This is a great knife! This is the large size sideknife that was made by Joseph Hawksley of Sheffield. This knife measures 11-3/4th inches in overall length with the blade making up 7-3/4ths of those inches. The blade has the double edged spear point with a very fierce look. The left hand side of the blade has the proud maker's marking that reads "JOSEPH HAWKSLEY'S CELEBRATED". The knife has the original silver crossguard intact that looks very pleasing against the original handle. The handle has both of the original mother of pearly panels with a gorgeous look. On one side it has the silver inlay in the middle of the panel. The knife is accompanied by the original sheath. The original ones are are almost always missing in action and this one is the original. It has the Moroccan leather with the border edge and a design in the center of the front of the leather. At the top of the sheath, it has the original throat intact that is made of silver as is the drag. A very similar knife that had a blade that was 1-1/4th inches longer sold for $5,875 in October of 2018. This is a fierce looking weapon that would have been a great last line of defense for a soldier on either side of the Civil War.
