A must for every re-enactor or collector of American history. This classic of the American mountain man was big enough to ward off unruly beasts, both on the trail and at the local trading post. The coffin shaped hardwood handle is accented with solid brass furniture.
We have taken a hunter fighter style blade and fit the full profile tang with highly polished, real bone scales held in place with six brass pins. Made with 512 layer Damascus and provided with a heavy leather sheath without any modern snaps that swallows the knife halfway up the grip. This holds the knife firmly when riding or running, but still allows for a fast draw.
This uniquely shaped Mexican Bowie sports a 1085 high carbon steel, hand forged blade, solid brass finger guard and bolster with solid wood handle. Includes top grain leather belt sheath with embossing.
Just like the Early bowie knives, this one is large, tough and sharp! Despite the size of this bowie, the overall weight is only 1-1/2 lbs. Blade has a needle point. Brass strip on spine is an intentional device designed to catch the edge of an attacker's blade during a parry.
