This Bowie knife is constructed with thick brass fittings, has a stacked ivory and horn hilt with thin brass plates between the segments.
The blade is a good heavy fighting type with an 8cm back edge.
With this knife is a worn leather sheath and belt suspension as seen in the images.
Likely early to mid 20th centruy and Indian made during British occupation.
