    Victorian British Gentleman’s Wade & Butcher Sheffield Bowie Knife With Spear Point Blade, Blued Flame Effect Decoration Etched Panel Monogram, Antique Ivory Handle & Scabbard. Sn 14641 - 14641

    Wade and Butcher was a tradename of the W & S Butcher Co. Brothers William & Samuel Butcher started the company in Sheffield in the 1820s. Soon after they had a partner named Robert Wade who was the New York based importer of Wade & Butcher knives for America. This was one of the main markets for the company's goods prior to the introduction of the McKinley tariffs of 1891. In 1921 the American company Durham-Duplex bought Wade & Butcher and used it for the production of their safety razors as well as other forms of cutlery. Wade & Butcher ceased production in Sheffield in 1959. This is an excellent Victorian Era spear point Bowie by Wade & Butcher. It measures 11” overall with a 6” spear point bowie blade. The shank ricasso is stamped by the manufacturer ‘Wade & Butcher’. The undamaged steel blade has just light areas of staining consistent with age. The blade has blued decoration on both sides. One side has a central etched panel with stylised monogram (illustrated). The elegantly shaped antique ivory handle is undamaged. It has an ornate German Silver ferrule and cross guard with ball finials. The dagger is complete with brown leather scabbard with German Silver mounts and round locket. All leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14641
