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: ACC Bowie Hammer Forged Finish

The good: the blade is solid, sharp, straight and as pictured. The bad: the grip is NOT as pictured. Different shape with squared edges and different butt cap. Returned.

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: ACC Bowie Polished Blade Knife

I bought this in hammer forge finish. Wood in handle fit is worse than most Chinese knives gaps and cracked.
