Drawing inspiration from the iconic Bowie knife, our hunting knife isn't just a tool - it's a testament to the legacy of James Black and the legendary Jim Bowie. Born in the 19th century Arkansas, USA, the Bowie knife has become synonymous with true American craftsmanship and remains a favorite amongst collectors and hunters alike.
Function Meets Heritage While historically revered, our Bowie knife is more than a collectible. Designed with precision, it's a proficient hunter's companion. With a curved top clip bevel for expert skinning and a straight edge towards the guard for precise meat cutting, this knife is a versatile masterpiece. Its design also lends itself to tasks beyond hunting; it's an adept camp knife, ready to take on roles of machetes and hatchets when needed.
