The knife is a fine large size that measures 14 inches in overall length with the blade making up 8 of those inches. This is the perfect size for up close and personal fighting. The blade has the classic spear point design that so many Civil War era Bowie knives had. What makes this one so special is the etching on the side of the blade. It is detailed with the spreadwing Union eagle in the center. It boldly reads "CALIFORNIA KNIFE / AMERICA / THE / LAND OF FREEDOM....THE PATRIOTS - SELF DEFENDER / PROTECTED / BY THE BRAVE VOLUNTEER." It is all still visible with a nice look.

This one has the original high quality single piece dark wood handle intact with a beautiful untouched look. It is held in place by the German silver crown like cap. The cross guard is constructed of one piece of German silver. The knife is accompanied by an original leather sheath. The leather is the high quality brown Moroccan leather with the gold detail work. The original nickel silver top mount and drag to the scabbard are still present as well. This is a very nice looking Civil War Bowie knife in sheath.
