Bowie Knives

The Bowie Knife 
The Bowie Period only lasted about forty years -- from the Sandbar Fight to the end of the Civil War. When pistols got reliable and plentiful the size of the knife shrunk; by the 1870s and 1880s, the Bowie knife was used as a hunting knife much more than as a primary defense arm. 
 
The Bowie was made in a period of hand labor; the industrial revolution had not touched the cutlery trades. All the work on the old knives was by hand, with an artisan's craft skills that were learned during a long apprenticeship to master forgers, grinders and cutlers. 
 
Our Historical Bowie Series demonstrates the evolutionary progression of the knife throughout America. Each piece in the series is constructed with a high-carbon steel blade and nickel finish fittings. The sheath to each knife is Grafted from beautiful leather with meticulous stitch work and a belt frog is included. Each knife is unique in its own right with distinct detailing.
