"I love the old Western Cutlery knives. I had about 125 of them at one time but have about sold out...I've hoarded a W-47 and W-49 in their orig. boxes.. I figure them to be about the same quality of the older Schrades, Boker, K-Bar etc. …"

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, MarkSee More
