Victorian English Bowie hunting knife and scabbard by Rodgers and Sons, Sheffield, in excellent condition, approx. 9 1/2 inches long. Knife has stag horn grips, rear grip has a silver oval disc which has not been engraved, cross guard has, it appears, been cut to reduce the cross guard size very common during WW1 when many such bowies were converted as boot and trench knives - bowie shaped 5 inch single edged blade, maker marked at the ricasso, " J. Rodgers & Sons, No.6 Norfolk Street, Sheffield, England" along with a 'GR' and crown. The reverse is stamped with teutonic type cross a stylised star. The area between the blade and cross guard has had a possible repair or strengthening, again common with knives that went to war. Complete with its original brown leather scabbard, integral belt loop and German silver mounts, with all leather and stitching intact. A fine and attractive bowie with some history.
