Awesome is the only adjective that even begins to describe our Laredo Bowie. In fact, it really has to be seen to be appreciated, since mere words just don't do it justice. It features a long, heavy blade made from vacuum heat-treated VG-1 San Mai III blade construction, which is flat ground to produce incredible cutting power and perfect balance. And, as an added bonus, it is given an absolutely ferocious cutting edge that terminates in a dagger sharp point.
To further enhance its versatility and efficiency as a weapon, it sports a four and a half inch long sharpened clip point that helps facilitate the deadly back cut, as well as a wide variety of more conventional cuts and stabbing attacks.
The rich, polished black Micarta handle is as tough as it is beautiful. It is specially contoured to fit the hand like a glove and to provide a positive grip when cutting, chopping or thrusting.
To complement the Laredo's incredibly sharp blade and superb handle, we have carefully forged a unique guard and integral bolster out of a single piece of brass. Both bolster and guard are handsomely detailed and are finished with a fine mirror polish.
To keep your Laredo Bowie safely at your side and ready for action, we have provided a traditionally styled black leather scabbard that features heavy stitching, brass rivets, thick leather, and a convenient brass belt peg so you can safely slip the sheath under your belt.
