In 1992 Kershaw commissioned Dan Harrison a talented Texas knife maker to design and produce a limited series of 3 Texas Bowie Knives;

  1.  #4070 - 6" Bowie
  2.  #4071 - 7 1/2" Bowie
  3.  #4072 - 9" Bowie. 

It was reported that around 3,000 of each were produced. This one is number 0430

These Knives were handmade in Texas by Dan Harrison and featured a harness leather sheath made by his wife Carol. Dan Harrison a great designer and knife maker passed away recently, a huge loss to the knife industry.

Blades are made of premium quality tool and diemaker's stainless steel alloy, triple tempered for optimum hardness and edge-holding qualities, before they're double hollow-ground and polished to a mirror finish. Handles are multiple layers of natural hardwood veneers, pressure-laminated and sealed, are cut along the bias and then individually shaped and finished to fit over the massive full-length tang of the blade. High-polished brass guards and pommel complement the intricate woodgrain patterns.

This knife is the model 4071, a 7.5" Bowie. The blade shows no signs of abuse but the knife has handling marks on the finger guard and a crack in the handle finish. The sheath is in excellent condition. The 4071 handles well, a 3/16ths" (4.8mm) blade keeps the weight down, the blade cuts better and it improves the handling.

Low serial number #0430. It's twin 4072 #430 available; Vintage Kershaw 4072: 9" Bowie Knife
