Cold Steel Frontier Bowie Knife (New for 2014)

From it's massive imposing 12.25" blade to it's handsome rosewood handle, every inch of the Cold Steel Frontier Bowie is awesome! The 1917 Frontier Bowie is almost sword-like in its cutting and thrusting performance, the Frontier Bowie features a wide, wickedly keen hand-sharpened blade with a generous clip and huge fuller (blood groove). Made from 1055 Carbon Steel, it has been heat treated to a hard spring temper and beautifully blued to a lustrous finish. It's blade is both long and stiff which makes it an easy to feat to oppose even much larger weapons.  The blade is wide and sharp and it welcomes the opportunity to cut, thrust and deliver a "palpable hit".
The Handle on the Frontier Bowie is a perfect accompaniment to its stout battle-ready blade. A big "S" shaped guard provides great hand protection and the slim, flat profile prevents the knife from twisting in your hand so you'll always know the orientation and alignment of the blade edge, even in the heat of combat. The handle has a modified pistol grip that gives an excellent grip even when utilizing a palm reinforced grip for extended reach and leverage in the thrust.
A high quality leather sheath with a blued steel throat and chape is included. It's swiveling leather belt frog is wide enough to accommodate even a thick military belt and fully detachable to allow you to slide the knife into your belt for traditional carry.
This versatile bowie knife is suitable for historical re-enactment groups from the 1830's onwards, Cowboy Action Shooters, civil war re-enactors and even modern Military groups.  If you're a fan of the Bowie, you'll definitely want to ad the Frontier Bowie to your collection!
