Blade measures 8" to top of filework. Clip point blade design with a 3 - 1/2" false edge along spine. Engraved "JWP" on left side ricasso and "USA" on right, meaning unknown. Vacant slot below decorative filework, probably where a guard would have originally sat. Horn scale are affixed by 3 iron pins with silver buttons, top button on left side marked "W.R. McC. / Tomah. Wis.". Tomahawk, Wisconsin, was a city along the Western frontier and was a primary trading spot with the Ojibwe tribe. Ridged brass reinforcement underneath horn scales, silver buttcap with tang on knife visible. Accompanied by a later manufacture sheath embossed with florals. CONDITION: Knife has some surface scratches and spotted darkness but is complete and strong. Crossguard missing. Horn is very good with some surface cracks and a chip on right scale. Silver has tarnished somewhat but has wonderful eye appeal. This is a wonderful bowie probably made in the frontier for a woodsman when such a knife was extremely useful. EMW
