RARE IVORY GRIP ENGLISH & HUBER 1830’S AMERICAN BOWIE KNIFE, EX-WILLIAMSON COLLECTION

02-18484

14.5” overall, 9.5” clip point blade stamped “J. ENGLISH / & HUBERS” on one ricasso, the other “SHEFFIELD WORKS” in an arc over “2”. The number denotes the size of this very early American Bowie knife. Sheffield was always known as the home of great cutlery, so English & Hubers named their firm Sheffield Works even though in Philadelphia. This is very scarce and popular pattern with distinctive wasp-waist silver studded ivory grip with German silver pommel & ferrule.
