Hunter’s Companion Bowie
Shortly after photography was invented proud frontiersmen were having their portraits taken with their prized bowies at their sides. This massive knife style was being produced in Sheffield, England for the American market, just in time for pioneers and soldiers to show them off for the photographer’s lens. Along with several other styles, cutlery shops promoted this type of knife as the hunter’s companion. It’s large enough for camp chores and disjointing game, yet light and fast enough for self-defense. Full profile tang, nickel guard and pins. Hardwood scales. Leather sheath included.
