15th Century Oak handled Bowie Knife 

Tudor Rose bowie 300

The oak grips on this Sheffield made bowie knife are 15th century from a Yorkshire farmhouse. It’s a beatiful hard wood and of course very rare to obtain wood of this age.

The wood comes from the age of the Tudors in England and the Wars of the Roses. The ancient oak was planking in a Yorkshire farmhouse which will have seen much conflict over the centuries. The Wars of the Roses were a series of Wars fought for control of the Throne of England.

The knife comes with a leather sheath and is handmade in Sheffield. It is accompanied by a letter on handmade paper telling you about the knife and the ancient oak grips. The wood over the centuries has weathered and hardened and is able to stand most things that the user can throw at it.
