Early Bowie knives were large, tough and sharp! Despite the size of this Bowie, the overall weight is only 1-1/2 lbs. But don't let the weight fool you; we cut down a 4" sapling in no time and the blade would still shave. Blade has a needle point. The hardwood grip is 5-1/4" and the brass guard is 4-3/4". Brass strip on spine is an intentional device designed to catch the edge of an attacker's blade during a parry. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Cannot use Paypal as payment option.

Just received it-excellent blade, sharpens well, seems to keep edge well, fittings are tight, suprisingly deft and balanced for the size, handle is not full tang, I drilled a hole for a lanyard, but not unexpected, cutting tests-this knife slashed through 2' limbs with ease, no scratches on blade afterward-so far this seems like a well made large bowie, well worth the price

This is nothing like the "Primitive Knife" that is sold on Amazon and Ebay. That Primitive is of poor quality with a sheath that is worse. No comparison. This version of the "Western Bowie" has the best feel out of all the others. It is a huge knife but feels light and handles well. The swedge can be sharpened for the back cut, it does not need to be razor sharp like the main edge as it is the clip point that produces the main damage. This is a great knife if you are looking for an "Iron Mistress" type design. It handles amazingly well for a knife of this size.

Good looking knife. Better looking than any of the knives invented by Rezin Bowie for his psychopathic brother James. It should make a good utility camp knife and small machette.
