VINTAGE SHEFFIELD MADE RARE COMPANION BOWIE BLADE KNIFE SET IN ORIGINAL SHEATH Knives
### RESERVED ### VINTAGE SHEFFIELD MADE RARE COMPANION BOWIE BLADE KNIFE SET IN ORIGINAL SHEATH
Overall nice original condition.
Would say 1940's / 1950's by the use of the Newey Spring Stud on the leather fastener, the type used on WW2 Denison smocks, not the more modern spring studs.
The larger of the two Bowie knives has the manufacturer "J Nowill & Sons Sheffield England" and "D X & Keys" etched on the centre of the 10.5 cm long blade. Those particular marks combination have been in use since 1842 but not since the 1960's? The smaller of the two Bowie knives has a 6 cm long blade. Both Bowies are nice quality with a full tang
Came with a collection of Vintage Sheffield Knives...please refer other listings.
Would say that this is a rare item as in the many moons of collecting have not seen one of these for sale on the collectors market. Also given that unlike the larger knife which has a hilt retaining strap the smaller knife has nothing to stop it being lost from the sheath.
Overall nice original condition with press stud in working order.
