Offered here is a full-size VINTAGE OLSEN SOLINGEN GERMANY HUNTING SKINNING BOWIE KNIFE. This model features a 8 inch blade which is generally the more sought after knife. It has not been cleaned up or buffed out but, instead left essentially as I found it.
There is some noticeable looseness with the slabs in stag handle which can be addressed by the new owner but I have not made any attempt to change it. I have tried to show some of this in a photo. If you have a serious interest in the knife please ask me to clarify the issue in further detail.
With a knife such as this I do not wish to change the originality of it. Sometimes these mid-20th century Solingen Bowie knives are not considered worthy of collectible status but I have treated this with the belief that they are. This knife does come with a non-original sheath. Here is an opportunity to own one of these old Bowies which are becoming increasingly hard to locate.
