    Item Description: Up for sale is a Civil War Dahlgren Baynoet. It is also known as the Dahlgren Bowie Knife Bayonet.

    The special bayonet is a short, broad and stout knife of the well known bowie-pattern, the principal was designed to be in the hand in close conflict as in boarding." Stamped on the center ricasso is the markings "U.S.N. / D.R. / 1862" while the reverse ricasso bears the maker's three-line mark of "AMES MFG & CO / CHICOPEE / MASS". The accompanying original, rare leather scabbard is unmarked and in good condition. The throat and tip are constructed of brass while the sheath portion is of black bridle leather.

    Produced for the Navy by well-known arms maker Ames of Chicopee, Massachusetts in September 1862, this finely-crafted edged weapon features an unfullered, bowie-shaped, spear point blade 12 1/8" long with a modified clipped point tip on the obverse side. Very hefty, 3/8" thick steel blade is in excellent condition. Knife has a one-piece pommel, guard and back strap of heavy brass with a one-piece walnut grip fitted between the pommel back strap and the guard. Base of the brass pommel is stamped with the government armory sub-inspector's initials "DR" (David Rice - ASI), in a small oval. All brass has acquired dark bronze patina. Bottom of the walnut grip features four finger grooves for a positive grasp.

    Here is a fine opportunity to own a rare and unique edged weapon specimen of the American Navy in the Civil War.
