1909 Michigan Bowie

1909 Michigan Bowie


The 1909 Michigan Bowie is very unique, designed in 1907 by Webster Marble right here in Gladstone, Michigan. It is not actually a Sheffield pattern and is closer to what is called a Tex-Mex Bowie of the Alamo period. It is truly an American Pattern. Mr. Marble got it into production in early 1909. The knife was in the Marbles line as their Trailmaker. We have used the exact same pattern blade – we have thickened the guard but retained the aluminum pommel that is very close to the original shape. This Bark River knife is uniquely a Michigan style.
