Summary: this is the Jack Crain PROTOTYPE Noah Smithwick Bowie AND the original hand drawn, hand signed, embossed seal Commercial Proof with embossed seal.

The knife features a 10-5/8" blade and is 16-1/2" overall length. Made from 1/4" blade stock with false (unsharpened) upper clip, full tang construction and a beautiful pinned wood handle. Blade markings and etching as shown in the photos, I've no idea if any other "NOAH SMITHWICK" Bowie knives were made.

Unused, near mint condition. Lined wood display box with key included.


11 photos for review -- this is an incredibly rare Bowie with historical information about Noah Smithwick etched on the back side of the blade. A centerpiece in most every knife collection, a must have for discerning Bowie knife collector. Thanks and good luck.
