Bowie knives are a staple of American knife history. Rezin P. Bowie is the namesake of the modern bowie knife and constructed the first bowie knife from an old file in the late 1820's. The knife was designed to be used for hunting...
To see our unique selection of bowie knives click the link above or choose "Bowie Knives" from the "Type" drop down menu to the left.
It was said that James Bowie, Rezin's brother, used this same knife to kill Maj. Norris Wright in a now infamous fight that was part of what launched bowie knives into knife fame.
Although the Bowie was an intrinsically American knife it is now produced all over the world. There are so many different design variations of bowie knives that it is hard to keep up.
Some people have said that the 'survival knife' is the most modern extrapolation of the bowie design.
At World Knives we have a growing selection of modern Bowie knives.
