Circa: 1890's
Condition: Good++
Manufacturer: Ezra F. Bowman & Co. Lancaster PA. U.S.A.

This is a rare graver's (engraving) chisel The metal sleeve is marked "Guaranteed Ezra F. Bowman & Co. Lancaster PA. Pat.Mar.12.1889". The handle is a dark tropical type wood, maybe ebony, or dark cocobolo. The sleeve on the handle is adjustable to hold the shank or stem part of the chisel in a slot in the handle by positioning the sleeve to grasp the chisel stem. There is a very nice chisel included also, a type which we have seen few of. The bottom of the chisel has a very slight inset gouge, in effect would engrave a double parallel lines with a hump or radius standing in the center on the steel being engraved, otherwise it is .06" wide at the cutting edge, and tapers to a width of .10" at the top of the chisel as near as I can measure to the cutting edge. The chisel part alone is about 3" long. The chisel is marked "DAMASCUS 60" could be 09, and also I see "11" mark near the other number. The chisel part included has a fairly short stem, or I guess I should say, the handle can fit a stem of much long length into the slot in the handle, as the slot is about 2.3" long inside the handle for various stems to fit into. I believe the sleeve is silver or silver plated steel, and it has nice engraving on it, and a nice decorative design on it also. The wood on the handle and the sleeve are all in very good condition, no crack, very little wear. I believe that handle was designed to be a universal chisel holder/handle, about to quickly engage or disengage with any of various styles and brand names of chisel into a comfortable holder that grips the chisels as well as any custom fitted chisel handle. I am not sure, but I would suspect this handle originally was sold along with a set of graver's chisel in a chisel tool roll, but I have not seen a tool roll with the Bowman name on it as of today, still looking though. Don't miss out on this one, it is the first we have ever seen, and the first we have offered for sale!
