From its huge blade to its handsome rosewood handle, every inch of our Frontier Bowie screams perfection!

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. Made from 1055 Carbon Steel, it is heat treated to a hard spring temper and beautifully blued to a lustrous finish. Its blade is both long and stiff enough to oppose even much larger weapons, while wide and sharp enough to make the most of every opportunity to cut, thrust and deliver a "palpable hit".

The Frontier Bowies handle is a perfect accompaniment to its blade. Its big "S" shaped guard offers excellent hand protection while the slim, flat profile stops it from twisting in your hand and keeps your edge alignment true. Its modified pistol grip also keeps the knife locked safely in your hand even when utilizing a palm reinforced grip for extended reach and leverage.

To further compliment this exceptional knife, Cold Steel have created a high quality leather sheath with a blued steel throat and chape. Its 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 a more traditional carry.

This versatile 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. This truly excellent blade is ready for any adventure, so whatever your Frontier, make sure that you have a Cold Steel Frontier Bowie by your side!

    1917 frontier bowie knife
    Review by David
    Removing the 1917 frontier bowie knife from the packaging, I was immediantely in awe of the superb craftmanship and quality before me. After removing the knife from the beautiful leather sheath, the knife was faultless in every way. Its a pleasure to own. Worth every penny.
