Vintage Kershaw 4072 9” Bowie Knife,

In 1992 commissioned by Kershaw, Dan Harrison, a Texas Knifemaker designed and produced a limited series of 3 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, a low production number.

These Knives were handmade in Texas by Dan Harrison and featured a harness leather sheath made by his wife Carol. 

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 is how a Bowie Knife should look and perform. The 3/16th blade delivers excellent cutting performance without the bulk of a 1/4" blade.

This knife is the largest Bowie of the series; the 4072, a 9” Bowie. This knife is listed used and could have handling marks, the blade appears untouched. Judge the condition from the photos. Low serial number #0430. 

Additional Jumbo knives: Jumbo Blades over 7.6"
