Do not let a name like the Primitive Bowie Knife fool you into thinking this knife is inferior to others, because it is not. This knife is simple, rugged, and brutally effective – everything that a good Bowie knife should be. This Bowie knife is a perfect example of a classic Bowie knife, featuring a broad, heavy blade that looks like it was made for combat. The clip point style blade comes to a sharp point, and the back swedge of the clipped point can easily be sharpened to deliver back-cuts. The leading edge of the knife comes with a factory edge that can also be honed to greater sharpness at a later date. The brass strip on the spine of the blade is a classic addition that is perfect for parrying and catching an attackers blade, while the brass guard is perfect for keeping an opponents blade from slipping down onto your fingers. The hardwood grip is blissfully simple, and it is likely this feature that gives the knife its name, given that it looks like a piece of roughly carved wood. If you are looking for a Bowie knife that replicates the earliest styles of knife, then you are looking for this Primitive Bowie Knife. This blade is large and tough, making it a great display and conversation piece for any collection of knives, as well as a great knife to keep at your side whenever you head out into the wild.
