    ~ Circa 1880 Tailors Eye Witness Bowie Knife ~


    Here we have a Bowie knife, circa 1880, when we can be certain this pattern of blade was in production.

    On the small side for a Bowie it was most likely used as a utility or trekkers knife.

    Made in Sheffield in the 19th century this is a very good quality hand ground blade. The knife has seen a lot of use and the loss of the outer curve suggests this was a favourite knife often sharpened often.

    The knife comes with its own original sheath in black leather.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The knife is 1 ½ inches (27 cm) long.

    The guard is 2 ½ inches (6 CM) wide.

    The thickness of the hilt is ¾ of an inch (2 cm).

    The knife is 10 1/4 inches (26 cm) long.

    The knife in its sheath is 10 3/4 inches (27 1/2 cm) long.

    The knife weighs 195 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The knife is in rather good condition.

    The blade still has the remains of an edge to it despite a slight inwards bow.

    The grip scales are still in good shape, though one has bent slightly away from the tang. It is still comfortable to hold.

    There is some blackening to the blade and guard to be expected with age.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £12 or the Bowie can be collected from our Portsmouth shop.
