    A MILITARY STYLE BOWIE KNIFE - C. HEINZ, SOUTH CAROLINA.This heavy Bowie knife was made at Columbia, South Carolina by the C. Heinz company and measures just over 12" in length. With an 8" dagger-like blade, the knife has a decidedly military look and feel, especially with the heavy rosewood handle and diamond-shaped rivet at the end. The arched crossguard adds to that look as does the double-stitched rich brown leather sheath fitted with a belt loop. This is a rare Southern-made Bowie knife that, even though in excellent condition, has seen considerable use. From The William Turner Collection, and illustrated in William Albaugh's book on Confederate Edged Weapons.
