Revolutionary War period ‘Hessian’ Soldier Folding Pocket Knife (6th GGF Wilhelm Fleischhut) Dated circa 1775-1780, this is a Rare 18th Century Revolutionary War period “Hessian” Soldier Folding Pocket Knife made of bone and horn (1775 - 1780). One of only a handful of known examples of this kind, the folding pocket knife is made of carved bone and horn.
The richly decorated hilt and pattern-welded blade indicate that this sword was carried by a warrior of high rank, perhaps a Viking chieftain or a Frankish nobleman. The braided copper wires on the pommel may represent an earlier Scandinavian custom of tying a protective talisman to a sword hilt
