It is not hard to see why a Bowie knife would have been the favorite knife of Civil War soldiers. This Civil War Bowie Knife has an ornate look, although it still looks like a deadly blade that is fit for a soldiers hand. The effectiveness of the Bowie knife was proved by Jim Bowie during his Vidalia Sandbar Fight, when he used a knife, similar in form to this one, to defeat and kill his opponent, despite having been shot and stabbed many times. This knife is simple in its form, possessing a wide blade with a clipped point, which gives the wielder options and strength, ensuring that the blade is great for offense and defense, as well as for stabbing or slashing. The ebony horn handle of the knife is quite attractive as well, and is adorned with brass spacing that features simple crosshatch designs for added design and character. The blade is crafted from polished carbon steel and measures approximately 9.5 inches long, making it a bit shorter than your typical Bowie knife and a bit more portable. Included with the knife is a black leather sheath that is trimmed with either brass or silver fittings. It has an overall length of approximately 15 inches. With its stunning look, this Civil War Bowie Knife is a great collectible to add to your collection, as a well as a stunning knife to hang at your side the next time you head out onto a reenactment field to play your part as a Union or a Confederate soldier.
