The Spyderco Street Bowie is the ultimate knife for urban survival. Engineered with military and personal-defense applications in mind, this rugged and adaptable blade is a force to be reckoned with.
While Spyderco is renowned for its folding knives, the Street Bowie represents one of the brand's earliest ventures into fixed-blade collaborations. Its seamless integration with the Spyderco ethos is a testament to its exceptional design.
Crafted by esteemed custom knifemaker Fred Perrin, a former French Army Commando and self-defense instructor, this formidable knife embodies his wealth of experience and expertise. Perrin's insights have endowed the Street Bowie with unrivaled functionality and resilience.
Measuring an impressive 9.38 inches in overall length, this knife boasts a 5-inch flat ground VG-10 stainless steel blade with a clip point, ensuring optimal piercing capabilities. Its blade is further enhanced with a durable black ceramic coating, reducing reflections and enhancing stealth.
The handle of the Street Bowie is constructed from injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced nylon, incorporating a deep choil that secures your hand firmly to the knife, granting unmatched control and strength. The blade's contours and molded Kraton inserts offer a dependable grip, regardless of the conditions.
Responding to popular demand, Spyderco has reintroduced the Street Bowie to its lineup, complete with a redesigned sheath. The injection-molded polymer sheath features Spyderco's unique G-clip attachment, enabling versatile carry options such as belt, waistband, vertical, horizontal, or diagonal orientations.
Whether you require a resilient tool for demanding tasks or a versatile self-defense weapon, the Street Bowie unquestionably fulfills both roles. Choose the Street Bowie for unparalleled durability and adaptability in any situation.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.
From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:
Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.
We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, 'You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.' True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.
Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.
As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
