AUTHENTIC Antique Will & Finck 14 1/4 Dress Bowie Knife with Solid Coin Silver Mounts and a Huge 9 Drop Point Blade with a Coin Silver wash, it has small Spanish notches as a fine firework detail. This the Best of the Best for California Bowies from the Gold Rush era, dates from the 1850s - 1870s and made in San Francisco , Will & Finck is one of the Rarest and most sought after American Bowie Knife makers , they are like Unicorns. I have been very fortunate to have owned 7 of them over the past 45 years and this is the biggest one as it is unusually large for this maker and was no doubt a Custom made knife. The 9 blade is in excellent antique condition retaining most of its Silver plating and shows no signs of resharpening, no nicks and is still razor sharp.
The Hilt on this Bowie is Stunning having all solid Coin Silver mounts and a hexagonal Bovine Bone Handle with golden striped graining. This Beautiful California Bowie is one of the best examples that I have seen. It is correct in every way with no issues and Guaranteed to be Authentic and Old as stated.
