UP FOR AUCTION IS A NICE OLD VINTAGE "EDGE BRAND" ORIGINAL BOWIE KNIFE #443 - SOLINGEN GERMANY - WITH SHEATH.

THIS IS ONE NICE BIG & HEFTY WELL MADE ONE PIECE KNIFE (THRU HANDLE CONSTRUCTION). STAG HANDLES (NO CHIPS OR CRACKS), BRASS BOLSTERS, & BRASS FINGER GUARD. EVERY THING IS NICE, TIGHT, AND SOLID. THE BLADE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION AND I CAN'T TELL THAT IT HAS EVER BEEN SHARPENED. IT WAS COVERED WITH TARNISH WHEN IT CAME TO ME SO I LIGHTLY STEEL WOOLED IT SO I COULD EVAULATE THE CONDITION AND I WOULD SAY THE BLADE IS NEARLY 99%. T IS ONLY LIGHT SURFACE DISCOLORATION THAT IS SUSPECT A COMPETENT CRAFTSMAN COULD POLISH / BUFF OUT AND END UP WITH A HECK OF A KNIFE.

THE SHEATH HAS SOME LIGHT SCUFFS AND THE RIVETS / SNAPS ARE LIGHTLY TARNISHED BUT OVERALL VERY GOOD CONDITION -STAMPED "EDGE BRAND".

MEASUREMENTS: A WHOPPING 13" LONG WITH AN 8" BLADE. WEIGHS IN AT 14 PLUS OUNCES.

DETAILED OUT THIS KNIFE WOULD MAKE A NICE ADDITION TO A COLLECTION OR STRAP IT ON AS IS FOR A GREAT HUNTING KNIFE.
