I did a three hour hunt that produced not one, but two knives! These are from a Second Seminole War US army camp that was on my property back in the early 1840s! Unbelievable!! Ive got the smaller one in electrolysis now. The de-rusted one in the photo i found several months back and has been through electrolysis already.

First knife is done with electrolysis. Just think, for all we know, US General Ethan Allen Hitchcock could have used these knives himself! He was stationed at a small fort a few miles away from where i found these!
