Description
CIKH2186: California Bowie Knife
CAS Hanwei
 
California Bowie Knife. When the forty-niners went overland to the Gold Rush of California, most took along a Bowie knife to use on the trail, and for "social purposes," if the need should arise. Some even had a fancy side etch like this one: "Californian Bowie Knife". Although the original of this knife was made by the I. Lingard company in Sheffield (and not in California!), it's been included in the Historical Bowies Collection because of its use of the marketability of California in the post-Civil War period. Such knives are difficult to find today.

Leather Sheath

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Wood Handles
