Didn't Johnson live and die before Bowie ever became famous?....

Michael Bane said...

Nope...Johnson died in 1900; Bowie at the Alamo in 1836. Sheffield was probably making Bowie-styled knives by the mid-1800s. Interesting point (point, LOL!!!) on the Johnson bowie -- the spine is much thicker (maybe a quarter inch or a little better) than other Sheffield bowies I've of the time period I've seen. No guard of any king, and the handle has been pretty crudely shaped into finger grips. The scales are stag. Not sure whether they're original or not, but they're eld in place with iron nails rather than brass pins (which would have been the norm.

I've gotten permission to do some more photographs, and I'm going to ask Chuck Staples to make me a duplicate.
