Modeled on the classic American "Texas Bowie" knife, we would date this as a British Vintage Manufacture throwing knife by its "Newey # England # " stamped "Straight Spring" press stud on the hilt retaining strap.
Blade length about 14.7 cm long and rosewood hilt about 10.8 cm long.
Has the manufacturer "William Rodgers Sheffield England" stamped on the forte. The trade mark was acquired by John Clarke of Sheffield in 1873.
This knife has some age to it. Apart from the Newey Straight Spring stud, the blade has some fine marks from resharpening , light age staining,very slight surface rust to the sheath rivets, some wear to the chrome finish and lettering on "Newey # England # " stamp on the press studs, a small usage hole where the tip of the blade has cut the sheath, and some age and usage curling to the tip of the sheath.
