American Frontier Weapons, Clothing & Accessories

The American Frontier is the Westward expansion that started with the English colonies in the early 17th century and ended with the last mainland territories as states in 1912. "Frontier" covers multiple frontiers but the folklore is focused primarily on the 19th century west of the Mississippi River. It covers a lot for us as well, like American frontier weapons, American frontier clothing, and rugged frontier accessories.  Popular attention in the media and entertainment industry is focused on the Western US in the second half of the 19th century, a period sometimes called the Old West, or the Wild West.  Not quite as wild at times as portrayed- farming, mining, lumber and other industries were prominent, but along with everyone else we are guilty of frequently exaggerating the romance and violence of the period. 

We see an interesting mix of the Alamo, Zorro, the Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, Gary Cooper, Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Texas Rangers, Jim Bowie, cattle rustlers, gamblers, gun fighters and outlaws.  The Hatfields and McCoys, Billy the Kidd, the James Gang all seem romantic now.  The frontier transformed Americans and inspired our offerings.  We carry tomahawks, Bowie knives, swords, frontier clothing, holsters, non-firing gun replicas, law enforcement badges, wanted posters, prison gear, accessories, spittoons, bar ware, frontier décor, statues, powder horns and so much more.  The westward frontier defined America and gave us our rugged individualism and self determined drive we have today. 

As the American frontier faded into history, the myths of the West in fiction and film have taken firm hold in the imagination of Americans and foreigners alike.  Whether you side with the romance of it all or the wild ride often portrayed in books, TV and film, we’ve got something interesting that captures the spirit of the American Frontier.   Made from authentic materials, often replicated from originals of the era we have brought the frontier back.

Review of: Hunter's Companion Bowie Knife

I truly like it, there are some light burn marks in discrete areas, but since it's supposed to look old I don't mind one bit :)

Review of: Hunter's Companion Bowie Knife

The knife showed up today, I am very impressed with the fit n' finish, the sheath appears to be high quality leather, the double-stitching is a nice touch. The knife fits in the sheath snugly. I have thoroughly chopped, sliced, and stabbed the box it arrived in to death. The edge still took hair off my arm, so I am happy. I gave the blade a slight flex, side to side, it didn't snap, and it sprang back to true straight.  It has a nice high pitched ring to it when you tap it on the face of the blade with your finger nail, that usually indicates a good heat treat. I probaby won't push this knife to its limits, just because I plan to use it for civil war re-enactments and it is a bit spendy to replace should I damage it 😅

Review of: Texas Bowie Knife

I initially thought this was going to be a flimsy thin bladed knife because of the weight advertised but when I got it I was surprised at how thick the spine was (just shy of 1/4") and the heft of this HUGE blade. I can't keep my hands off of it.I keep saying  (in my head while holding it)  to Crocodile Dundee,"That aint no knife...THIS s a knife". The thing is as long as my whole arm and feels like 3 lbs. instead of 1 lb. 10. ozs. It's more like a short sword...so cool !

Review of: Great Lakes Trade Knife

This is a beastly heavy blade. I like it. The first third of the blade is for good thrust penetration,  The blade also has plenty of belly for slicing and skinning. Did not think much of the sheath at first.  However, after gluing piece of leather inside on the riveted side it tightened up a little.  I can tuck it into the sash of my frock coat and loop my possibles bag strap through it for comfortable carry. It sharpens well and does not dull appreciable even with repeated strikes on bone of deer or bear. Good for black powder hunting for the past 5 years. If you do not mind the weight it is a good out door knife.
