Mid 1800's Will And Finck Bowie Knife San Francisco Gold Rush And After Maker For Sale

Mid 1800's Will And Finck Bowie Knife San Francisco Gold Rush And After Maker

Offered is a outstanding SF marked Will and Finck bowie knife that recently surfaced in the California Gold Rush town of Downieville on the old 49'er highway. This is the same model knife that is pictured in the excellent reference work:"Knifemakers of Old San Francisco." I just had this listed, but I noticed I had the name spelled wrong in the title and description. This bowie is an exceptional piece of the knife makers craft boasting a excellent balance and weight. The steel blade has natural mossing and patina with both leading edges sharpened at some point in it's lifetime. Regardless, it is a rare knife to find in any condition. Marked on the ricasso: WILL & FINCK SF. CAL.

From my research in the book, and from other sources, the marking and the style of the knife are totally consistent with the genuine article. The hilt is the same, the convex blade style is the same, same blade shape. When found, the knife had the small remnants of a bosuns type knotted handle in a traditional nautical style. I heard from another collector that Will and Finck knives of this era and style often made their way aboard ships sailing from San Fran. Definitely a heavy duty, utilitarian, working knife. Measures: 12.25" overall with a 8.25" blade that is 2" at it's widest point. I believe this to be a very rare and desirable knife.

Payment due within three days of sale close. All sales final. Thanks for looking at my sale and check out my other old military items.
