This is a great knife! This is the large size sideknife that was made by the famous firm of George Wostenholm. This knife measures 12-3/4ths inches in overall length with the blade making up 8 of those inches. The blade has the classic design that was so coveted during the mid-1800's. The left hand side of the blade has the proud maker's marking that reads "G. WOSTENHOLM & SONS WASHINGTON WORKS SHEFFIELD". To the right of that mark it has the bold and clear quality marking of "I * XL". The Sheffield maker marking book notes that Wostenholm moved to the "Washington Works" in 1848 so this knife would have been made in 1848 at the earliest. The knife has the original silver crossguard intact that looks very pleasing against the original high quality stag horn grip handle. What makes this knife really stand out is that it is accompanied by the original sheath. These are almost always missing in action. It has the brownish maroon tone Moroccan leather with the gold gilt border and "I*XL" in the center. At the top of the sheath, it has the original throat intact that is made of silver. This is a fierce looking weapon that has a gorgeous look!
