As I have stated I’m new to this forum and I was wondering if anyone could help identify a bayonet I recently received. The blade states that it was made by Ames Manufacturing Co. in 1860 but I am having trouble figuring out what model it is. The blade measures to be 22 7/8” long with the handle measuring 4 3/4” long. Any help would be appreciated thanks. I’ll try to help provide additional information if possible.
Copy I made of an original 19th century Bowie by the Memphis Novelty Works. Hand forged and ground blade Fifteen inch long with both hollow and convex grinds, aged to match the original. Hand cast bronze sturrip-hilt and mahogany grip. Tinsmithed scabbard with leather lining and pinstriped japaning. www.irontreeforge.com
