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.

This was my first order from KHHI and I love the knife. It’s a beast of a knife and I love the uniqueness of it. I appreciate their hard work and talent they have and will buy another product in the future.

Amazing craftsmanship

My dbad big jim was delivered today earlier than expected. On first inspection i could not believe how well packaged every thing was to a very professional standard. And then we get to the knife itself is a beautiful hand made musso bowie mine came with a sharpened false edge, that i am very happy about because thats how i wanted it. But there is still enough mass to chop perfectly without edge damage, i am a bowie collector and could not praise this one enough thankyou to my maker mr ARJUN BARAILY i am very happy with my knife and thank you to the khukuri house again

Best knife in my lifetime!

I have been a high end knife collector for the better part of 30 years, & the DBad bowie is my favorite by a mile! I am a caretaket of a large hunting camp/ estate, & this knife will be helpful for keeking creeps away with one look alone, as well as practical brush chopping tasks etc. I'm in love with this blade, you can tell the craftsman is a total master at his beautiful, & deadly art! I will try to upload some photos next to the huge Elk at this hunting lodge, & maybe the Moose? Who knows! Sending yall a giant high five! I'm in love!!!

Hello!! I just want to let you know that I received my Big Jim Bowie and it lives up to its name! 
I’m totally impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of this blade! I particularly like the brass around the pins on the handle! Nice detail!
It is a heavy duty blade but still lively in hand! 
It fits nice and tight in the sheath which is also of high quality! I look forward to my next purchase!!
Thank you so much!
