Swords & Blades
UBER-RARE, Beautiful, & MEAN Cajun Killer!
13" of New Orleans Confederate COLD STEEL!
Ultra-Rare CS/Louisiana Clip-Point Bowie Knife
Purchased DIRECTLY from the Renowned Author, Appraiser, CS Blade Authority, Mr. John Sexton
As Explained through his DECADES of Experience and Specialty in CS Blades, this is an Archetypical KNOWN blade produced out of New Orleans (the traits of Buffalo Horn Handle, flat Pommel Cap w/small tacks, the Handle & "T" Guard design, as well as being made from a SAW BLADE!)
When it comes to CS swords and blades of any kind, there are only a HANDFUL of TRUE, REAL "EXPERTS" in the field, recognized and respected by all....and Mr. John Sexton is ALWAYS on that list (and usually around the TOP!) His decades of collecting, purveying, and appraising such specific pieces have made him most uniquely qualified as one of the true "Godfather's" of Confederate STEEL! Purchased directly from Mr. Sexton earlier this year, offered here is as he described without hesitation (given the plethora of KNOWN TRAITS and ID'ed specimens) is a real "Cajun Killer" from New Orleans! The construction facets, form, materials, and traits are ALL consistent with the known & ID'ed specimens all coming out of New Orleans--and they are EXTREMELY RARE! The handles are all constructed of Buffalo Horn for the grips--and this one is SUPERB! The pommel-cap is a simple flat brass disc, with multiple small tacks in the end around the outer edges. The "T" handle is also MOST DISTINCTIVE in that it is ERGONOMICALLY DESIGNED to be LONGER for the Confederate Solider to have MORE PROTECTION for his fingers, as the top is shorter, given how you handle the blade, the top of your hand is a small area to cover versus on the bottom where your 4 fingers are gripping around the handle. The blades on these are typically crudely fashioned from large saw-blades, as this one evidently is here, given the bottom "saw-tooth" loop-hole at the bottom of the WIDE and THICK blade (1.5" WIDE at base ricasso, and .50" THICK at the base!) It tapers crudely into a nice clip-point "false-edged" point, and the finish--though quite well done, given they are typically smooth and "armory-bright" finished, as this BEAUTIFUL all-original, UN-DAMAGED and "UN-TOUCHED rare beauty is--still is somewhat classically Confederate-crude! The total length of this Cajun Bowie Fighting Knife is precisely 13" long, with THAT MEAN 9" LONG BLADE!
Again...100% ORIGINAL...100% REAL "CAJUN" STEEL from New Orleans...100% UN-DAMAGED and UN-TOUCHED...and coming through the hands of one of the most noted EVER authorities on Confederate Blades...THIS IS A "MUST-HAVE" in YOUR COLLECTION!!!
Don't believe ME?!?!? ASK SEXTON, YOURSELF!
And you WILL NOT FIND ONE BETTER or CHEAPER....ANYWHERE!!!

A "Textbook" Specimen in EVERY SENSE (See under the seminal CS Reference Book by Author/Dealer Mr. Shannon Pritchard in his "Collecting the Confederacy" reference book
NEVER have I seen a LEGIT, PERIOD cut-down British famous Pattern 1853 Cavalry saber--imported by the THOUSANDS exclusively by the Confederacy--let alone being an EXCLUSIVE "textbook" and "Holy Grail" specimen of being the wartime State of Georgia purchased/and so-stamped with the Georgia "G" ownership marking VIVIDLY CLEAR upon the ricasso, AND the EXCLUSIVE CS exporter's demarcation of "ISAAC & Co" of the Issac Campbell and Company CS supplier out of England. It is LITERALLY a "textbook" specimen, as shown on page 109 of the SEMINAL CS Reference Book by Author/Dealer Mr. Shannon Pricthard's "Collecting the Confederacy" reference book (which, IF YOU DON'T HAVE--GO BUY ONE NOW!). This is NOT an IRON-HANDLE specimen, nor the simple "leather-wrapped" Mole-made specimen, but a HARDWOOD--maybe even gutta-percha--exquisitely checkered-gripped specimen, as so noted by others--and is in the MOST BEAUTIFUL, ORIGINAL, 100% period and UNTOUCHED, ONLY-KNOWN-TO-EXIST cut-down specimen for a short sword, Artillery Sword, Naval Cutlass, or ONE MEAN MOTHER "Bowie" fighting knife! Coming STRAIT OUT OF GEORGIA, this 100% original, untouched, ATTIC MINTY specimen with the UN-DAMAGED and UN-REPAIRED checkered grips, and original just-fading dark back/greyish blade patina to the exactly 19.25" long cut-down "Clip-Point" blade is simply ASTOUNDING. Again, NO DAMAGE, NO REPAIRS, 100% FINEST QUALITY with the RAREST CS MARKINGS you will EVER FIND on one of these beauties--and THE ONLY-KNOWN-TO-EXIST cut-down specimens, at that! I even showed it to CS fighting knife/Bowie Expert and "guru" Mr. Lee Hadaway, with his "Wow....KILLER!" response to it!
