Popular in the Confederacy during the Civil War for its all-purpose capabilities, the D-Guard bowie chopped branches, split logs, sliced saplings and even had its way with a Yankee or two. Reenactors use it to dig cannon emplacements! The steel guard can withstand punishment and the massive, high carbon steel blade holds an edge well. A soldier on the move soon learns to travel light (ours is 1 lb. 5 oz.), so a handmade bowie was often treasured as a backup weapon when the entire cavalry were "under the guns." Grip is contoured wood with light stain. 23" overall. 18" blade, 1 5/8" wide, 3/16" thick.

"Awesome knife, for the price I can't complain." - Phil (4/5)
"The bowie itself was great, and the finish was amazing. My only issue is that I wish the tang was a bit thicker (but apparently the current thickness is normal for most blades like this)" - Jonathan (5/5)
