Primitive Bowie Knife

$89.95

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.

Overview


Early Bowie knives were large, tough and sharp! Despite the size of this Bowie, the overall weight is only 1-1/2 lbs. But don't let the weight fool you; we cut down a 4" sapling in no time and the blade would still shave. Blade has a needle point. The hardwood grip is 5-1/4" and the brass guard is 4-3/4". Brass strip on spine is an intentional device designed to catch the edge of an attacker's blade during a parry.

Just  received  it-excellent  blade,  sharpens well,  seems  to keep  edge  well, fittings  are  tight, suprisingly deft  and  balanced  for the  size, handle  is  not  full tang, I  drilled  a  hole for a lanyard, but  not  unexpected, cutting  tests-this  knife  slashed  through 2' limbs with  ease, no scratches  on  blade  afterward-so  far this seems  like a  well  made  large bowie,  well  worth the  price

This is nothing like the "Primitive Knife" that is sold on Amazon and Ebay. That Primitive is of poor quality with a sheath that is worse. No comparison.

This version of the "Western Bowie" has the best feel out of all the others. It is a huge knife but feels light and handles well. The swedge can be sharpened for the back cut, it does not need to be razor sharp like the main edge as it is the clip point that produces the main damage. This is a great knife if you are looking for an "Iron Mistress" type design. It handles amazingly well for a knife of this size.

Good looking knife. Better looking than any of the knives invented by Rezin Bowie for his psychopathic brother James.
It should make a good utility camp knife and small machette.
