For several years I have wanted to make a Bowie knife. Finally got around to it. I chose a knife that I consider an American classic and has been pictured in various publications since 1944. It's not signed by the maker, but has what I assume is the owners name and location on the grip. One side is marked L. Kimball and the other is marked Vicksburg. Has an overall length of 14 1/16 inches and a 10 inch clip point blade. The sheath and grip parts are of coin silver. The grip is burl black walnut.
