Detailed Anatomy of Bowie Knives

Bowie knives are always appreciated by hunters, knife collectors and outdoorsmen because they are tough and reliable. Designed by the great James Bowie, this knife has a very simple architecture of a fixed blade. The pattern of this knife is still popular and many of the manufacturing companies are making custom made bowie knives with different kinds of variations.

The simple bowie knife consists of the following parts: - guard, handle, tip, forefinger ring (nor present in all bowie), blade (made up of either steel or carbon), edge.

The handmade bowie knives are made using all traditional methods which were followed in earlier times especially for knife collectors.
