This is a great knife! This is the large size sideknife that was made by the famous firm of George Wostenholm. This knife measures 11-1/2 inches in overall length with the blade making up 7 of those inches. The blade has the double edged spear point with a very fierce look. The left hand side of the blade has the proud maker's marking that reads "G. WOSTENHOLM & SONS / WASHINGTON WORKS / SHEFFIELD". At the base of the other side of the blade it has the bold and clear quality marking of "I * XL". The knife has the original silver crossguard intact that looks very pleasing against the original handle. The handle has both of the original mother of pearly panels with a gorgeous look. On one side it has the silver inlay in the middle of the panel. The knife is accompanied by the original sheath. The original ones are are almost always missing in action and this one is the original. It has the Moroccan leather with the simple lined border edge. At the top of the sheath, it has the original throat intact that is made of silver as is the drag. This is a fierce looking weapon that would have been a great last line of defense for a soldier on either side of the Civil War.
