Quite simply one of the most famous D. E. Henry Bowies ever made, first coming to light in a 1970's edition of William Cassidy's Knife Digest, this knife was illustrated in an article with legendary novelist James Jones, author of such WWII classics as ''From Here to Eternity'' and ''The Thin Red Line.'' This stag handled Bowie has ''Jas. Jones'' engraved in an escutcheon on the reverse side, and the tang is marked with a dog and the number 1 on the tang. Matched stag handles, coffin shaped hilt, straight guard, and extraordinary craftsmanship that was typical of D. E. Henry. 16 1/2'' oal, 11'' blade, some very light cleanable tarnish on the thick tang and a single spider near the tip of the blade. Otherwise mint. Sheath has a couple of dents and indention where someone wrote #52 (no ink, just the indention).
