    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    This knife was made by Geo. Wostenholm & Sons of Sheffield approximately late 1800's to early 1900's.
    In this condition, I would not pay more than $150-$200

    It's a George Wostenholm IXL. clip point Bowie made at the Washington works in Sheffield U.K. These were produced from the 1880's onwards mainly for export to America. The sheath indicates it's date as around the 1960's, condition is rough, i'd say $150-$200 max.

    Regards, Ned.

    You are very welcome and thank you for voicing your appreciation for the help.
    Most who are new members and come here looking for information are never heard from again after receiving help.
