Small Old Spear Point Bowie Knife Hunting Fighting Vintage Sheffield England NR
Small Old Spear Point Bowie Knife Hunting Fighting Vintage Sheffield England NR Measures 10 OAL. Full tang, rat tail, 5 7/8 blade has a spear point, stamped Alfred Williams/Sheffield England. Note steel pommel cap, heavy iron "S" guard, fancy grooved bolster. The smooth cow bone handle has great age patina. There are some tight cracks, more like hairlines, that are not an issue. There is patina, tarnish, pitting. The edge is straight and sharp. I don't think this hilt was how the knife came from the factory. It has been, in my opinion, cleaned and expertly reworked along the way.
I do not know the provenance. I bought the knife as part of a lot, from Bernal Cutlery in San Francisco.
