Bear and Son Cutlery, hailing from Jacksonville, AL, is introducing its new 15-inch Freedom Bowie knife. This classic large-format, fixed-blade knife is useful for all manner of tasks no matter where life may take you.
The Bowie knife is perhaps one of the most classic American blade profiles of the 19th century. The knife is usually found with a broad fixed-blade, single-edge knife with a solid cross guard and a very distinctive clip drop blade profile. Though historians dispute the fact, the legend of the Bowie knife states that Rezin Bowie originally crafted it in Arkansas for his brother James Bowie, an avowed knife fighter who famously died defending the Alamo in San Antonio, TX.
The Bear and Son Cutlery Company’s 15-inch Bowie knife is made from D2 tool steel and features a robust spine for added strength. It features a hollow ground blade with a curved brass guard. Part of the reason Bear and Son Cutlery launched these blades was in order to pay homage to the great American scouts, trappers, lawmen and warriors who helped shape the United States of America. Bear and Son Cutlery’s Bowie knife also offers some modern refinements, most notably a notched choil—a must on any serious fighting knife. Cocobolo grip panels are fitted to each side of the knife and individually inspected for grain density and pattern. Once installed into the knife’s grip, these are polished.
