Almost sword-like in its cutting and thrusting performance, the Frontier Bowie features a wide, wickedly keen hand-sharpened blade with a generous clip and huge fuller. Made from 1055 Carbon Steel, it is heat treated to a hard spring temper and beautifully blued to a lustrous finish. Its blade is both long and stiff enough to oppose even much larger weapons, while wide and sharp enough to make the most of every opportunity to cut, thrust and deliver a "palpable hit".

The Frontier Bowies handle is a perfect accompaniment to its battle-ready blade. Its big "S" shaped guard offers excellent hand protection while the slim, flat profile stops it from twisting in your hand and keeps your edge alignment true even in the heat of combat. Its modified pistol grip also keeps the knife locked safely in your hand even when utilizing a palm reinforced grip for extended reach and leverage in the thrust.

Very good, functional knife. I like the authentic look and feel of the knife. I have been using an authentic Panawal from Nepal when I need a functional hunting knife for large animals. I will take the Bowie with me on my next hunting trip back to South Africa.

This knife is fantastic! I wish there was a way to secure the knife in the scabbard, but that was easily remedied with a piece of black elastic

Great piece! Good quality, well made and worth the price. Had great balance and a keen edge.
