This sword was taken from the book "The Era of the American Revolution". These swords varied with the wealth and the taste of those who carried them. We designed our specimen with two sheaths on the scabbard located just under the sword's clam shell which contain an eating knife and fork. The clam shell prevents loss of the utensils but still allows them to be seen even when the sword is sheathed. All grips are made from polished black horn. The double edged blade s made from fine sword steel and has a 22" fuller centered on its 25" length. The eating knife is shaped like a hunting knife with its 51/2" blade and could be used as such. All hardware is polished brass.
