    Description

    Elegant English Style Bowie Knife and Scabbard. 6½" blade with a clipped point and 4½" false edge. The knife measures about 11½" overall. The ornate sterling silver handle is decorated in alternating patterns of floral scroll and basket-weave borders. The ricasso is marked with a snake coiled in a figure eight pattern, over the words "CAST STEEL". The scabbard is blue morocco with simple floral decoration stamped in gilt. The tip and throat of the scabbard are German silver. An attractive knife with some light scratches and a few trivial nicks on the edge of the blade and with a bit of scuffing on the scabbard, otherwise in very good condition.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
