The Cold Steel Wild West Bowie is about the swashbuckling-est knife I’ve ever seen. Though taking this knife out of its sheath is as close as most of us will get to striking out into the frontier on horseback, the wooden handle, dramatic brass guards, and wide bowie blade seem well-equipped for the trip.
The 10.75” clip point blade is made from 1090 carbon steel. At nearly 5mm thick, it carries enough weight to chop, and has plenty of strength to withstand rough use. Marked down to $76.95 (down from our regular price of $95.99), it’s a whole lot of knife for your money.
The StrongArm is the latest evolution of Gerber’s continuing mission to make the perfect Military survival knife, an ideal they’ve been striving towards since 1968. Despite the straightforward, utilitarian look, the StrongArm is actually quite a refined design – those years of iteration have really paid off.
The knife itself is just solid: a comfortable, articulate cutting tool; yet something you wouldn’t hesitate to pry open a crate with. It’s practically indestructible, made in the USA with a 4.8” blade made from worry-free 420HC stainless steel for easy maintenance. And the sheath is phenomenally well thought out: lightweight, ambidextrous, secure, and modular for easy carry on either a MOLLE system or hanging from a belt. At $54.99 for a limited time, it’s a steal!
Somewhere between the brawny bravado of the Cold Steel Wild West Bowie and the tactical practicality of the Gerber StrongArm, is the reliable Buck 119.
With its 6″ 420HC clip point blade, it’s still got that bowie swagger. The phenolic resin and aluminum handle is field-proven by generations of hunters, and the hollow grind keeps the edge keen for years of re-sharpening. And as an added bonus, both the knife and the sturdy leather sheath are made in the USA. On sale for $49.95 until December 7th!
