The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Firstly, thanks for the warm welcome. I'll try to contribute however I can. One of the emails I got said to post something, so I'm going to jump right in, here goes! i'm posting a photo of what looks to be a small Bowie. I've had for some 50 years. I'm sure it's vintage or can I upgrade it to antique? Found in abandoned house in Indiana. Sure looks handmade & the copper guard & rivets looked unusual to me. Since the knife has no markings of any kind that I can find identification will be all but impossible. I'm in hopes that someone might notice something they could identify as being from the north, south, east or west & perhaps a time frame of when it may have been made. I have several more photos available or I would be happy to take any requests.
