I agree with what you are saying about the handle...the design of it seems much too modern. But the only reproduction blades that look similar are stainless steel blade...which this one isn't. And had flimsy thin fake brass hand guards...while the one I found if very thigh and looks to be made of iron. The blad and hand guard match identical ins fry and with to the Union hassam bowie. But the handle is not correct...also the blade appears to have been used heavily due to on the few tiny spots where rust didn't grow...there are scratches and pits.....but I agree...the handle seems much newer than the blad itself...maybe a new handle was put on like you said and "grandson" took grandpaps knife not knowing what it was and lost it in the creek...who knows...but I would still like a rough identification of the type of knife I have...any info is appreciated
