Wade & Butcher, Sheffield Published Sheffield Exhibition Knife "THE TEXAS SPORTSMAN KNIFE." BOWIE

circa 1819-1860'S,

Measures: 8", 3 7/8' flat ground severe clip blade, with an extensively fluted and file worked spine, blade marked THE TEXAS SPORTSMAN KNIFE & "WADE & BUTCHER, SHEFFIELD."

Guardless, with a nickel silver ferrule about long, with nickel silver bar shield. Sambar stag scales, well matched, fastened by four (4) pins, no cracks or chips. Folding fluted spiral corkscrew, & triangular leather punch. Slide out tools, folding thumb lancet, a long pricker and a pair of tweezers. Original tube black leather sheath, beaded nickel silver throat and scalloped nickel silver tip. This knife is pictured on p.233 of 'SHEFFIELD EXHIBITION KNIVES.' The dimensions and the slide outs are different from the book description. This knife is an inch shorter than the one described in the book, and this one has three side outs, rather than just one as described in the book. This is the knife in the book, photo of the stag proves it. (And-stag don't lie!). A beautiful very rare Sheffield Exhibition Knife.
