I'll see if I can identify the Tiemann for you. The Degenhart would be much later than the Civil War.The only possible CW medical paraphernalia I have are these two knives I picked up in a box-o-knives at an estate sale. From what I can find, they were part of amputation sets sold during and post CW.
Both have hardwood handles with the same checkering pattern. The larger knife is single edge and stamped "TIEMANN" and the smaller blade is stamped "DEGNHARDT CHICAGO" and is double-edged with the upper cutting edge ~1 3/4" less than the bottom edge.
For some reason I can't upload pictures today 🤬 🤬🤬🤬
hello, the tiffany handle is elegant and appears to match well with the engraving.Damn, the thought of getting treated in a field hospital for a mini ball wound. That’s a very unusual treasure you have there, almost overkill on the tiffany style grips but who knows who lived because of a timely amputation and follow up to make sure the subsequent infection didn’t kill the patient by this doctor. Congratulations on a fine acquisition.
