|CSA D-GUARD BOWIE KNIFE 318 by Denix
Over the years many knives have been called Bowie knives and the term has almost become a generic term for any large sheath knife. During the early days of the American Civil War Confederate soldiers carried immense knives called D-Guard Bowie knives. Many of these knives could have qualified as short swords and were often made at home from old saw or scythe blades. Popular in the Confederacy during the Civil War for its all-purpose capabilities, the D-Guard Bowie chopped branches, split logs, sliced saplings and even had its way with a Yankee or two. Re-enactors use it to dig cannon emplacements!
This replica Confederate D-Guard Bowie features a 10-1/4" carbon steel blade that comes factory dull and can be finely sharpened to meet personal specifications and use. The classic D shaped Guard is in brass and encloses a beautiful shapen contoured wooden handle that allows for a comfortable and secure grip. The blade is stamped with a deep embossed "CSA" emblem in relief. Comes complete with a brown leather stitched Scabbard for carry and safe keeping.
