From its blade to its handsome rosewood handle, every inch of this Frontier Bowie screams perfection!


The Cold Steel Frontier Bowie features a wide, 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. The Frontier Bowie's handle is a perfect accompaniment with 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. Its modified pistol grip also keeps the knife locked safely in your hand.


To further compliment this exceptional knife, Cold Steel 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.

    Great knife

    Posted by Jim on 1st Dec 2019

    A beautifully crafted and well put together blade. Not only does it look great, but is a good all round heavy duty camp knife. Incredibly pleased with this tool for the price.

    And as always, fantastic delivery on the part of Heinie (came the next day from ordering)

    Impressive

    Posted by T.E. on 21st Feb 2019

    I looked for a long time and finally decided to take the plunge, I read mixed reviews online and already have plenty of big bowies but I'm happy to say my example sits firmly in the positive camp, It's a big knife by any standards but not overly heavy or badly balanced, the blue is uniform and deep even under the handle, all grinds are even, the point is needle like, the blade gives a nice ring when flicked near the edge, (always makes me smile when a blade does that), you can tell it's hand made but obviously by people who know their stuff.
    PS, be prepared to spend half an hour degreasing it, it comes smothered in sticky preservative grease.

    A real bowie

    Posted by Steve on 2nd May 2018

    After waiting a long time for the frontier bowie to come back in stock , i was pleased to get my email frm HH confirming availability .
    I quickly hit the purchase button and settled in to await its arrival .
    As usual for HH a large box arrived the next day . Thanks again HH for excellent service .
    On opening i was very pleased to find after a good wipe down of the blade , a perfect example .
    The finish on both handle and blade is superb .
    Absolutely no imperfections on this knife .
    Very impressive on a hand forged blade .
    The sheath is very nicely made .
    Overall an awesome bowie and definately a knife that met my expectations .

    My resurrection knife

    Posted by Mark b on 5th Aug 2017

    Two years ago I was sat in hospital trying to recover from a huge heart attack and coma. I bought this using my iPad and made the wife leave it unopened. This was my goal - to make it home so I could play with this knife.

    When I got home this was waiting for me and I've loved it ever since. A ridiculously big package at a very fair price. My hands aren't huge but this monster fits perfectly and feels "right".

    Very deserving of 5 stars!

    Posted by Tom on 15th Mar 2017

    Fantastic craftsmanship, well built, and stunningly beautiful as well.
    This thing has a really huge intimidating blade that could give Crocodile Dundee a run for his money.All of the steel is very nicely blued and comes with a healthy coating of grease to make sure it arrives in perfect condition. I was a little worried that square handle would be uncomfortable but it's actually not bad at all.
    It's a far cry from the cheapo Chinese stuff. Definitely worth buying.

    Respect!

    Posted by PT on 20th Mar 2015

    Much like Stan, I was in two minds also. I'm not a bowie fan normally but I found this to be immediately compelling, probablyy due to the retro "replica" appearance so I went ahead and ordered one. Arrived in HH's usual double quick time and when I unpacked it to find it covered in grease and made in India I thought " oh no, what have I done", just spent my hard earned on something I could have picked up for nowt in a Spanish coastal gift shop? It wasnt even sharp! But wait a minute, cleaned it up with WD40, stroked it a few times with a chefs steel and OMG, this is one serious blade! It looks stunning, inside or outside of that amazing sheath, a huge amount of knife for the money. Get one, dont judge too quickly, you'll love it soon enough! Thanks HH

    Something Else

    Posted by Stan on 16th Mar 2015

    I was in two minds about ordering this knife but went ahead and bit the bullet. Am I glad I did.
    My wife cannot understand it when I call a knife a thing of beauty she thinks I'm being weird, this one was nearly grounds for divorce as I instantly fell in love with it. ... After a little stropping the blade was razor sharp and actually pierced my finger on the needle point tip, the size shape and lines, and the black carbon finish really do make it a thing of beauty. The quality of the sheath is unbelievable for the price, thick well stitched leather, its a joy to handle. came in time for a little camping trip to Snowdonia with a few other idiots who enjoy extreme discomfort who were well impressed with it. The handle on mine had a nice grain figuration on it and its beyond me why anyone would want to tape it up but each to his own...

    P.S.

    Just a footnote; After just watching the walking dead on T.V. it occurred to me that this knife would make a great Zombie ******..
