This knife is large and in charge with its massive handle and blade. The handle is full tang with wooden mounts stained in a lovely gray and sealed. Brass accents compliment the handle and match the large 4 inch guard. This blade is not only broad but it is heavy and weighted in your hand the way a knife should be. This Bowie is constructed of a 440 stainless steel in a trail point style with a satin finish. Great for hunting as the sharpness of the blade makes skinning very easy. Besides hunting there are many avid Bowie collectors that would love to get there handles on this beauty. Included is a rather comprehensive leather sheath that comes with a belt loop and snap closure. Tooled in the front and made of thick durable leather how could anyone ask for anything more?
