English-Made Side Knife & Sheath Imported by R. H. Alexander, New York - Stag Handles

Item No. 2600795

A lovely English-made side knife with its original sheath, a style popular with soldiers. The knife measures 8 5/8” overall with a blade length of 4 1/2”. The ricasso is marked “ALEXANDER / SHEFFIELD.” R. H. Alexander was a New York-based importer of Sheffield-made knives. Another mark, “N Y” with a shield between the letters is two inches from the guard. This knife has certainly seen a lot of use, as the blade’s contouring suggests it had a traditional bowie clip point that has been worn down into more of a spear point. The guard I believe is bronze. The scales are stag, with a deep scratch on one side that doesn’t penetrate all the way through the scale. The matching leather sheath also has the “N Y” mark with the shield.
