The venerable Bowie Knife was a popular sidearm among Confederate soldiers; its large, broad blade and clipped point made not only made it a ferocious war knife in close combat, but it also doubled as a superb utility tool for camp duties. This replica has the D-Guard style hilt which gives the knife a great deal of improvements for combat; the brass knuckle guard not only protects the hand – it also doubles as an integrated knuckle duster!
The blade of this recreated Confederate fighting knife is forged from tempered high carbon steel and its thick spine gives it excellent strength and rigidity. The guard is cast from brass and the grip is crafted from carved wood which was polished smooth. Included is a stitched leather sheath. Please note that there is no belt loop on this sheath.
