This 38 cm long bowie knife was made by the renewed Joseph & Rodgers Cutlery Company under the Reign of George V (1910-1936). Based on the tang which reports the No 6 Norfolk St. address that was sold in 1929 I can argue that the knife won’t date after 1930. 25,3 spare point blade, which appears to be full. The blade has its original polish and doesn’t show sharpening marks, some natural pitting, mostly near the tang, due to age. Front ricasso*G. crown R, Joseph Rodgers & Sons, No.6 Norfolk St. Sheffield England*. The back with the famous Star and Maltese cross mark registered by Rodgers in 1764. The blade is topped with a nice deer stag horn handle with a thick solid oval German silver double guard and oval German silver shield for owner’s initials or name. Four steel pins or rivets secure the grips to the hilt. No chips or cracks. Guard is 72 mm long by 12 mm wide at the widest and is clean and tight. Sheath, or scabbard, is constructed of brown leather. Scabbard measures 29 cm long 4,5 cm wide and features a belt loop. The brown leather sheath shows minor use and wear, with moderate surface flaking and some edge scuffing visible but no tears or rips. Mounted with German silver collar and tip. The tip featuring few dents. The overall conditions of the bowie knife and scabbard are excellent. PRICE UPON REQUEST
