Dahlgren Knife Bayonet – $1900.00
Admiral Dahlgren’s own description of this weapon states “The special bayonet is a short, broad and stout knife of the well known bowie-pattern, the principal use of which I designed to be in the hand in close conflict as in boarding.”
Designed for use with the Whitney-Plymounth Navy rifle, this particular example of the Dahlgren is in fine condition. and has the original and correct brass mounted scabbard, correctly Ames marked, 1864 dated, and DR inspected blade. DR inspector marks found on to of handle cap as well. Missing only a single tiny rivet at the bottom of the scabbard. Wooden grip unmolested. Brass has a nice mellow tone. Leather scabbard has no breaks or cracks. Blade speaks for itself. Overall length is 16.5”. This Bayonet has been vetted by a well-known blade expert. Nicest one I have seen available. $1900.00
