It has a steel cross guard and a 7" parkerised bowie blade. The cross guard is crisply stamped, "U.S.N." and the reverse with manufacturer details "CAMILLUS N.Y.". It is complete with its original early leather scabbard with belt loop and retaining strap with working brass press stud fastener. It is stamped on the front 'USN'.
