Cold Steel 1917 Frontier 17.6" Bowie Knife | Hardwood Handle, 1055 Carbon Steel, CS88CSAB
From its huge imposing blade to its handsome rosewood handle, every inch of our Frontier Bowie screams perfection!
Almost sword-like in its cutting and thrusting performance, the Frontier Bowie features a wide, wickedly keen hand-sharpened blade with a generous clip and huge fuller. Made from 1055 Carbon Steel, it is heat treated to a hard spring temper and beautifully blued to a lustrous finish. Its blade is both long and stiff enough to oppose even much larger weapons, while wide and sharp enough to make the most of every opportunity to cut, thrust and deliver a "palpable hit".
The Frontier Bowie's handle is a perfect accompaniment to its battle-ready blade. Its big "S" shaped guard offers excellent hand protection while the slim, flat profile stops it from twisting in your hand and keeps your edge alignment true even in the heat of combat. Its modified pistol grip also keeps the knife locked safely in your hand even when utilizing a palm reinforced grip for extended reach and leverage in the thrust.
To further compliment this exceptional knife, we have created a high quality leather sheath with a blued steel throat and chape. Its swiveling leather belt frog is wide enough to accommodate even a thick military belt and fully detachable to allow you to slide the knife into your belt for a more traditional carry.
This versatile knife is suitable for historical re-enactment groups from the 1830’s onwards, Cowboy Action Shooters, civil war re-enactors and even modern Military groups. This truly battle ready blade is ready for any adventure, so whatever your Frontier, make sure that you have a Cold Steel Frontier Bowie by your side!

1917 frontier bowie, beautiful bowie2 August 2018This bowie is brilliant! It looks even better in person, its quite comfortable to hold. The blueing and the dark rosewood (i think) goes 'hand in hand'. It's not too heavy either. The scabbard is perfectly suited with the black leather and some black metal parts to it, the frog i believe it is called adds a nice touch that other knives i own do not have, came really sharp with some heavy grease on it to keep it in good nick. Well worth the money and a nice piece to own.
