Description: Bladesmith Peter Bromley specializes in historical recreations. His work is both creative and historically accurate. This Bowie is a replica of the Butcher/Sheffield Style Dog Bone shown on page 6 of Norm Flayderman's renowned book The Bowie Knife: Unsheathing an American Legend. Knives made by noted cutler William Butcher were made between 1830 and 1837 in Sheffield England. This style features a prominent, long, arched clip point and the characteristic Spanish notches. The flared pommel, nickel silver escutcheon and ferrule, along with the rosewood pinned handle are also indicative of the style.
Peter began by hand forging the blade from 1075 carbon steel and finishing with a satin finished. The clip is brought shy of a fully sharpened edge, whereas the cutting edge is razor sharp. The dog bone handle features nickel silver details including pins, escutcheon, butt plate, and guard. The knife is accompanied by a red leather sheath with nickel silver details. Nice work throughout on a knife that is very true to tradition!
