Hi Michael - 

Oooooooo....a buckle dagger....sweet! I love these guys!  Unfortunately I can't speak with any real authority on this, other than to say your belt is for a 34 inch waist. :-D (sizes are waist plus 2 inches - so your 36 is for a 34 inch waist)

I did find this one, however, from Arizona Custom Knives that sold for $195.00. Several of them sold here on this site - this one looks close to yours.

Not sure when it sold, but it was somewhat recent, as it was added in April of 2019. Does this description match yours? 

"This is a belt buckle knife by Bowen USA. Has a double edged dagger blade, .179" blade stock and 1.022" blade depth, integral construction. Comes with a 34" black leather belt. Good condition overall."

In addition (with no surprise) here is an earlier iKC thread on Bowen Knife company and their belt knives. Do go and take a look - it's worth the read. https://iknifecollector.com/forum/topics/bowen-belt-buckle-knife

In my 5 minutes to look up stuff on Bowen Knives, I see there have been plenty of them made, lots for sale, and they all seem to get a pretty good price. I also found a few places currently in business that make Bowen replacement belts - assuming of course you already have the knife. The belts, although new, are getting almost as much as the knife itself!

I hope this helps. 

Thank you Lars for all that great info!!!

Cool find.

I remember those being hot items in my younger days.

I can also see me trying to hold up my pants, these days, if I had to actually pull one out.
