KA-BAR successfully balances the spirit of the Bowie knives from the Old West with the sleek, modern designs of today in the Large Heavy Bowie.

Featuring a whopping 9-inch 1085 carbon steel blade and weighing in at nearly a pound, this knife will always get the job done, no questions asked. Like the knives of old, this Bowie is a huge utility/fighting knife that does not mess around.

A quick look at the classic Bowie knives reveals the propensity for ornate designs with decorative handles and large hand guards, but the KA-BAR Bowie boasts a minimalistic design more common in recent knives.

Yet it's just as functional as any classic Bowie and every bit as dependable.

The 5.25-inch handle is made of highly durable Kraton that's grooved for a strong and reliable grip. Even more important is the comfort factor of the handle, which features a nice three-dimensionality that conforms to your hand.

When you're in need of a strong fixed blade to tackle heavy duty jobs, fewer knives match the intensity of the KA-BAR Large Heavy Bowie.

The knife also comes with a Cordura and leather sheath, so you can always have the spirit of the Old West by your side.

Specifications

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.

Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.

He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was "k a bar". The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
