Large western style Bowie knives are an essential part of American bladed history. Designed as fighting knives first, they were much more than just self defense weapons. When cowboys were traveling by horseback, they needed to be light and fast. Nothing was carried that didn’t need to be. A pistol, a rifle, a canteen, fire starter, a bed roll and a one all, do all blade. It was his fighting blade, his cooking blade, his processing blade and even his shelter building blade. Sometimes it was even his toothpick. This is the kind of blade they would’ve carried… Just better.
What’s so special about the blade?
Using 17” of 7mm thick 5160 steel, we are able to produce a a blade length of 11.5” that’s 2” at it’s widest point. Not only does that give you an impressively strong hunk of steel, but it gives you the ability to use you knife without having to resharpen it every 20 minutes. The unsharpened swedge leads to an amazing penetrating point and the carved out deep fullers offers great protection from shock while creating a perfectly balanced knife.
Why use G-10?
G-10 is an easy to work with material and easy to find. It can be textured, it an be smooth. It’s durable and quite honestly, it look good to boot.
What is the grip?
The true full tang 5.5” grip from the front of the guard to the rear of the chunky hammer end pommel is made for real world use. Between comfort in the arched grip and choil, the ability to lash the weapon using the guard and lanyard hole and hammer end, there isn’t much you couldn’t use this beast for.
What is the Sheath?
Roughlander comes with a western style ALL Leather Sheath with belt loop, and double strap button to secure the blade firmly while carrying to avoid easy withdrawal.
