Click on an image to enlarge
This is an impressive knife! This large size Bowie knife measures 12-1/4th inches in overall length with a massive clip point 7-5/8ths blade. At the base of the blade it has the "B4*ANY" trade mark. This is a sign of the maker marking "J. WARD & CO / SHEFFIELD" which is along the top of the blade. It also has the famous marking of "HUNTERS COMPANION". The edge of the blade has been sharpened somewhere along the line. The firm of F. Ward & Company of Sheffield went into business in 1856 and made blades until they closed in 1883. With the trade marking this knife would have been made in the 1860's. This wonderful knife is still fitted with the original Stag Horn Grips with a German Silver Crossguard. On the side of the grip, it has the stamped name of "A.F. RAMSAY". The soldier's records list several "A. Ramsay" so we don't know which one it cold be. The knife is accompanied by an old but not original sheath. The sheath has the black leather body. This is a large and very impressive weapon with a cool look.
