This is a great piece! This piece started it's life as a size sideknife that was made by the famous firm of George Wostenholm. This knife was bent and had the end rolled so it could be used as a hoof scraper for a horse. What a cool way to improvise a piece. The left hand side of the blade has the proud maker's marking that reads "G. WOSTENHOLM & SONS / WASHINGTON WORKS / SHEFFIELD". AT the base of the blade it has the bold and clear quality marking of "I * XL". The knife has the original handle replaced with a piece of horn and you can tell from the wear that it was used quite a bit. What a great piece of Civil War horse equipment made from a knife.
