Bowie Knives and Fighters
US Army Colonel James Bowie is credited with inventing this distinctive fighting knife in 1828. It has a "False Edge", a sharp section on the top of the blade near the point, which is meant to be used in the up-stroke, like a sabre. These big knives are popular as a bush or hunting knife, or as a companion to a cowboy's "six-shooter".
Forged from 5160 tool steel, with zebra wood handle and steel pommel, pins and guard.
5160 blade, brass guard and pommel. The stag horn is from a BC white tail deer.
