15" CIVIL WAR BOWIE KNIFE 202858-CS SZCO These Civil War era Bowie's are hand made in Pakistan using traditional methods and techniques to create authentic replicas that give, strength, feel and rustic look of the originals. Measuring 15" in overall length, this highly functional knife features the classic Bowie design and sports a 10" carbon steel single edge clip point blade. Its walnut finished handle is complemented with a thick polished brass cross-guard which does its duty to protect the hands. The upper guard bends forward at an angle (an S-guard) intended to catch an opponent's blade or provide protection to the owner's hand during parries and corps-a-corps. With a solid full tang construction, the Bowie's hardwood handles are sloped at the pommel for a non-slip grip, and secured to the blade tang with 3 brass pins. This extremely affordable Bowie Knife comes with a beautiful yet rugged black leather stitched belt sheath, equipped with snap secure.
Produced in traditional methods similar to the originals, these replica pieces have the authentic appearance and structure of the time-worn antiques. They are often difficult to distinguish from the expensive genuine articles. This Bowie Knife is a functional piece that can be utilized in real world settings or for real-use activities often found in re-enactment, theater and film, and costume events. This historic Bowie Knife replica is ready for hard use in the field, and beautiful enough to proudly display in any home or office.
This affordable Wood Handled Traditional Styled Bowie looks very much like an authentic piece of Americana, right from the history books. Its new construction makes it a fine piece for any enthusiast to own, carry, use, or display.

Arkansas culturalist and researcher Russell T. Johnson describes the James Black knife in the following manner and at the same time captures the quintessence of the Bowie Knife: "It must be long enough to use as a sword, sharp enough to use as a razor, wide enough to use as a paddle, and heavy enough to use as a hatchet."
