Svord Von Tempsky Ranger

Svord Von Tempsky Ranger



This replica Ranger Bowie Knife is based on the design than Von Tempsky issued to his company of Forest Rangers in 1863.

Gustavus Ferdinand von Tempsky, adventurer, soldier and artist, learned the benefits of the Bowie knife in California while working in the gold fields. He possessed a fine knife of American manufacture for his own use, but had about 30 bowie knives made to his personal design by a cutler of Shortland St, Auckland. These were issued to the men of No. 2 Company, New Zealand Forest Rangers, under Major von Tempsky's command.

The knives were made from waggon spring steel - being one of the few sources of suitable steel available to blacksmiths in Auckland in 1863.

Svord's version uses high carbon tool steel for it's 6½ inch blade and is supplied with a leather sheath.

  1. a classic knife Review by

  2. Great knifeReview by
    Another peice of amazing quality knife-making from Svord. The quality of handle, blade and sheath is unmatched at this price. As with the Bowie, the blade is capable of the heaviest work, while maintaining a fine edge. The handle is practical and comfortable and the sheath is of the highest quality, although i do find the guard catches on the sheath strap and is awkward to remove. This knocks it back a star for me as it hinders practicality.
    While the quality if great, I wish the blade was a little deeper - the dropped spine is a bit severe for my liking, but then this is part of staying true to the historical design, so no biggie.
    Great knife, then, but I can't say I hold it in the same affection as the bowie!
    As with the bowie, this is a substantial knife and I wish Svord would make a 4" blade knife of similar quality.
