    Before his death in 1986 Fred James was Sheffield's best known Bowie Knife maker. He began his career in 1935 at Johnson's Portobello Works & continued work at Wostenholm's Washington Works in 1956. In 1971 when the companies of Wostenholm and Rodgers merged, James began his own knife making business (see pages 214-215 of The Sheffield Knife Book By Tweedale). This Fred James Sheffield made Bowie Knife & scabbard are in near mint condition. The knife has polished horn scales secured with steel pins. The brass pommel sections are embossed on both sides with a mythical hybrid Horse / Leopard figure. It has a brass cross guard and the 9” Bowie blade is polished steel with scalloped decoration on the back edge. One side of the blade is etched with elaborate scroll work and wording "America Land Of The Free and The Home Of The Brave". The ricasso is stamped "F. W. James Sheffield". The scabbard is black leather with integral belt loop. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 9266
