1974 Smith & Wesson Collector Series knives- Blackie Collins designed.

Recently purchased a 1974 Smith & Wesson Collector Series knife, Based on the Blackie Collins designed model 6030 Survival knife with beautiful embellishments and limited in number. These Blackie Collins knives are my favorite. When I saw this Collector Series knife, I had to bite the bullet to buy it.

1974 Smith & Wesson Limited Edition Collector Series Bowie #498

Based on the success of the S&W model 6010 Bowie knife, S&W offered the Collector Series of knives. A Limited Edition of 1000 serially numbered knives of the Sportsman Line. Custom treatment of these knives by Blackie Collins includes an acid etched game scene on the blade, sculptured Sterling Silver guard and pommel and a hand engraved escutcheon inlaid on the handle. The knife was packaged in a wood presentation case. This knife is the Model 6030 Survival Knife and is numbered 498

Steve,

Comment by Steve Dirgo yesterday

Recently I purchased a S&W box and sheath for model 6029. I am wondering if the 6010 or 6030 Collector Series has this box and sheath included, However I doubt anyone would carry a Collector Series knife but maybe the box and sheath was to complete the set? Anyone know about these, I cannot find any information in my reference books.

The Bowie knife in the Collector Series Model 6010.

My Carry/Use model 6020 Outdoorsman, it has a great feel and balanced.

I have a carry/use S+W Blackie Collins model 6020 Outdoorsman that was experienced before I acquired it. It demands to be used. Mint models should remain so.

The Seki/USA in that time period were under rated.  Recently they seem to have been re-discovered and this time given their due as the "functional art form" they truly are.

Thanks, I am a huge fan of 1970 - 1990's USA and Seki, Japan manufactured knives. A functional Art Form.

Well done sir...And what a beauty!

There's a special place in my heart for the S&W knives in the Survival series as well. I own two - a 6010 Bowie, and a 6020 Outdoorsman - billed as a suitable Bear knife by the dealer. 

While I doubt yours will ever be carried or see the field, it is no less a beautiful specimen and heirloom. I could be your son!  :-)
