There are two versions of this knife with identical blade stampings, BOWIE on one side and WESTERN BOULDER COLO. USA on the other side.The first version made in 1964 (THIS KNIFE) has a brushed satin finish. The second version made in 1965 has a highly polished finished.
Knives are meant to be taken care of so I gave this a good cleaning, the knife turned out very nice. The blade is very clean with a couple of pepper marks on one side, I didn't want to get to aggressive with the cleaning.
The guard is tight and there are no scratches or nicks in the handle. The item "1960'S WESTERN BOULDER, COLO.
