MODEL 1840 AMES “WRIST BREAKER” WITH SCABBARD

$1,195.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: E2690

A very nice example of the classic "wristbreaker" used during the Civil War. The curved blade is over 35 inches in length. Stamped at the ricasso is “AMES MFG CO / CHICOPEE /MASS”.  Stamped on the obverse is “US / JH / 1861”. The initials are those of the inspector, Joseph Hannis. The blade is clean with only a few scattered areas of light gray “clouding”. The leather washer is intact.

The brass hilt has two branches and knuckle bow. The pommel is of the Phrygian helmet style and stamped with “JH”. All brass wears a pleasing mellow patina. The leather wrapped grip is in excellent condition as well as the double twisted brass wire wrap.

The steel scabbard is dark gray with no dents and only one small, ¼” ding at the drag. It has two iron mounting rings. The inspector’s initials “BH” are stamped on the drag.

This is a beautiful “Wrist breaker”!   [jet]
