Description

Edwardian 1901-1910 Joseph Rodgers & Sons Ebony Handled Bowie Knife & Black Leather Sheath. Sn 13888 - 13888

This is a beautifully marked bowie knife by the premier Sheffield knife maker of the Victorian and Edwardian era. It is clearly marked on one side of the 5 3/4" long polished blade with "E.R." and a Crown over "J. Rodgers & Sons, 6 Norfolk Street, Sheffield, England" denoting manufacture in the Edwardian era of 1901-1910. The other side of the blade carries the corporate mark of an asterisk and a Maltese Cross. The grips are black ebony, chequered and held in place by one pin. The scabbard is top quality black leather with a belt loop riveted to the back. These knives were often carried by officers in WW1. (See 'The Sheffield Knife Book' by Geoffrey Tweedale page 257-265 and Ron Flooks ' British & Commonwealth Military Knives' pages 23, plate 29 for a WW1 knife of a similar style with a knuckleduster). A top quality knife in excellent condition by a premier Sheffield maker. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13888
