Please read our Terms below for details. When we recently bought a collection of knives from a local estate here in Southern California this very impressive bowie knife stood right out head and shoulder above the others.
It was the only true Bowie in the collection and was by far the most massive knife in the collection. The photos really don't do it justice, nor do they communicate well the size and heft of this piece. It is BIG and BEEFY.
Blade is almost 1/4 thick, hand-forged carbon steel in a classic Bowie profile. Handle is stacked chunks of stag with red and brass spacers, made very much in homage to the great Scagel knives of the early 1900's. Cross-quillon is an extra-large one crafted from german silver. Tang is hidden and anchored at the pommel with a countersunk brass hex nut. The only marking is on the reverse side of its custom leather belt sheath and reads, L.
Scab is, like the knife itself, a very high-quality piece of craftsmanship. I haven't been able to learn anything about this maker. It may have been used a very, very little--hard to be sure--but it hasn't been sharpened.
At 13" long with a 8-5/8" blade it weighs an impressive 19 ounces without the sheath. The true measure of this knife is to be taken by your hand when you pick it up. We promise you will want to go out looking for sandbars in your local river on which to challenge some foe to a duel! A GREAT knife that user or collector alike will readily embrace as a new favorite and an heirloom to be passed down to future generations of knife-loving progeny.
