A beautiful early type of Bowie knife by Windlass Steelcrafts. Bowie knives were first used by Colonel James Bowie at the Battle of Natchez in the 19th century. It is said to have been designed by his brother Rezin in Louisiana specially for close combat. The bowie knife is a hunting knife with an efficient design: a fixed blade and a prominent cross-guard. This replica bowie knife has a classic model with wooden grip and a so-called Spanish notch, the notch just below the cross-guard. Research has shown that it is not intended for parrying an attack, but for practical survival purposes like cutting sinew and repairing ropes. The blade is made of tempered 1085 carbon steel with a hardness of 48-52 HRC. It is delivered including a scabbard.
