Cold Steel 16DN Natchez Bowie - CPM-3V Steel Blade - Black Linen Micarta Handle - Secure-Ex® Sheath
Cold Steel's Natchez Bowie was born "Under-The-Hill" and takes its pedigree from those seedy taverns and dimly lit streets. Line-bred for battle, it’s the definitive fighting Bowie. Its long blade is perfectly shaped for strength, reach, and leverage and its significant heft is flawlessly balanced, giving it unparalleled liveliness and velocity. Combine all that with its wickedly razor-sharp edge and you have a knife that pierces like a dagger, cuts like a razor, and chops like a cleaver!
The very best in materials and workmanship is what makes performance like this possible. The blade is made of CPM-3V tool steel. It’s costly and difficult to fashion, but the resulting blade it yields is virtually indestructible. The handle also plays a big role in the overall performance. It has a double quillion guard, bolster, and pommel made of highly polished 300 series stainless steel and a gorgeous black Linen Micarta handle. It will easily accommodate a wide variety of gripping methods while serving as a very formidable impact weapon as well.
Each Natchez Bowie is supplied with a Secure-Ex sheath to protect the blade and allow you to wear it safely and securely on your side always ready to defend you and your loved ones.

More about CPM-3V steel
American CPM 3-V can take an extremely fine edge which is highly chip-resistant. In recent years, it has proved very popular with custom knife makers. Though costly, this modern tool steel is astonishingly tough and exceptionally wear resistant. It is a fine-grained powdered steel, with a very uniform microstructure giving it excellent impact resistance and fine edge holding performance, and making it perfectly suited for larger blades where extreme toughness is required.
