a D-Guard Bowie that is truly battle ready; your Calm yet Cruel companion, be it at peace or in war...
Designed by YouTube knife reviewer Donnie B All Day, this mammoth D-Guard Bowie is as capable as it’s ancestors before it. A blade that can be wielded from horseback as easily as it could be on foot.
What’s so special about the blade?
Using quarter inch 52100 steel, this true full tang knife features a blade stretching 14” with a 6” rosewood handle for a massive 20” reach. The oversized fuller reduces weight through the center of the blade helping to carry the weight to the front of the swing, making it the most capable chopper you can put in your hands.
Why use wood scales?
The D-Guard Bowie was popularized during the American Civil War. Like the originals before it, this knife uses wood scales for an organic grip and flawless contouring. Using wood also helps for making a perfect fit for the guard to seat closely to the scales.
THANK YOU NOTE from KHHI nepal
The DBAD Old War Bowie is a fascinating knife from Mr. Donnie which we thoroughly enjoyed working on it. Its one of the best knives we have ever done and something that you can really depend on. The design is cleverly done by DBAD keeping the historical essence, functional aspect and also the battle point of view in mind. The long sweeping blade profile with deep fuller well supported by its straight comfortable handle having “D” guard with a very nicely done Western Leather Sheath make it a complete package to carry with pride and comfort in mind. I as the Founder and MD of the company hearty thank Mr. Donnie for his amazing knives. I must admit that we would have never come up with such master pieces had it not been for him. We hope to continue our brotherhood for a very long time and promise together to working relentlessly to making high quality knives at best possible prices for the public. Thank you Donnie sahib!!
