This is a very nice example of a Mexican Bowie Knife Dagger which dates from the late 19th to early 20th Century. It is mounted with a long clipped point bowie style blade that measures 8 1/8 inches in length by 1 inch at the widest. The blade shows good honest wear with some surface scratches and light staining nevertheless remains in very nice condition. The lovely barrel carved wooden grip also remains healthy with just a little chipping around the ferrule. It is mounted with a brass boat shaped guard and brass fittings that remain nice as well.
The beautiful belt looped leather sheath is accentuated with an interesting woven ball tip and decorative stitch work and has also survived in very healthy condition. Overall the Knife measures 13 1/2 inches in length.
