Here is a piece that you seldom see offered for sale these days! It is an original Confederate "Bridle Cutter” pike. These were spears made by the Confederacy during the early days of the Civil War. This is one of the toughest to encounter versions and it is believed to have been manufactured in North Carolina. This particular pattern is designed with a standard Lance that has had the bridle cutter style hook blade mounted perpendicularly on to the side. It measures 15 1/2 inches in overall length with the last 10 inches being the spear portion of the pike. This pattern is special because of the 4 3/4 inch hook that comes off the side of the pike. This was designed so the soldier on the ground could hook and cut off the bridle of the horse. It didn’t take long for them to realize that if you were that close you were too close so only a small amount were produced. As you can see this one looks just wonderful. It was cleaned and coated when it came out of the ground. It is an often that you see one of these offered in this fine excavated condition these days. This is a fantastic piece of weaponry from a war that went from spears and daggers to machine guns and torpedoes in only four years.
