Looking to be armed with a trusty hunting knife for your next gruelling conquest? Choose a bowie knife from our extensive selection today!
The bowie knife is a fixed blade knife named after James Bowie – a 19th century American pioneer who played a prominent role in the Texas Revolution. Among the other details of his colourful life (he spent time as a solder, a smuggler, a slave trader and land speculator) he was also known for his ability as a knife fighter, emerging as the victor of the legendary Sandbar Fight in Mississippi. As the legend goes, what began as a duel (it should be noted that Bowie was not one of the duellers) became a fully fledged brawl. Bowie, who had been shot and stabbed during the course of this event, managed to kill the sheriff of Rapides Parish with a large knife. That’s a pretty formidable namesake!
Thebowie knifecan be identified by a number of distinctive design features. It’s a large sheath knifefeaturing a crossguard and a clip point.The blade should be at least 6 inches long, however many possess longer blades. Due to the distinctive style and the shape of the blade, they are practical to use for camping, hunting and as weapons (as Bowie himself is said to have so amply proven). They remain popular with hunters and sportspeople today.
