What is a Bowie Knife
Knife Shown: Rambo First Blood II Signature Bowie Knife

Ideal for hunting or survival, as well as for utility purposes including heavy duty work like splitting light wood, chopping brush or even hammering nails, along with hunting tasks such as skinning. Most are crafted as fixed blade knives with long, clip points and hardwood or rubber handles. Full size, they often come with a nylon or leather sheath to allow you to keep the knife in a backpack or inside a boot for safety. Rugged, they are strong, hardy and able to withstand harsh weather conditions. Thus, they are popular with hunters, campers and fishermen alike.

Further, many bowie knives offer a classic design making them an ideal collector’s item. This includes Western and cameo style bowie knives, as well as several signature items such as those from Buck Knives’ Teddy Roosevelt or the Zachary Crockett Collector’s Series. Attractively designed, some other special attributes include unique handles made of leather, ivory, antler or ebony woods. And adding to the design, many have etched blades that incorporate wilderness or other artistry in its design. Finally, some modern bowie knives are replicas of knives used in history such as the Ka-Bar USMC used for battle in World War II.
