1021G. Gelson Mfg. Co. spear Bowie, bar shield, stag handles, 10'' oal, 6'' blade, saber ground, 5% appx. Blade wear, with leather veneer sheath with frog missing on the throat. Unusual etching on the reverse that is light but reads as close as we can make out ''W. Bufolo''. Excellent
1031Wilkinson & Son Sheffield, stag handled Cowboy Bowie, two etching on the blade, one for Special Appointment to HRH Prince of Wales, the other ''By Royal Warrant Sword Cutlery to the King'' (bottom part of the etch worn away). Sharpened by an idiot, with some deep scratches, rough 7-10% blade wear, scalloped nickel silver guard, original leather sheath but belt look has been torn off.

1051Robinson's Crystalized Cast Steel coffin hilt folder. 1830's-40's cyphered blade of a hunter, dogs, and a pig. Etched ''Southern'' in a banner and boxed, ''Hunting Knife''. Horn handles with a rounded bar escutcheon, 2 blade, 5'' closed, 9'' open. Nice walk and talk. Two rivet cracks on the back handle but amazing condition for a knife this old. Any old Sheffield knives with a designated ''Southern'' theme are extremely rare. Unusual blade shape makes one think it was broken at some point, but take a look in the high res catalog of the top view, and see how much blade fills the knife frame. Taking age into consideration I have to call it excellent, but look at the photos and decide for yourself.
1061Joseph Rodgers Cutlers to His Majesty, No. 6 Norfolk St. Sheffield England is the tang mark but also etched ''Abercrombie & Fitch Co. NY''. 9 1/2'' utility hunter long before there were bushcraft knives of a similar design, wood handles with a center ridge flanked by two finger grooves, slight tapering to the tang, blade overall is excellent, original pouch leather sheath. More modern than many of the Bowies here, but this knife heralds to a time when Hemingway would go into the story to outfit everything he needed for an African safari.
1071Not a knife item unless you make it so, but imagine carrying a handful of fine exhibition knives in felt pouches inside this James Dixon Sheffield metal case nesting inside this heavy duty leather outer case with two types of straps. In measures 5 1/2X 3 1/4 x1 1/4. In reality it is an English Fox Hunter's (the kind with red jackets, helmets, and tall black boots) sandwich case, made to carry on an over the shoulder strap, or with the long strap suspended from a saddle's D ring. Exellent plus condition.
