  1. Here's one recently listed on e-bay - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Civil-War-M1860-saber-Cut-Down-Probably-used-WWII-/253305630990?hash=item3afa31310e%3Ag%3A9oUAAOSwnVhaLdgv&nma=true&si=MQJo2VIz8dZi0yFrsQc1syCR8Dg%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  2. It's a castration hook for livestock. It's a castration knife. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-2-Blade-Stainless-Kutmaster-Castration-Folding-Knife/152750343115?hash=item2390a143cb:g:ahQAAOSwtKtZ3QHz
  3. Here's a picture of one but I don't think he bought it. Sheath says 304th Infantry with the name Richie scratched into it.
  4. I'm leaning towards possible a possible private purchase type knife also maybe British made. There was also a Robbins Dudley push dagger but I don't think he bought it.
  5. The blade is marked George Butler & Co Sheffield with the ART in a circle trademark. I don't have anything to work off of but the pictures the fellow sent me by electronic mail. I suspect that is a table carving knife with a re-profiled blade. Butler made Bowie type knives but I never found picture of one with other than stag slab grips not to say they didn't also make cutlery handled pieces. Here's an English one I picked up awhile back. Made between 1896 and about 1926. Big old sticker blades like 1 1/2inches wide blade 10 inches.
  6. Here are some of the other knives the fellow purchased. Far left a cut down M1860 cavalry saber fighting knife,3rd from left a Case "Pig Sticker".2nd from right a re handled Sykes Farbairn,3rd from right a Case XX V44.
  7. The two knives were from the same collection a buddy purchased them from with some other WW2 U.S. military knives and bayonets including a very nice M1880 Rifleman's Knife w/sheath.
  8. I agree, many knives being sold as theater knives aren't. Many are post war knives made as projects from magazine articles, home shops, high school shop projects.
  9. I sent a picture of this to Frank Trzaska. It is also his opinion this is a theater made type of knife.
  10. The reason I was curious about this knife was because there was also one of this. OSS drop knife - The knife I originally posted looks a little too well made to be a theater knife, especially the sheath.
  11. I just don't have enough knife books. Is it U.S.? ID?
  12. Thanks. It's not mine and I'm trying to find out a possible date of usage. I'm not where all my reference books are either which is a handicap.
  13. Can anyone ID this as to usage and date of use -
  14. Can anyone ID this. N S Meyer piece-
