    Description

    C. 1880 Pittsburgh Marked Bowie/Hunting Knife. 13 1/4" overall with 9" blade with 2 3/4" clipped point and a series of grooves cut along the top edge near the base. The blade is 1 3/4" wide at the base. Bone plaque grips with nice patina fastened with three small iron pins. The 3/4" brass bolster is fastened with a copper pin and marked on one side "E. B. S. Co. / Pittsburgh". The knife is accompanied by a rather crude two piece wooden box/scabbard that was originally lined with what appears to be red wool trade cloth. Some splintering/damage on the one end, and possibly held another piece as well, but a fascinating adjunct to this doubtless very scarce knife. Most interesting set.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
