Primitive Bowie Knife

Early bowie knives were large, tough, and sharp! Despite the size of the Primitive Bowie Knife, the overall weight is only 1.5 pounds three-sixteenths of an inch thick. But, don't let the weight fool you, we cut down a 4 inch sapling in no time and the blade would still shave. Blade is a full 13 inches long with a needle point. Width of the blade is two and three-eighths inches. The hardwood grip is 5.25 inches and the brass guard is 4.75 inches. Brass strip on spine is an intentional device designed to catch the edge of an attacker's blade during a parry.

Key Features:
Blade is Crafted from Carbon Steel
Comes with a Factory Edge (Can be Further Honed Later)
Features a Brass Strip on the Spine for Parrying and Defense
Hardwood Grip is Simple and Rough, Yet Comfortable to Hold
A Great Collectible or Fine Knife to Carry at Reenactments
