Circa 1840's American Bowie Knife
Circa 1840's American Bowie Knife

This wonderful Bowie is from the Milton Heinzer collection of fine Bowie Knives. It's 10 15/16" spear point blade still exhibits some of it's original polish with very minor spots of pitting. The ivory handle is 4 3/4" and is topped by a german silver pommel. The german silver crossguard  is serrated on both ends. This neat knife comes with it's original scabbard. Just the kind of knife you see pictured stuck in the belt of California '49 er.
