The Civil War in the US pitted the North against the South in some of the most bloody fighting this country has ever endured. And this kit would have been designed for those bloody battlefields. Each piece in this kit is hand forged entirely in carbon steel and weathered to look as authentic as possible. The set includes eight tools, including one bone saw (does not have a cutting edge), one hinged clamp, hinged scissors, two bistoury knives (one large, one small), one pick-probe, and two hooked apparatus (one singular, one double-headed). Includes compartmented cloth-lined vinyl pouch. Though each piece is functional, this kit is not designed for actual medical use by today’s standards. Great for re-enactment, educational display, or US history decoration.
