Late 19th-early 20th century. Pattern popularized by J. Russell, Greenfield Mass and replicated by a number of makers to meet the demand for skinning and butchering knives which resulted from the post Civil Westward expansion. Popular with mountain men, they were used on the plains as well by buffalo hunters who provided meat for the military and railroad crews, and buffalo robes for the East Coast winters. 5 7/8" clipped point blade marked WINCHESTER / TRADE MARK / Made in U.S.A. Wood scale grips secured with three rivets. Age toning as expected but no damage or repairs. Just honest respectful use.
