Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very cool looking knife. This one is Civil War production because of the maker. The knife measures 13 inches in overall length with the blade making up 8 of those inches. This is the perfect size for up close and personal fighting. The blade has the classic spear point design that so many Civil War era bowie knives had. The left-hand side of the blade base has the clear maker's Mark of "JAMES WESTA / LORD STREET / SHEFFIELD". The Sheffield, England registry shows that James Westa was made from the 1850's into the 1860's. This one has the original high quality mother of pearl handles intact with a beautiful untouched look. It is held in place by two German silver pins. There is a German silver inlay on one side of the grip. They display well as you can see. The cross guard is constructed of pair of German silver pieces. What makes this knife special is that it has the pommel panels that have the classic design of the Union eagle with the snake in her beak. It really makes this one stand out. The knife is accompanied by an original leather sheath. The leather is the high quality Moroccan leather. The original nickel silver top mount and drag to the scabbard are still present as well. This knife was part of the museum like collection of Norm Flayderman. Mr. Flayderman wrote several major works in the arms collecting field including the Bowie Knife Book and his Guide to Antique Arms. This is a very nice looking Civil War Bowie knife in sheath from the Flayderman collection.
