  1. Absolutely beautiful condition, SUPER RARE, Confederate manufactured wooden scabbard Confederate Cavalry saber.  Most collectors now believe this to be a product of Kraft, Goldschmidt, and Kraft of Columbia, SC.  This extremely rare Confederate saber was for many years believed a product of H. Marshall of Atlanta, GA.  This example has a bright, clean blade and an excellent grip with original wrap and wire.  The original wooden scabbard is one of the nicest that I have seen in years.  This fine Confederate Cavalry saber was for many years on display in a GAR Post in Boston.  You couldn't ask for a nicer example of this extremely scarce Confederate manufactured Cavalry saber and scabbard.--$8,500.

  2. Early Battlefield pick-up Confederate manufactured "Dog River" C.S. Cavalry saber.  Although rusty - the blade is 100% stable and smooth brown.  The guard and cap remain 100% intact and have a near dug brown-green patina.  The high copper content Confederate "red brass" guard has a nice little Southern casting flaw and you can see a little light through the flaw !!  Any Confederate collector would love this relic !!--$975.SOLD

  3. Very attractive "attic look" Confederate manufactured Foot Officer's Sword.  Although we are not exactly sure "which" maker, but the sword has definite traits of New Orleans production.  The blade has a nice uncleaned grey-brown patina and is the classic "unstopped fuller" C.S. type.  The guard is nice Confederate "red brass" (high copper content), and has a deep bronze - near chocolate patina.  The grip has complete original wrap and wire.  Just a nice - nice straight out of the attic Confederate Foot Officer's Sword.--$2,450.

  4. Very nice condition, hand blacksmith crafted, 12 1/2 inch Confederate sideknife.  The blade appears to be blacksmith crafted from a file.  It remains razor sharp and is just beginning to darken with age.  The original turned walnut grip remains perfectly intact with a brass cross guard and an inlaid silver plate for a presentation.  But the plate is open having never been engraved.  The knife has a very attractive, rich, uncleaned, aged patina overall and will make a nice addition to any Southern display.--$595.SOLD

  5. Just in, import English Cavalry saber with rare Confederate "MOLE" marking.  The blade has a smooth, aged, gray-brown patina, and the grip is worn to wood with a portion missing.  This is the saber only without scabbard, and it shows clear evidence of lots of actual field service.  Quite reasonably priced and is just as Confederate as a "Boyle & Gamble" or "Nashville Plow Works".--$795.

  6. Model 1840, import Heavy Cavalry saber and scabbard.  Model 1840 sabers - "The Old Wristbreaker" - were extensively carried by both Union and Confederate Cavalry during the American Civil War.  The famous Southern Cavalry General, Nathan Bedford Forrest, carried one early in the war as did many of the men in his command.  This example is out of a local estate, and was almost certainly C.S. carried.  The blade remains in very nice condition with luster and cross brushing still visible.  The grip has original wrap and wire, and the brass guard has a rich, aged, brown patina.  The iron scabbard is in nice condition as well with a smooth, brown, attic patina and is without a single dent.--$795.

  7. Just brought in by a local Rutherford County family.  This is a very nice condition Model 1860 "Henry Boker" import Cavalry Saber and Scabbard.  This is the same company that make the famous "Boker" pocket knives.  The saber is in very nice condition with a smooth aged brown patina on the blade - complete leather wrap and wire on the grip - nice clear "Henry Boker - Solingen" mark, and the scabbard is in ver nice condition as well with a smooth chocolate brown patina, and shows very nice service wear in the ring mounts.  This is a classic example of the type import saber that many Confederate Cavalrymen were carrying in the American Civil War.--$850.SOLD

  8. Rare Civil War Confederate retractable blade pike produced in Georgia as requested by Gov. Joe Brown in 1862.  This unusual weapon was the invention of a Methodist minister from Vermont who resided in Georgia.  The oval wooden shaft is made out of two pieces of pine hollowed out for a double edged fourteen inch blade.  The entire pike length with blade extended is 86 inches.  It has a cast iron butt and a brass collar at the top with a catch mechanism on the side that allows the blade to slide out.  This pike is in excellent condition with all the authentic parts.  It would be a very unique addition to any Civil War Confederate collection.--$2,950.SOLD

  9. SUPER, SUPER RARE, Nashville, Tennessee, made COLLEGE HILL CONFEDERATE CAVALRY OFFICERS' SABER AND SCABBARD.  The College Hill saber differs from the Nashville Plow in that the ribbon on the College Hill saber guard is unmarked, and the grip backstrap is made of iron rather than brass and has a capstan nut on the base.  There are at least ten Nashville Plow Confederate Cavalry Officers' sabers for every one College Hill.  On this example, the blade has just begun to darken with age.  The brass guard has a near chocolate brown aged patina, and the grip is worn to polished wood with the original wire remaining intact.  The brass mounted College Hill scabbard has a smooth, brown patina, has several small dings and marks from field service, and the iron scabbard ring is worn 1/3 way through the upper brass mount indicating that this saber has seen lots of actual field service.  The College Hill Cavalry Officers' saber is rare enough that I typically only get about one a year.  Here is your chance to own one of the tougher Confederate manufactured Cavalry Officers' Sabers around.--$9,850.

  10. Confederate manufactured, Roman style, Artillery Short Sword.  The blade has an overall dark patina with some pitting in areas.  The massive cast brass guard has a rich, aged, bronze patina and shows typical Confederate crudity and flaws.  Every Confederate collection needs a CS manufactured Artillery Short Sword.--$1,150.

  11. Quite unique handcrafted Confederate bowie knife, blacksmith fabricated from an early 1820 era Eaglehead Militia sword.  The bowie measures 20" overall with a massive 14" blade.  The blade remains very sharp and is just beginning to turn gray/brown with age.  The grip is made of hand carved bone, and the brass guard and pommel cap are fashioned from the original brass eagle head sword guard.  There are remnants of the original leather scabbard remaining, but it is very fragile.  This is one massive and impressive knife.--$1,250.

  12. Very nice condition, original, non-excavated Confederate Pike Head with a small portion of the original wooden shaft.  It measures 17" overall with a 9" Pike blade.  There is a law that says, "Every Confederate blade collector must have an example of an original Confederate Pike."--$895.

  13. Just in out of the local area, Confederate manufactured "Dog River" style C.S. cavalry saber and scabbard.  The blade is in nice condition with unstopped fuller and typical Confederate irregularities.  It is just beginning to gray with age.  The red brass three-branch Confederate guard has a rich, never cleaned, bronze-brown patina.  The scabbard is Confederate manufactured with a lap seam and brass mounts and has a uniform, brown patina overall with good surface wear in the brass mounts.  This will make a nice addition to your Confederate Cavalry display.--$3,850.SOLD

  14. Extremely scarce, three line stamp "Memphis - Novelty Works - Thos Leech & Co." Confederate manufactured cavalry saber and scabbard.  This saber is out of a local Rutherford County estate and is in beautiful, rich, untouched condition.  The blade has a smooth, chocolate patina throughout; and the high copper content, three branch brass guard has a beautiful, aged, bronze patina and is stamped on the reverse "Memphis - Novelty Works - Thos Leech & Co."  The grip has a fine twist cord covering the leather wrap and has been in place since the Civil War Era.  Its purpose appears to be to provide a better grip.  The metal scabbard has a smooth, uncleaned, chocolate patina with brass mounts typical of Leech and Rigdon production.  The Leech and Rigdon is one of the rarest and most popular of all Confederate manufactured cavalry sabers.--$6,850.SOLD

  15. Nice condition and very rare to find - "George Wostenholm - IXL Cuttlery" Union Civil War Stag Handle Navy knife.  It still remains sharp as a razor.  A fantastic Christmas Gift for that Navy guy in your family !!--$250.SOLD

  16. Beautiful condition 11 inch Confederate sideknife in original brass mounted leather sheath.  The blade remains bright as in 1860 and is razor sharp.  The grip is made of turned "concentric ring" rosewood.  You are not going to see a prettier little Rebel sideknife.--$950.

  17. Excellent condition, cast brass, eagle head sword pommel cap.  Eagle head swords date the 1840 - 1850 era and were extensively carried over into the Civil War Era, especially by Confederate officers.  This example has excellent, intricate detail and will display nicely.--$75.

  18. Very nice condition Southern imported (and "MOLE" marked) English cavalry saber.  The blade is clean and the "MOLE" marking is clear as can be.  The pressed leather grips remain totally intact.  A very nice condition Confederate imported Cavalry saber.--$850.SOLD

  20. Massive, Confederate, D-Guard bowie measuring 24 inches overall with an 18 1/2 inch blade.  It has a beautiful, never cleaned, chocolate brown patina with its original walnut grip perfectly intact.  In the words of Crocodile Dundee - "NO---this is a knife!!"--$1,750.

  21. Very nice condition, Confederate Arsenal manufactured, Naval Cutlass in original leather scabbard.  The blade remains clean and bright and measures 21 1/2 inches in length.  The grip is crudely cast, and the guard appears to be cast, but actually has the edge folded back to make the perimeter.  It is marked only with a serial number.  Some collectors feel this to be a product of Cook & Brothers while others feel it to be a Leech and Rigdon product.  I personally lean toward it being a Leech and Rigdon product because of its similarity to some of their other products.  The leather scabbard remains complete and original, but is missing the brass throat and drag at the top and bottom of the scabbard.  It has been a long time since I have seen a Confederate manufactured cutlass with a blade this nice.--$4,250.

  22. Very scarce, "1860 date" Ames manufactured Light Cavalry saber and scabbard.  This saber was just brought into the shop a couple of hours ago and has a smooth, gently aging, gray/brown patina on the blade with markings of "1860 - Ames Mfg. Co. Chicopee Mass" and is NOT "US" marked.  The grip remains completely intact with original wrap and wire, and the metal scabbard has the typical dings and marks of lots of field service.  There is extensive wear in the upper ring mount indicating lots of time in the saddle.  1858, 1859, and 1860 Ames Cavalry sabers that surface in the South that are devoid of the US marks almost always were Confederate carried.  This is a classic example of exactly that type saber.--$1,150.SOLD

  23. Nice condition "CS" marked, Roman style, Confederate Artillery short sword.  This example has a smooth, chocolate brown blade with a rich, aged, bronze patina on the massive, cast copper/brass guard.  The guard is marked "CS" in the center of the cross guard on each side and also has a recessed star cast into each side of the pommel.  Many collectors believe this pattern Confederate Artillery sword is likely to have been made at the Selma Confederate Armory.--$3,250.

  24. Excellent condition, Confederate "CS marked" short artillery sword.  This sword is of the style that has the "CS and star" cast into each side of the massive cast brass guard.  The blade has a smooth, aging, gray/brown patina with no pitting whatsoever.  Partially completed examples of this type sword have been recovered in the river near Selma, Alabama, and it is thought these swords might have been made there.  This is as nice an example of this rare style Confederate sword as I have had in a long time.--$3,450.

  25. Absolutely beautiful E.J. Johnston (of Macon, GA), Confederate manufactured, short Artillery sword. This type sword is easily recognizable by its concentric ring pattern on the cast brass guard. The cast guard is cast from typical Confederate high copper alloy material. The blade is in very nice condition, with a smooth, chocolate patina, and several typical Confederate casting impurity areas. The cast brass guard has an absolutely beautiful rich, aged-never cleaned-bronze patina. This is a Confederate manufactured sword that rarely comes up for sale.--$1,950.

  26. Extremely rare, Virginia manufactured Cavalry saber manufactured at the Virginia Armory located in Richmond.  As originally designed, these Cavalry saber blades were massively long, measuring a full 40 1/2 inches.  These sabers were designed to be carried by a cross-shoulder sling and frog; therefore, the all iron scabbards were fitted at the throat only with a stud to engage the frog.  Many of the massively long Virginia manufactured sabers had the blades slenderized and shortened to the more 1860 era conventional 32 to 36 inch length.  The sabers were also re-scabbarded to conform with the standard 1860 method of carrying.  These scabbards were of iron with brass ring mounts and rings.  The throat and drag were of iron.  This example has a very nice condition, slenderized blade, measuring 35 1/2 inches long.  The brass mounted iron scabbard is in excellent condition, but does show clear wear from time in the saddle.  The grip is worn to polished wood with a small piece missing just at the rear base.  The saber has typical VA regimental markings on the top of the blade.  It has a beautiful, untouched, attic patina throughout with no evidence at all of cleaning.--$4,250.SOLD

  27. Fresh in the door, crude, blacksmith-made, 17" Confederate Bowie Knife.  The blade is blacksmith handcrafted from a large rasp and has many rasp teeth still remaining visible, both on the flats of the blade and along the upper edge.  The copper ferrule around the walnut handle and the brass washer around the riveted tang have a 150-year-old, never cleaned, rich bronze/brown aged patina.  This is a wicked hand-made Confederate weapon, and still remains sharp enough to easily cut you.  It is going to be a fine addition to someone's Confederate blade display.--$975.

  28. Very rare Confederate manufacturaed Foot Officer's sword by "A. Dufilho".   This is a classic example of a New Orleans, LA, made Confederate Foot Officer's sword.  Prior to the Civil War, Agruider Dufilho had been a former cutlery manufacturer, and during the Civil War, turned swordmaker.  One of Dufilho's primary products was a well made Foot Officer's sword that bears some resemblance to the Federal Model 1850 Foot Officer's sword.  His New Orleans firm stamped some of his swords with his name and address but equally as many were left unmarked without any stampings or markings at all.  Dufilho's products, though, can be easily recognized by classic features of this well known maker.  This example has a clean, unmarked, 29" long blade with a 23" long unstopped fuller down each side.  The original Dufilho cast brass guard remains intact and in very nice condition with a rich, aged patina.  The grip retains the sword's original black leather and is in excellent condition.  The fine twisted brass wire is missing and has been for many, many years.  This Confederate manufactured Foot Officer's sword made in New Orleans by A. Dufilho represents a classic, original, southern sword of the Civil War that is in very nice, honest condition.  This is a quality CS manufactured edged weapon at a very fair price.--$2,850.

  29. Very scarce first pattern Confederate saber made in the facility in Nashville, TN, that would eventually produce the famous Nashville Plow Works Confederate Cavalry Officers sabers.  This type cavalry saber was produced by "Sharps and Hamilton" and consists of a long sweeping unstopped fuller blade and a massive cast bronze "D-Guard".  The Sharps and Hamilton saber has an iron backstrap and capstan nut on the rear of the tang.  As can be seen in the photographs above, the very first Nashville Plow Works Cavalry Officers sabers continued several of the Sharps and Hamilton traits, including the capstan nut and the iron backstrap.  After Nashville Plow Works' earliest production, they went to a brass backstrap and dropped the capstan nut in favor of simply bradding.  This example has a very nice condition clean blade with unstopped fuller and clear evidence of being hand forged.  The massive bronze guard is in excellent condition with a rich, aged patina.  The saber's grip shows extensive use being worn down to polished wood.  Here is your opportunity to own one of the very first Confederate sabers (saber only without scabbard) out of Nashville, TN.--$2,850.

Cavalry Saber And Scabbard.  This saber was just brought in out of the local area here in Middle Tennessee, and is believed to have been carried by one of the "Dibrell" boys from the area around Sparta, TN.  The blade is classic C.S. manufacture "unstopped fuller",  and is just beginning to grey with age.  The guard is richly patinaed Confederate "Red Brass", and the grip is original - but is worn through to wood beneath the leather in some areas -  from actually being carried.  The scabbard is classic "brass mounted - lap seam" Confederate, and has a thick brown patina - top to bottom, but has lost the little brass plate at the top somewhere along the line over the past 150 years.  If you've always wanted a pure "C.S."
