The leather attachment that has been riveted to handle is quite unique. The blade and guard are pitted, as are many of these inexpensive knives that the Confederate Soldiers used.The steel is very hard with no flex to it, and is about 1/4 thick at widest point. This has been in a collection in Texas for many years owned by a very good friend. Unfortunately he is not able to converse anymore to ask specifics about knife and how long he actually owned it. If I recall this knife along with some other CW relics came out of a Deaccessioned Museum in Central Texas many years ago. All of our items are very securely packed.
