Fine and scarce, massive Jean Tanazacq early Natchez Bowie knife ARDENNLAME era, brass double guard, one piece walnut grip and matching brass butt cap. 11-3/8-inch clipped point blade, 2- 1/8 inch at its widest point, from 3/8-inch steel stock. Brass guard is 5-1/2" in length. Large brass butt cap. Ricasso stamped with wild boar marking on obverse, reverse stamped with map of France. Contained in original brown leather scabbard with embedded wild boar carving. The Natchez Bowie can be seen in Tanazacq's original 1980 ARDENNLAME period advertising with the large letter "B." The model offered here is one of the very first such knife ever produced. A total of 20 Bowies were made during a span of 40 years (1980-2020), however, only 2 were constructed between 1980 thru 1984 when the two markings were availbale( Map of France and wild boar) after that such was discontinued as only the wwild boar logo appeared on all others blades . A true scarcity in today's marketplace as very few Natchez Bowie have resurfaced to date, since these are seldom seen today. The scarcity of this model is vouched by the two rare markings on the blade. Knife is in a gorgeous condition, with few marks on guard but blade is flawless. The odds in locating such specimen today similar as the one I am offering are slim to none. The original 1980 advertisement is included with the knife(see picture # 3).
