Title Spear point Bowie knife
Nationality French
Period c 1840

Double-edged 8" (approximately) blade, steel cross guard, nickel silver ferrule and scabbard mount, scabbard of brown calf leather, lower mount missing, solid ebony grip with several small age splits. NB: Blade is peened through to small recessed washer at pommel.

The blade would appear to be an unusual shape, inasmuch as the forte extends for a good one-and-a-half inches from the hilt, with a depression on each side for the thumb.

Good news, my friend, the boot knife has arrived safe and sound. This example will more than fill my collection need.

I should have written sooner, but I did want to let you know that the photos arrived safely and are absolutely fabulous. I could not be happier with them.

Thanks for the excellent service and great photos. I hope we have occasion to do business together again.
