This replica of the Ames M1849 Riflemans Fighting Knife has a large blade forged from high carbon steel. The guard is brass and the grip is polished wood with a pre-drilled lanyard hole. The blade tang is triple-riveted with brass into the grip.
The fighting knife comes with a leather sheath that is completed with a protective brass chape and locket. A brass button facilitates hanging it from a belt frog (belt frog not included).
The Ames M1849 was the first official US Army contract knife – only 1,000 of these large military fighting blades were made.
