VINTAGE 12 INCH LONG MEXICAN BOWIE KNIFE "PLEPE" You are bidding on a vintage 12 inch long Mexican Bowie knife. I have been told that the handle is made out of horn. The knife has been sharpened but is sturdy and nothing is loose on the knife. Stamped on the blade is "Made in Mexico" and the word "Plepe". The knife handle has some chinks on it as can be seen in the pictures. T is a larger chunk in the horn handle just above the hand guard. This chunk measures about 5/16 by 1/4 inch, however nothing is loose on the knife. The blade has some tarnish on it but no rust is anyw on the knife. This knife should clean up very well.
