It got its name from a rather bloody event. As the story goes, in 1827 Colonel James "Jim" Bowie in the midst of gunfire, stabbing and a duel to boot and despite various wounds came out a winner thanks to such a knife. After the story got around, the Bowie knife's popularity grew so dramatically that several manufacturers in Sheffield, England began to mass-produce the sturdy knives for the American market.
Our Sheffield Bowie Knife is an exact replica of the original from this era down to the last detail. With a total length of 33.9 cm, it is among the largest of this model of knife, so large that it could be used in battle as a long knife. The curved clip point blade of carbon steel features a ricasso with a length of 2.4 cm and has four notches on the back for catching opponents' blades in battle. Rounded hardwood handle plates are riveted to the full tang. The nickel-plated cross guard is 8.8 cm long.
A robust, brown sheath of leather with a snap fastener grip safety mechanism is also included.
