The knife measures 12 ½” overall. One side of the blade is crisply marked by the maker or retailer ‘G.J.

Oxford is a city in, and the county seat of, Lafayette County, Mississippi, United States. Founded in 1837, it was named after the British university city of Oxford in hopes of having the state university located there, which it did successfully attract. Although we can find no record of a cutler named Neill working in the City further research may identify the maker). It has a brass cross guard, ferrule and pommel cap. The chequered Gutta percha hard rubber grip is excellent and undamaged (also indicating American manufacture). The Bowie has its original brown leather open top scabbard.
