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.
