1 pound 9.3 ounce weight. 9 3/4" broad clipped point blade with narrow brass encasement at the base. The right side with beveled edge and broad fuller. The reverse flat. Additional decoration to the right including diamond and triangle bands and two swastika. (That symbol was used by many civilizations for centuries and in fact, the word derives from Sanskrit.) Oval fighting guard and huge grip carved from horn in the form of a bird/man with finger stalls. Shows good aging with gray patina and undoubtedly dates to the mid-19th century and heyday of the bowie. Original heavy leather scabbard sound and complete with dry surface.
