Bowie knife - brass spine

An early style bowie knife - quite massive with a long clip point - and an extension coming off of the guard that covers the spine of the blade. The softer-than-steel brass would be used to temporarily "catch" an opponents blade: block with your spine, and when his edge nicks in, use leverage to wind and stab or cut.
