Big Jim Musso Bowie; Custom designed by Dbad & made by Khukuri House


Large western style knives are known as Bowie knives. This isn’t because of a blade shape or place of origin, it’s because of history’s most famous knife fighter, James Bowie.  He carried a large fighting knife everywhere from the western plains all the way to the Alamo where he eventually died in a war against Mexico. He used a large blade is his legendary Sandbar fight and for a while carried what’s often known simply as the “Musso Bowie”, named after it’s assumed creator. The dbad Big Jim Bowie pays homage to that knife.

 

What’s so special about the blade?
Starting with a quarter inch thick of blackened 5160 steel, the hand hammered blade stretches an imposing 14 inches. It has a long clip point with an unsharpened swedge creating a strong fighting tip. At 2.75” wide, the blade may be the widest in your collection. Across it’s curved spine, you will see an equally curved polished steel spine guard, welded on for ultimate strength and protection. 

 

Why use micarta?
The in house, hand made micarta replaces the traditional wood grip. It allows for an amazing non slip grip in nearly any weather conditions. 

 

What is the grip?
A 6” full tang grip means you will have plenty of room for any hand size and a sense of security in it’s strength that most versions don’t offer. The scale choice brings this knife into a modern era it deserves to to be wielded in. The polished S-guard will lock your hand tightly at the front of the grip offering protection from the sharp edge of your knife, or your enemies.

 

What's the sheath?
Big Jim comes with a Sheath made from a high-quality Kydex sheet. It is a lightweight, waterproof, and durable material.

Wow

How to say ? This knife is a beast...I have been a knife lover for over 40 years. I have never seen a blade like this with such intensity. It's a knife made to last and endure the worst. A strong blade for tough times. Yes, the knife is handmade, it has tool marks, but it is a raw finish. And this blade, I don't know how to say... it seems alive. The fit of the handle and the profile of the blade are perfect. The craftsman ARJUN BARAILY is an artist. Respect. DBAB's design is extraordinary. The knife is perfectly balanced. We don't feel its 960 grams. I have also never had such a comfortable grip. Well done.

Outstanding Knife Makers!!!

I received the Dbad Musso Bowie that I ordered from this web site as well as the Dbad Preacher that I ordered from Ebay together in the same package. Never expected that to happen and your customer service is absolutely the best!!! Both of these knives have gone above and way beyond my expectations for quality and cutting ability. The sheer size of the Musso Bowie has to be seen in person to be appreciated as the pictures really doesn't do it justice. It is just absolutely massive. That being said the blade is still light enough to be very lively in the hand for jab or snap cuts. If you were to carry this on any solo backpacking foray, Man or Woman, it would no doubt give great pause to any nefarious person who didn't have good intentions that you met on the trail. Trust me, once you were to draw it out of its sheath and visible to your assailant, it would chill the blood in their veins. It comes razor sharp and will shred paper all day long. You can process wood with it and make feather sticks as well as baton some medium sized rounds for fire preparation with no problems at all but in all honesty, it wasn't designed for that. This is a fighting knife designed to intimidate & cut and will give great comfort in those times when calling 911 just isn't going to be fast enough.....The Dbad Preacher is perfect for that though and it will do all the above and more. The wood grip fits the hand perfectly and I find that it will function as a kitchen knife as well as fire prep. The sweeping blade can be used for butchering and all around camp chores. It may be smaller than the Bowie but it can still be used for defensive purposes and if you squint a bit, you can see the Khukuri similarities in its design. Quality is exceptional. Both blades are under priced for what you get IMHO. Buy from KHHI and you will not be disappointed!!!

BETTER THAN I EXPECTED

To Saroj Lama ( SLT) Son of Khukuri

I HAD THE GREAT HONOUR OF WORKING WITH THE 7th GHURKA RIFLES DURING MY TIME WITH THE BRITISH ARMY.
THE GHURKA'S ARE FINE SOLDIERS WHO REGUARDED THEIR REGIMENT AS THERE 2nd FAMILY.
MY UNCLE WAS A CHINDIT WHO FOUGHT WITH THE GHURKAS AGAINST THE JAPANESE IN BURMA DURING THE 2nd WORLD WAR,  SERGEANT JAMES BENNETT, THE GHURKAS CALLED HIM ( SERGEANT BENNY ).  HE HAD GREAT RESPECT FOR THE GHURKA SOLDIERS THAT HE SERVED WITH.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK LOK BAHADUR LAMA ( SUBASH ) FOR MAKING MY DBAD WAR MACHINE, THE KNIFE IS PERFECT AND STRONG, HE IS A TRUE CRAFTSMEN.
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO THANK AJUN BARAILY FOR MAKING MY DBAD BIG JIM BOWIE, I WANTED THE KNIFE REDESIGNED AND IT TURNED OUT BETTER THAN I EXPECTED, OUTSTANDING  WORKMANSHIP, STRONG AND ALSO A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF ART.
I LOOK FORWARD TO MY NEXT PURCHASE.

NAMASTE !
RESPECTFULLY YOURS
