Bowie Knives

James Bowie created a legend about himself and the knife he used in a hand-to-hand fight in Mississippi in 1827. What that knife looked like was soon lost, but the legend continued to grow. Bowie knives were in high demand, worn at the sides of members of Congress as well as barroom trash. The authentic Bowies by Windlass Steelcrafts are from America's past and hand forged from well-tempered steel to take and hold a razor edge. Most come with a leather sheath. Find great Bowies from Cold Steel and other great knife makers too!

Review of: 1917 Frontier Bowie Knife

I have not been impressed with Cold Steel’s fit and finish in previous purchases, so held back from snatching up this beautiful blade when I first saw it in the catalog.  It couldn’t possibly be this good in real life . . .  I held out for over a year before telling myself that I could. “always send it back” if it didn’t meet my expectations.  Well out of the box it blew my expectations into next week!  Elegant curve with a substantial false edge, its heft felt solid in my hand while still being ‘wieldy’.  The serpentine guard is generous enough for my hand (even gloved) with no cramping or hot spots.  The bluing is really nice and increases the aesthetic value of the knife.  The sheath is solid and the locking belt frog works as it’s intended.  Why did I wait so long?  Now I’ll take it to my favorite whetter; Seattle Knife Sharpening, for an edge that is a work of art.

Review of: 1917 Frontier Bowie Knife

Outstanding Bowie.  Can get a razor edge and the grip is strong and solid in the hand.  Just a classic.  A very good chopper and all around cutter as would be expected.  High quality for the price.  Highly recommend.

Review of: 1917 Frontier Bowie Knife

Used extensively while camping in mostly pine forest.  Excellent for shaving wood for fires.  Great in baton splitting wood.  Sharp point for drilling into leather and pieces of wood.  Recommend wearing on outside of pack as it can be a bit heavy on belt for long hikes.

Review of: United Cutlery Honshu Boshin Bowie Knife With Sheath

This is one of my favorite Bowie knives! Out of the box it is sharp as a razor. And the look and feel in your hand is awesome. It has a rubber type handle that will not move your hand when you are got at it on a log or what ever it my be. I love it!! Just one thing on the sheath the right side the leather trends are coming lose. Trying to figure out a fix. Or my be the company will read this and send a new one. That would be awesome. But if I were you for the price this is one bad ass cool as hell looking Bowie Knife! GET IT FOR SURE. You will not be sorry.. MATT THE OUTDOORS MAN..
