The Bowie knife has been present in popular culture throughout the ages, ranging from the days of the Western dime novels and pulps, to Literary Fiction such as the 1897 classic vampire novel Dracula by Irish author Bram Stoker. Despite the popular image of Count Dracula having a stake driven through his heart at the conclusion of the story, Dracula is actually killed by his heart being pierced by Quincey Morris's Bowie knife and his throat being sliced by Jonathan Harker's Kukri knife. You can find the mention of the Bowie knife in several other American Literary works just adding steam to its already amazing legacy. The lovely variation you see here is definitely something to talk about with its massive blade and broad handle. The blade is a traditional clip point with a short fuller and satin finish but the thickness of the blade is the prize making it extremely durable. It is constructed from 440 stainless Steel. Wooden and leather stacked bands on the handle give it a unique look while the brass guard and pommel accents the colors making them subtle yet vibrant. Included is a thick tooled leather sheath with a belt loop and snap closure.
