  • Description: This is the Model 1873 Entrenching tool knife designed for use during the Indian Wars era of the 1880's. Produced by Springfield Armory these lightweight tools saw light duty as a digging implement. The wide flat blade tool is in very good condition, solid with large areas of carbon staining and surface roughness now showing as a plum-brown mottled appearance. The ribbed handle is solid with clear US marking showing light scratches and use marks. The leather scabbard is missing. A very good example of this seldom-seen tool.
