Knife Of The Day IV

Our Knife Of The Day for this wondermous Dec. 4 is Steve Culver’s reproduction of what’s known as the “Searles/Fowler Bowie.” The 9 1/8-inch blade is 1095 carbon steel and the blackwood handle features sterling silver pins and 24k-gold fittings.

     The original Searles/Fowler Bowie on which Culver’s repro is based was made by Daniel Searles for Rezin Bowie, brother of Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall-Of-Fame© member James Bowie, who presented it to a Henry Fowler of the U.S. Dragoons, and is on display in the Alamo.
