Down Under Knives - The Outback Bowie



Down Under Knives The Outback Bowie Knife. The Outback Knife features a forged, dual heat treated 440C stainless blade honed to a razor sharp edge. The back retains some spring to it while the edge has been made hard enough to withstand hundreds or thousands of cuts with no perceptible dulling. This is not a wall hanger - we set out to create the most devastatingly effective Bowie knife ever produced, and designed every detail like we mean it. Hack, slash, chop, cut, crush... This is one blade that will never let you down. We believe in putting our money where our mouth is, so we back this claim with a full five-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.




The handle is skillfully crafted out of genuine ebony, leather and brass with an ultra-strong tang that will not twist or break in heavy use. The solid, bead blasted brass handguard and pommel complete the distinctive look.
The Outback™ is truly both a great example of the knifemaker's art as well as the most rugged, dependable tool an outdoorsman could wish for. The Outback™ comes with a genuine heavy leather sheath patterned to resemble crocodile skin. The sheath features an integral retaining boot for the included high quality sharpening spike.

Down Under Knives is a fresh company born from over a decade of full-time experience in the knife industry. Their founders have been making and selling knives, working with metal and leather, and evaluating hundreds of designs for both business and pleasure for the better part of their lives. The company was built around a shared passion to create the ultimate Bowie - the knife we all felt should have been made ages ago, yet somehow never quite materialized so far. At Down Under Knives, they believe in our products. That's why they are backed by a no-fuss five-year warranty against all defects in materials and craftsmanship.

Oso Grande is happy to offer such value and excellence in craftsmanship straight from Australia!  In addition to the Outback Bowie, Down Under Knives also makes the Bush Dagger, Death Adder Dagger, Kookaburra Throwing Knives, Red Rock Raptor Kukri and the new Razorback Hunting knife.
