These two are my all time favorites.
A Blacksmith made Bowie, Age unknown.
The name Foster is Faintly visible on the Ricasso.
This is a Rather Large Knife,
16 Inches long with a full 10 inches of Blade.
Blade is 3/8ths of an inch thick and 4 inches wide at the rearmost part of the cutting edge just forward of the Guard.
I have used it as a Camp knife, and it holds an edge very well, even when used to chop wood.
The other is a Bit more Handy at 13 inches, with 8 inches of Blade.
I am Not Sure what the proper term would be as far as design.
This Knife has Razor edges on Both the Primary cutting edge, and on the top edge of the spear point as well.
I have used this as a Hunting knife and it has held its edges very well also.
I was told it was made from and Old Wagon Spring, and that seems likely to me, given its appearance.
It bears no markings of any sort.
The Handle is Stag, obviously, at least to me, from some sort of Carving knife.
The sheath is crude but very strongly made, and
has a rather unusual design that requires you to tilt the knife away from your hip in order to withdraw it.
It cannot fall out even when inverted.
