Bell Bowie knife from the Paul Chen/Hanwei Historical Bowies Collection. High carbon steel blade. Jigged horn handle with nickel silver guard and pommel. Brown leather belt sheath with nickel silver tip. Replica of a bowie knife made by Sam Bell, a cutler and silversmith from Knoxville, TN. Bell was a cutler and silversmith first in Tennessee, then in San Antonio, Texas. He was mayor of Knoxville, and later made some silver spurs for Sam Houston. It's a real rib-tickler, long and lean like Tennessee, and big enough for a Texan! Come with a presentation/display case.
