Vintage Jim Bowie Pocket Knife
Here’s a beauty that I’ve owned for about 6 years. I got it in Trade from a fella that purchased it about 1990. I think this one was made in the old Olbertz factory when some great knives were still coming out of Germany.
Very unique blade shape but it really feels good when you use the cutout on the Spine of the blade for your thumb.
Very good spring, smooth to open. No Blade play or wobble in any direction. Takes a great edge so I’m assuming its a Carbon steel, but no pits or rust of any kind.
Brass Liners and Shield, NS Bolsters and Springs.
The Tang is stamped one side in Script "Jim Bowie GERMANY" and on the Reverse it reads SOLINGEN GERMANY
All tight and ready to go in your pocket or on your Belt.
