Boker Plus Bowie Combo Edge Blade with Micarta Handles
This is a modern bowie that is well made and has a partially serrated edge and sells for a reasonable price. What’s not to like? The blade is high quality 440C stainless steel and is massively thick- close to 1/4″ stock. It comes with a well made leather sheath.
Here is Boker’s information:
A modern Bowie interpretation from Boker Plus. The hollow grind and the recurve edge provide excellent cutting capabilities for various tasks, while the partial serrations can handle any fibrous materials with ease. The massive blade (nearly ¼” thick) is made of 440C stainless steel and is satin finished, and the blade, pommel and the “S-type” guard are bead blasted. The rounded handle, with its deep finger grooves, provides a comfortable and secure grip. The handle scales are made of black micarta, and feature red fiber underlays. A lanyard hole in the pommel allows for extra secure carry and use. A round tang in the handle with screw-attached pommel provides maximum strength. Not only does this piece make the perfect outdoor knife, it’s also ideal for collectors. Includes a sturdy leather sheath. Overall length: 13 3/8”. Blade length: 7½”. Weight: 17.3 oz.
