An integral tool for humankind, the knife has been in use for more than 2 million years. Bowie hunting knives are multi-purpose tools that have served men and women in a variety of capacities over the years. Designed in the early 19th century as a fighting knife for Jim Bowie — an American pioneer who gained notoriety during the Texas Revolution and the Battle of the Alamo — American Bowie knives have played a prominent role in our nation's history.
While there have been multiple variations of the Bowie knife produced over the past 150+ years, the term describes a large sheath knife featuring a long blade, crossguard and clip point. Because of its size and sharpness, a quality Bowie knife can serve well as a hunting tool or weapon. The U.S. military has issued versions of the Bowie knife to its troops, and it has also become a coveted item among collectors of historical memorabilia.
