So it appears to be blacksmith made which was common during the war. The confederacy didn't have many factories to produce weapons so blacksmiths definitely stayed busy.
There was a lot of hand to hand combat during the war & the Bowie was a favorite among the confederates. Once can only imagine what this has seen & which solider carried it! Amazing piece of history and a wonderful additional to any collection.
