TAYLOR & BROTHER / SHEFFIELD. Blade is 3.75" long & knife is 8-1/2" overall when open. The snap when closing is very strong. The Sailors were not allowed during this period to have pointed blades on their pocket or side knives.This does have the lanyard hole in the handle with wonderful stag scales. I thought that the main pin that the blade rotates on has been replaced, but everyone that I have had a chance to inspect is exactly this way. The item "Civil War U.
