One of just three examples known to us. One, owned by Dr. Charles Johnson, Grand Master of South Carolina, Prince Hall Freemasons, suggesting this pattern may be associated with that position. The other, with the guard deformed in exactly the same way as this example suggesting that it was done upon the owner’s death to as was the custom for several cultures including Vikings. Style and construction set a date in the 1890s. The blade marked HORSTMAN PHILADELPHIA with light surface oxidation. Grip with small losses.
