    Victorian William Morton & Sons Sheffield Folding Bowie Knife With Buffalo Horn Scales, German Silver ‘TW’ Monogram Escutcheon, German Silver Folding Cross Guard & Open Top Leather Scabbard With ‘J.W’ Monogram. Sn 17628 - 17628

    The date William Morton launched his knife making business is unknown but he is listed as a spring knife maker in Darnall in 1868. William Morton & Sons Sheffield were first listed in directories in 1876 at the old Rockingham Works 175 Rockingham Street, Sheffield as makers of pocket knives and sports knives (see page 231 of the Sheffield Knife Book by Tweedale). This is an excellent Victorian era folding Bowie Knife by William Morton & Sons in its original leather scabbard. The knife's 7 ¼” bowie blade has just light staining consistent with age. The knife measures 11 ¾” overall length when open (8 ¼” length closed). The blade is crisply marked on one side with the manufacturer’s name ‘W. Morton & Sons Sheffield’. It has chequered Buffalo horn scales. One scale is inlaid with German Silver escutcheon engraved with ‘T.W.’ monogram. It has a folding German Silver folding cross guard. The knife is complete with original open top brown leather scabbard which has an integral single leather belt loop. The front of the scabbard is impressed with ‘J.W.’ monogram (the monograms are most likely the initials of the original owner (s). All leather and stitching are intact. The price includes UK Delivery. Sn 17628
