Böker Solingen Classic Western Bowie Knife
- Made in Solingen / Germany -
The design of the traditional Boker Bowie was based on original drafts from the early 19th century and equipped with an extremely stable, 6.4 mm thick blade made from stainless 4034. The name of the knife goes back to James "Jim" Bowie, the famous pioneer and soldier who is revered as a hero of the Wild West. Contrary to the widely copied Sheffield Bowie, the variations of this outdoor knife resemble the early American Bowie with its s-shaped stainless steel crossguard sporting a finely satinized surface. The exquisite scales of walnut wood lend the Boker Bowie even more authenticity. Comes with a high-quality Western leather sheath.
