Question Just Ended But What Is It ?

Is this real or does this look like a dressed up kitchen knife to anybody else?

Yep, it's real. A real dressed up kitchen knife. Hard to say, who's, and when. Looks like old work, but looks can be deceiving. Especially in pictures. Knife style dates back a while. Scabbard looks WWIIish to me. Pretty cool, whatever it is. M.P.

Yes, this is a dressed up kitchen knife.

It could be anything between civil war and WW II.
But I guess that calling it 'civil war' brings the best price

Strictly it is of course not a bowie knife.
It would not be my choice as this blade is made for cutting only.

Thought I'd add a picture before the listing disappears ....not unusual for 'kitchen' knives to have their 'duties' re-defined....seems to have some age and would certainly be functional as a weapon.
