Fred James Sheffield Custom Made Dirk With Etched Blade & Open Top Leather Scabbard. ED 2513 - ED 2513

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 is a Fred James Sheffield custom made Dirk & scabbard. The knife & scabbard are in very good condition. The knife has a wood hilt. The 4 ½” spear point blade is polished steel with scalloped decoration on the back edge and a line of holes piercing the top edge. One side of the blade has etched foliate decoration (interestingly Fred James’ wife also now deceased etched the blades of her husband’s knives). The ricasso is stamped "F. W. James Sheffield". The knife is 7 ¾” overall length. The open top scabbard is brown leather with front seam and rear belt loop. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2513
