Is this unique "EAGLE HEAD" Mexico Bowie Knife with jade inlay scales, and embossed blade. The impressive knife measures almost. 14 long overall, with a lot of character and attention to details!The style of the eagle head is probably AZTEC or INCA inspired. This vintage Mexican fixed blade has a bright engraved / embossed blade with custom details. The antique handle is secured with 2 metal pins and inlaid into the aluminum castings. The eagle head pommel features attention to details that includes intricate feather engravings and a beak. This collectible old knife is probably from the 1960's era. The " MEXICO" steel blade has raised lettering and Spanish style designs on both sides. Also, a companion leather sheath is included.
Both the fixed blade fighting/hunting bowie, and the leather sheath are in very good condition for their age. The overall length is almost. T he blade measures approx: 8 1/2.
Aluminum finger guard has No movement. Also, the Aztec or Inca style. Pommel is very tight with NO movement.The detailed vintage handle I believe is jade. The antique handle shows beautiful old color tones, variation of swirls, age lines and patina. This "one of a kind" handle has lot of character and desirable patina that can only be found with handcrafted knives. Please view photos for details. The bright steel blade on this survival/fighting Bowie has raised embossed Spanish lettering. One side of the embossed blade features the image of a mountain and plants. The reflective blade has some carbon aging specks and a nice patina. This vintage blade appears straight with a pointed tip, and features a nice false top edge. THE OTHER SIDE of the blade is stamped. Can tell how old it is because it has a bottle cap opener built in the blade. How long has it been since we needed one of those? (Please view photos for details). This handcrafted MEXICO Bowie feels well balanced, heavy , and solid when held in you hand.
A black leather sheath (or case) is included and has: intact stitching, belt slot, 2 metal rivets, and a stiff throat. The "hand-crafted" leather sheath holds the custom knife securely. The sheath shows some wear and usage, but is in very good condition, for it's age.
