VINTAGE SHEFFIELD LONG BOWIE KNIFE & ORIGINAL SHEATHA vintage Sheffield Manufactured Long Bowie Knife in its original sheath, part of a collection of Vintage Sheffield Made Knives, please refer our other listings
Overall nice original condition,
We would date this as a vintage but more recent Sheffield Knife than the other knives from the collection ( 1960's era ? ) as the hilt retaining strap has the more modern "ring press stud" rather than the more vintage British "Newey # England # " stamped "Straight Spring" press stud as on most of the other in the Sheffield Knife Collection. However we did speak to the longest serving member of Hopkinsons and his opinion was that their trade mark stamped on one side of the forte "VENTURE" was of vintage manufacture as that trade mark was etched on the more recent production knives.
Blade length about 14.8 cm long and a stacked washers hilt with full blade tang about 11 cm long.
Has the manufacturer " Sheffield England" stamped on the other forte.
This knife has some appearance of age to it. The blade has on one side some very fine age stains to the plated finish,and some age creasing to the lower section of the sheath.
Otherwise press stud works fine and overall nice original condition.
You must be at least 18 years of age to buy this item.
