    Description

    Bowie Knife marked Alexander, Sheffield. 11¼" blade with a clipped point and 6" false edge. The knife, a possible 20th Century forgery, measures 16" overall and has horn grip panels mounted with small peened brads, and a German silver handle and cross guard. The reverse ricasso is stamped with a poorly struck maker's mark causing the last few letters of "Alexander" and "Sheffield" to not be visible. The blade has a few scattered areas of pinprick pitting and a few dark spots, otherwise it is in excellent condition.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.
