    Description

    Three Handsome Forged Bowie Knives, all unmarked and ca. 1870s. All show signs of real use as hunting and skinning knives, and all are formidable weapons. a. Long (16 ½") staghorn gripped knife with steel fittings and a 5 ½" sharply-honed false edge on an almost 11" blade. b. Big knife with a slightly curved back and trailing point, a bone handle with an iron bolster and single rivet. Overall 15-3/8" with 10" blade. c. Stag- handled knife with clip point blade, 3 ½" sharpened false edge and pronounced finger guard. The pommel and front bolster appear to have been originally japanned. All three knives are tight, but all show overall rust and some pitting.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
