Cold Steel makes incredible knives. Many of their knives are designed after period pieces. But don’t be misled, just because they look similar to a period piece knife, doesn’t mean they are just for show. Often, the opposite is true. These period knives combine all that is great about the shape and style of a knife with modern materials and production techniques to produce knives that are built for heavy, directed use. The Natchez Bowie is no exception. The Bowie knife has a huge fan base . It first became popular back with Jim Bowie–you can find a short history of him and the knife here. The Natchez Bowie design originated back in Natchez, Mississippi. It came to light with the “Under-The-Hill” gang and their capers in the extremely rowdy riverfront district known as Natchez. The knife was built for battle. A long, well shaped blade gives you reach, strength and leverage with a near perfect balance point. Great for piercing, chopping, and slashing; the Natchez Bowie is a period piece that is still relevant today. Check it out here on our website.
