    This old Bowie is stamped with a SUPERLATIVE ribbon, as well as "UNWIN & RODGERS / -SHEFFIELD-". I have been able to info on each of these, but not all together as they are.

    I'm going to speculate that this is a 19th Century blade that has been rather crudely re-hilted. The hilt is almost certainly not original to the blade...
