Description

Reg Cooper is a Bowie Knife maker from Sheffield. Aged in his 80's, he has been making Bowie knives for most of his life.The manufacture of Bowie Knives is now performed by a dwindling number of highly-specialised craftsmen in the city. Master craftsmen in Sheffield are called ‘Little Mesters’, a term that has endured for many years. Little Mesters are usually single specialists who run their own businesses, in their workshops, with skills that have been passed down through the years and through the generations, often from father to son. *Reg Cooper has now retired and will no longer be producing any more knives. This ‘Reg Cooper’ engraved bowie knife is 26 ½ cm in total length. The blade is 14 cm from tip to ricasso, and the polished bone grips measure 10 ½ cm from brass bolster to brass guard with brass pins. The knife has a lovely polished scalloped spine. The bolster and guard are shaped and the grips are brass lined in between the tang. The sheath is thick leather with brass rivets and studs with belt cut outs and ‘Sheffield England’ imprinted. The price includes U.K. delivery. ED 2525.
