A family heirloom: a late 1920’s Wade & Butcher ‘Boone’ Bowie Hunting Knife and sheath. Date on sheath 1932, 24cm, and sells for at least £450. For us? Priceless.

It was my father’s scout knife, which we think he may have been passed on by an older relative. He wrote on it: “IORWERTH (?) ROBERTS, WOLF PATROL 1ST GLANOGWEN 1932” (Bethesda, NW Wales)

    Hi,
    Where did you find the pricing for the knife? I have the exact same knife I inherited from a neighbour as a kid, and then also used for scouts 🙂
