Unsigned yet clearly the work of a well-established craftsman, this attractive belt knife is a genuine classic of the late 1830s through early 1860s American Bowie Knife. All in pleasing as found condition with good evidence of age, originality and period use; the heavy, 7/16 of an inch thick at the back, 1 15/16 wide at the hilt by 10 ¼ inches long, blade has some period marking on the back yet remains in nice condition with no evidence of grinding or stoning with a keen nick free edge. Measuring 15 1/8 inches in overall leingth, the nicely shaped brass cross guard and furniture remain in excellent condition with a pleasing natural age coloration. The well fitted and shaped American walnut grip has a deep age crack on one side offering good age yet remaining solid without detracting from the charm of this desirable knife. A good honest example of a working knife clearly intended for use and carrying in the heyday of the classic American Bowie Knife, this piece will fit well in any quality Western Fronteer, Gold Rush, Civil War or period Americana setting. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
