Boyle & Gamble was a Richmond, Virginia, sword-maker located near the old Virginia Arsenal. They produced a variety of edged weapons for private purchase and, as Boyle, Gamble & McFee, produced edged weapons under Confederate contract. Their swords were based generally on the models used by the Federal army but the details were considerably different. No collection of Confederate edged weapons is complete without at least one product of B & G or B, G, & M.

This piece is a Confederate staff officer's sword made by Boyle & Gamble. It is a typical B & G staff sword: 29 1/2" blade, etched blade with CSA on one side, floral decorations on both sides of blade, brass guard with CS below a star, assembly numeral "4" stamped on underside of guard, one-piece wood grip with leather wrap and single strand copper wire over the wrap. The scabbard is stiffened leather with brass mounts. Condition of scabbard is excellent.

Overall condition of this piece is very good. The only flaw was performed by a previous owner who decided to sharpen the blade to compensate, perhaps, for his own lack of sharp, mental acumen. The sharpening removed the portion of the etching along the blade's edge. The letters "CSA" above the shield are still clear as is most of the etching. Fortunately, enough time has elapsed since the depredation that the patina on the blade is uniform and the ground portion is not very noticable.

The price reflects the flaw and the sword remains a good example of B & G's work and a mute witness to the glory of the South.
