Fred James Sheffield Hand Made 'I*XL Canadian Hunting Knife' Bowie With Etched Blade, Ivorine Grips With Mother Of Pearl Inlays & Sheath. Sn 11960 - 11960

Before his death in 1986 Fred James was one of Sheffield's best known Bowie Knife makers. 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 handmade Fred James 'Canadian Hunting Knife' is in excellent condition. The knife has Ivorine scales with Mother of Pearl roundel inlays and brass cross guard with clipped edge decoration. The deep swept 6” Bowie blade has a tooled back edge and is etched on one side with banner containing wording ‘The Real I*XL Knife’ above bold lettering ‘Canadian Hunting Knife'. The ricasso is stamped "F.W James Sheffield". The Bowie is 10 ½” overall length. The Bowie is complete with a black leather sheath which has tooled decoration to the front. The sheath has an integral belt hanging loop and retaining strap with press stud fastener. The price for this impressive Fred James Bowie with sheath includes UK delivery. Sn 11960
