Welcome Home

From my research I think this is the 3rd Variant of the Western brand Bowie, where the guard is marked WESTERN BOULDER / COLO. USA on one side and BOWIE on the other. I was wanting to know more about the knife, like what the steel is, it's approximate value and if it is made in the middle to late 70"s? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mark

Heya Mark!

Up at the *very* top of the page is a search field in the top right corner. If you type in Western Bowie, you'll come up with a ton of photos, comments and info on these knives. Just snooping now. If you jump into the Chat, I can send you some links to stuff.

There is a dating code on those, I believe. Is there a letter stamped into the tang anywhere?

Here is a chat we had a while ago. This may help with what you are looking for. Click HERE!

Thanks for the info Manx.

I did check with one of our Western Bowie collectors and found the answer right here.  He also sent me an email

The gentleman's knife according to my research would be a 3rd variant produced between 1974 and 1977. It's a beautiful knife and would probably fetch somewhere between one and two hundred dollars. That would be my best guess.

Here's a link to what I posted in 2013: http://iknifecollector.com/photo/bowie-trio-5

Thanks for the information Jan.
