When we first heard about the Pocket Bowie, we were skeptical. One of the defining features of a Bowie knife is the large blade. What would a Bowie be, we wondered, without the size? But the new Pocket Bowie from Boker and Tom Krein has made believers out of us. The shaving sharp 2 1/2″ blade is small enough to be hidden under your shirt as a neck knife, but it feels like a larger knife. Maybe it is just the attitude that this knife has in comparison to other neck knives, but the spirit of the Bowie knife clearly surges beneath the steel of this blade.
