We don't handle a lot of Bowies because good ones just don't come up that often. However, this one has all the bells and whistles that make it a premium knife. 16 1/4" overall, this knife has an outstanding condition etched blade with Patriotic Spread-winged American Eagle, Stand of Arms with Cannon, E. Pluribus Unum, Palo Alto and Califorinia Tooth Pick etched on the massive blade. The stag grip is excellent as is the original leather sheath. All markings are clear and strong. Few better when found. Excellent overall.
