This large Bowie knife has a thick-spined and robust blade of tempered 5160 high carbon steel. The differentially-hardened blade has a softer spine and body of 22-25 HRC and 45-46 HRC respectively. The edge has a hardness of 58-60 HRC. This differential hardening optimizes the blade so that it will have a hard edge that will not dull easily and a softer body and spine that will impart some flex and shock absorption to the blade. The false edge is unsharpened. The guard and pommel are of steel and the grip is composed of two carved halves of polished buffalo horn riveted to the thick blade tang.

The scabbard is made from pinewood fitted together with ‘’Laha’’ glue and overlaid with black leather. It has a protective steel chape, a leather belt loop and a buttoned retaining strap.

This ‘’serious-business’’ Bowie Knife with its large blade and guard make it more of a short sword for the woodsman and survivalist than being merely a large knife. The thick blade spine ensures that it chops and hacks with force. The thick blade tapers to a vicious tip that is well capable of creating a deep and wide thrust wound with little force. The blade is large and robust enough that this Bowie is not only suited to personal defense, but it can be used for numerous utility camp duties as well.
