Western made a LOT of big Bowie type knives, some of them pretty hefty about that size, right up until the Mid 80s sometime.
The retailer I worked for carried Western Knives and when they either went out of business or we just went to cheaper knives for sale they sold them CHEAPLY on clearance and I bought a TON of Western knives that I traded or sold over the years, including one Bowie about that size without engraving that we sold regularly for $49.99 back when $50 was real money.
My current hunting knife is a drop blade Western W84 from the last bunch of "clearance" knives I bought, and it's a damm good drop blade hunter...Western at one time was a QUALITY Knifemaker, just without the following of Case or Kabar or whatever..,
...which when I just went and pulled it from the sheath to see the Model, I found out I never CLEANED it after I cut up my button from last season
Good thing it is STAINLESS, and THANKS for making me go look at it...now I think I will go WASH it....
