lances, classified as "edged weapons," appeared in considerable profusion during the Civil War. Although they served to decorate their original possessors and delight modern collectors, they inflicted few casualties. In Regimental Losses Fox points out that of the approximately 250,000 wounded treated in Union hospitals during the war only 922 were the victims of sabers or bayonets. And a large proportion of these originated in private quarrels, or were inflicted by camp guards in the discharge of their duty. With that said, we believe this Gil Hibben Boot Knife would have been a game changer for anyone in possession of it, Blue or Grey!
