This Khyber Bowie fuses the size and styling of the famously fierce Khyber fighting knife with the characteristic clipped point of the dependable Bowie knife. Named for the tribesmen of the Khyber Pass which borders Pakistan and Afghanistan, the Khyber Knife often has a length approaching that of a short sword and its long cutting edge and acute point made it a fast and vicious cut and thrust weapon designed for long cuts and deep punctures through thick layers of cloth. This example borrows the clipped point of a Bowie to further optimize the blade for piercing capability.
The blade of this Khyber Bowie is made from stainless steel and its durable full-tang hilt construction is comprised of grip scales of polished horn and bolsters of steel which are riveted directly to the thick blade tang. The false edge of the blade is unsharpened. A pre-drilled hole at the end of the grip readily accommodates a lanyard. Included with the dagger is a sheath of stitched leather.
