We have long admired the timeless good looks and pure functional design of the American Riflemans Knife. This rare blade was originally issued in extremely limited numbers, and has the distinction of being the first knife officially designed for, and purchased by, the U.S. Army back in 1849. Our blade takes inspiration from an antique in the private collection of Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson, and while our blade is not an exact replica, it features many of the design nuances that make this knife such a classic! Its big, stout spear point blade is stiff enough to oppose even much larger weapons, making it an ideal complimentary knife to carry and use alongside a saber or cutlass. Plus, its beefy 12” blade and solid guard make a more than capable stand-alone blade in its own right! Its easy to see why it was chosen as a back-up blade for our nation's riflemen. The Cold Steel 1849 Riflemans Knife is hand forged from 1085 High Carbon steel, with a solid brass guard and beautiful Rosewood handle that encapsulate the sturdy full tang. The Riflemans Knife is sold complete with a high quality hand-stitched leather sheath and belt frog, with polished brass throat and chape. Perfect for re-enactors and collectors alike.
