The Winchester Large Bowie knife with a refined wooden handle and large stainless steel blade is the pefect old west style knife. This knife is engeneered for strength and reliability, with a corrosion resistant blade that is easily sharpened. A full tang construction means that the blade extends through the handle, increasing the strength and durability of the knife. The grooved wooden handle ensures a comfortable grip even when wet, while the brass cross guard safely seperates your hand from the blade. The traditional Bowie design icludes a tip that is lower than the spine of the blade for added control, a streamlined, beveled edge with a curve perfect for skinning. A notch at the base of the blade can be used to strip wires or repair ropes and nets.
