Popular in the Confederacy during the Civil War for its all-purpose capabilities, the D-Guard Bowie chopped branches, split logs, sliced saplings and even had its way with a Yankee or two. Re-enactors use it to dig cannon emplacements! The steel guard can withstand punishment and the massive, high carbon steel blade holds an edge well. A soldier on the move soon learns to travel light, so a handmade Bowie was often treasured as a backup weapon when the entire cavalry were "under the guns." Grip is contoured wood with light stain. Includes leather sheath with metal furniture.
