Manson Sheffield Bowie

Bowie knife marked "Manson Sheffield". The knife measures 9-7/8" overall with 6" spearpoint blade which is nearly 1" wide at thickest point. The blade shows original frostyetching and reads "Americans ask for nothing but what is right and will submit to nothing wrong" surrounded by florals with large "O.K." logo at center. The blade is near excellent and is its full dimensions with nosharpening or polishing and just minor fading, slight spotting and beginning age. The horn gripscales are inlaid with pearl on one side. There are a few losses to the grips, known in the knife trade as "bugbites" which are actually worms born in the horn which burrow out
