From the late 1800s/early 1900s. Blade is a shade less than 6 inches; overall length is 10 1/2 inches. Well marked above the guard, M. Butt looks like some sort of ultra-hard wood, like rosewood or mahogany.Sheath also carries a Marbles stamp on the belt strap. Stacked leather washers in handle show some wear but they are quite firmly in place.
Tube sheath shows some splitting at the top, and the snap is broken. I hope you can see both of these issues in Photo No.
No splitting or breaks to the wood butt. You may prefer to clean the blade.
PLEASE LOOK carefully at all the photos. Theyre the biggest part of this description. Please pay within five days of auctions end.
