Help Identify This Bowie

Postby knfmn » Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:32 pm

I bought this knife from an elderly man from Ky. He stated he brought it back from California when he retired. H e live around the San Francisco area. It is a huge knife measuring 16 " overall and a 10 1/2 blade. I has the initials M. H. on the blade.

Looks like a repurposed military blade but whatever, the work was done nicely.

Can't help you with the maker, the MH is probably either the maker or the owners initials. How thick is the blade? the reason I ask is the fuller looks really deep, does it have a fuller on both sides? Nice old custom I would guess. ::tu:: Terry
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
