Durable Wood and Brass Handle with Stylish Accents
A warm-toned wood and brass handle is detailed with brass rivets and equipped with finger grooves for a comfortable and secure grip, even when wet. The brass cross guard functionally separates your hand from the blade and matches the other brass accents.

A notch near the hilt can be used as the sharpening starting point, to strip wires or sinew, and help repair rope or nets.

Included Sheath Protects the Blade
The durable ballistic nylon sheath is an ideal carrying case for the Winchester Bowie Knife. The hard plastic liner keeps the blade safe, while the two retaining straps keep your knife in a safe place until you’re ready to use it.

  1. Good intro to big Bowies My wife got me this knife for my birthday because I mainly use small and mid-sized knives and have so far avoided getting a taste for the huge Bowies. She wanted to see if I liked this type without spending much. The answer is yes, I like it a lot.It’s massive and nose-heavy, with the point of balance right at the big full-finger choil in front of the guard. This weight-forward configuration makes the knife very eager to chop, and I immediately complied by destroying some lemons, potatoes, corn cobs, and an old pine 2×6. The edge was shaving-sharp right out of the box, but my abuse resulted in some bright spots where the edge was visibly dinged. I restored it in under a minute with an Accusharp carbide-V sharpening gadget.The primary bevel is a half-flat or “saber” grind, which emphasizes strength over slicing. Still, the knife excelled at the above-named kitchen tasks, as well as slicing celery, bell peppers, and meat. It was not quite optimal, however, for dicing onions. The thick, heavy blade tended to bind in such firm material and was a bit fatiguing to use. Still, it got the job done, and I found the radically clipped point very nimble and handy for piercing. I only wished I had a coconut to split.I have my doubts about the edge-holding ability of this knife, as it is made from obviously inexpensive 420-J2 stainless steel subjected to who-knows-what heat treatment, and I have managed to ding it up a bit initially. But it certainly isn’t brittle, which would spell uselessness for a knife like this. I imagine that a few sessions with the Accusharp might re-profile the edge to a more durable angle, but only time will tell.The package says it is made for the Winchester brand by “Carolina Knife and Tool,” which I hear is a cheaper label of Gerber knives– the Ford to Gerber’s Lincoln, if you will. So I would imagine that they have some idea of how to make a good knife, even if they are doing it in China.The handle scales are Pakkawood, an engineered wood laminate that behaves much like hardwood but is inert, which is to say that it will not move or shrink or crack. It’s stained to look like rosewood and finished with a tough, glossy lacquer or polyurethane. Together with the brass guard and pins, it makes for a more attractive package than other inexpensive “survival” or “tactical” knives. My only complaint is the finger ridges, a bit of over-engineering that can only detract from the knife’s versatility.The sheath is heavy, stiff Cordura nylon with plastic reinforcement at the throat and two retaining straps with snaps. It’s not too fancy, just a secure, durable, weatherproof sheath that rides nicely on the belt. It does have a few nasty bits of Hide of the Nauga around the snaps, which is no big deal.I wouldn’t hesitate to carry this knife in the woods, as long as I could also carry a sharpening gadget like the Accusharp or the Meyerco Sharpen-It to allay my reservations about the blade material. If you had to choose one do-everything backwoods knife, this really would not be a bad choice, as it is capable of heavy chopping as well as more delicate tasks like slicing vegetables. To step up at all in the Bowie market would require triple the price at the very least, and so I’d say this is a great knife for seeing if you’re interested, and it’ll get some work done while you’re at it. It has certainly whetted my appetite for more of these big knives.

  2. pretty, but fragile Let’s get what I don’t like about this knife out of the way first.I don’t like the finger grooves. The finger grooves on a knife never fit my hand, and get in the way with my preferred horizontal grip. The brass hardware was marred out of box, indicating poor quality control. The brass rivets and lanyard bushing were incompletely finished with burrs that irritated my hand, and the brass finger guard had a deep scratch.The knife is not full tang as described, but a weaker spike tang with 2 rivets. This indicates the knife is more of a display piece than a real working bowie which should have a full tang and 3 rivets. The small tang makes the knife blade heavy, an awkward balance for cutting.I’ve posted a picture of the knife balanced on my index finger. The knife balances about an inch forward of the brass finger guard.The weak tang and front heavy balance create a conundrum. The balance is good for throwing or chopping, but the spike tang could possibly break with a missed throw or heavy chop. If you want a thrower or chopper, a better choice would be the stronger full tang Cold Steel large thrower, . The budget priced Cold Steel knives use a Chinese carbon steel that sharpens well, but will rust if not maintained.Now I’ll cover the good points.The best parts of this knife are the price and the edge it takes. I gave the blade a couple licks on my butcher’s steel. I expected a soft, impossible to sharpen, 420 type stainless. I was pleasantly surprised that the sharpened blade readily shaved hair off my arm. I researched the steel used in the knife online without success. My best guess is a Chinese version of 440 stainless, possibly 440c, an easy to sharpen stainless with a good balance between price and performance.The flawed handle is an easy fix with emery cloth. The flimsy spike tang is a major flaw that can’t be fixed. The low price and easy to sharpen blade make this knife a reasonable buy, provided you are willing to live within the restrictions of the weak tang.
