Fantastic large custom fancy art knife cased set handmade by master knifemaker Howard Hill of Columbus, Ohio! Features two interchangeable mirror polished and engraved stainless steel blades, octagonal abalone handle with gold-plated and extensively engraved frame, all presented in a large, custom, heavy wood display case. The Persuader is Hill's signature knife, and although several were made with different handle designs, I was told by the original owner that this cased set with two blades is one-of-a-kind!The Bowie knife measures about 16-1/2" long overall with about a 10-1/2" blade. The dagger blade measures about 11-3/4 long. The knob at the end of the handle twists off and there are tools inside the hollow handle for changing the blades. According to the provenance card with the set, the engraving was done by Harry Limings of Sunbury, Ohio and the entire set required about 6 months to create! The set comes in a heavy custom-fitted wooden display case that measures about 22-1/2" long by 11-1/4" deep by 3-1/4 high and the entire set in the case weighs over 13 pounds! The wood case has some light marks on the top.
Aside from that, everything is in excellent condition. This is a true heirloom or museum quality collectible art knife set! Stunningly impressive in size, quality, and craftsmanship - a true feast for the eyes everywhere you look! A unique and special set which would make an excellent addition to any serious knife collection.
