For your consideration is this vintage large Western Bowie knife & sheath Model W49. Selling as used as there is no box or papers. However you can see from the photos the knife hasn’t been used.
The blade looks original.
There were many variations of this knife.
They started making them in the 1960’s on into the 1980′ in Boulder, Colorado.
The W49 was one of the most popular knives carried by some of the troops in the Viet Nam War. I believed they were purchased in the military store PX.
This one has the usual brass “S” shaped guard.
Bright clip point blade. Rosewood handle scales. WESTERN USA W49 B stamped on one tang. The B indicates the knife was made in 1978 Full Tang
Original Western leather dangler belt sheath included. It also is in good condition. All stitching in tact. Some light scuffs.
