For a probably altered made in India, Musso type Bowie knife. This is a big one with a 13 1/4" blade marked SNOWDEN KENTUCKY 1827. Yeah, sure. I used 8/9 oz vege-tan leather and 20 ga brass. 6 cord linen thread, and aged it all. The knife was already poorly aged. Hope you enjoy a look, or maybe a laugh. Could this actually be the elusive sandbar knife?

maybe the Sabine sandbar!! :haha: Nice job though! Sell that one and others in the shop from time to time. Folks like the look! They are Indian but with high carbon steel and will take a wicked edge.
