This is one knife you can bring to a gun fight. This fixed blade is an authentic replica of the Ames 1849 Rifleman's Knife designed for sidearm carry by American soldiers over 150 years ago. It features the same full tang spear point blade, rosewood handle, and brass quillons as the original model. The construction was modernized with 1065 high carbon steel for improved blade durability and edge retention. The rifleman's knife can be carried just like the original US army rifleman carried it, with the included leather and polished brass scabbard.

Quillons, also referred to as a cross-guard, have been protecting hands since the 10th century. These metal bars are placed between a blade and the hilt on a sword or knife to prevent the user's hands from sliding too close to the blade's edge.
