After 70+ years of continuous production, the design remains unchanged and is still 100% handmade in Great Britain:

  • Full tang blade with solid brass triple rivets
  • Overall length of knife is 8.25" including 4" grip/scales
  • Rosewood scales with knurled, non-slip grips
  • Drilled hole for safety lanyard
  • Includes drop forged, stainless 7" marlinspike with shackler
  • Leather sheath

The sheath (also known as a "scabbard") is oil-tanned English leather with heavyweight stitching and a loop for belts up to 2" wide.

COMMENTS:  Special edition from SHIPCANVAS includes New England wrist lanyard (as pictured) plus commemorative storage pouch. Excellent for gift giving or presentation. Ships quickly and directly from our USA stockroom.

 "Received my Bowie knife and fid today. It is a beautiful knife and well worth the price. It is robust so I'm confident it will last me many years! Adding the personal note was a nice touch."  - Bill

Thanks for your kind words Bill... much appreciated and I'm glad you're pleased with the kit. This configuration has been popular at our local shop here in the Keys, but we only recently put it up on our website. The Bowie blade does well for rigging but our home port of Key Largo is a special (if somewhat rowdy) place at times... in between sailing there's just as much drinking, fishing and fighting going on... but not necessarily in that order... same as it ever was! And so to make a long story short, the kit you selected is able to accommodate all of the above, with great efficiency. Good choice, sir, and may it serve you well, always!... 🙂 
Your friend,
