I have for your consideration an Edge Brand Original Texas Hewer Bowie. All Original Texas Hunters were Rad Hewer style Bowies.Stag handles are extremely nice, no cracks or chips. One is darker and one much thicker. Bowie is unused and not sharpened.
All these are blunt on edge which is why I believe a lot of them are sharpened. Also may see some tool marks from where it was made which is common on most post war German knives unless they been highly polished by someone else later. Also has brass patina and green verdigris buildup which is a natural occurring. Do NOT clean or polish this if you want to return it please.
Overall length is 14 5/8 inched. Blade length is 9 5/8. All these are Chrome plated. I do not know what type of steel is underneath as I have never bought a sharpened one or one missing chrome. Most likely carbon underneath but again not sure.
Ive followed all original Texas hunters for quite some time. Rarely see the Edge Brand Type 2 like this. I refer these as type 2 because theses have the steel rivets on the handle which are of higher quality in my opinion.The type 1 as I call it, only has the brass pin in the handle. I will be listing a type 1 unused GC Co soon. A large portion of both type 1+2 Texas hunters are only marked solingen Germany. I will be hopefully listing more unusual German knives soon as Ive collected quite awhile.
