Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very cool looking sideknife. It measures 9-1/4th inches in overall size with the blade making up 5-3/8ths of those inches. What makes it really stand out is that it has the "Rough & Ready" campaign slogan edged on the blade. This slogan was used by Zachary Taylor in his campaign for President. The base of the blade has the Sheffield, England maker's marking that reads "TILLOTSON & CO. SHEFFIELD WARRANTED". Goin's Encyclopedia of Cutlery Markings book states that they were in business only until 1859. The knife has the silver oval crossguard. The original handle is intact with the original ferrule and grip cap. The handle itself is make of a single piece of stag horn. This is a very cool knife with a great slogan and maker marking.
