Click To Enlarge

For your consideration a vintage massive Western model W49 bowie style fixed blade knife & custom sheath.

Selling as used however the knife is in great condition.

The W49 Bowie knife was one of Westerns most popular knives. It was very popular with some of the military during the Viet Nam era.

Was made in Colorado

I had a knifemaker clean and polish the blade.

Rosewood handle scales held on with 3 small pins (small pins were used pre-1977).

Full tang.

Brass S guard.

Mirror polish clip style blade. There are fine pitts on the tip of the blade. the buffing pretty much hides them. Mirror polish wouldn't allow my camera to pick them up. WESTERN BOWIE U.S.A. stamped on one ricasso. If it isn't the original edge it's real close. Very sharp

This knife was made before 1977 as Western started using letters in 1977 starting with A .

The blade is in great condition.

14.5" OAL; 9.5" blade.

A great large heavy duty black leather frog style belt sheath included.
