2017 This is an original design by me and I plan to start having them made in Nepal . Make your orders now. This may be the last year I make these.
The Frank Bowie has a lot of items in the design. It is a true forward curved blade for chopping. The spine does go forward to assist in chopping. The side of the blade has a slight fuller to reduce friction when chopping. The angle the blade drops was based on the grip of the 1911 pistol. It is full tang with 2 finger grooves for grip. The back part of the handle is designed for you to be able to choke back on the handle and swing for more power. Reinforced Lanyard hole was added for those that prefer a Lanyard Hole.
The Sheath has a metal reinforced thumb snap. The handle strap is wrapped around the handle in such a way that it will not snag as you walk through the brush and unsnap your handle. A D-Ring was added for that that want to hang it on a back pack or other mode of carry such as drop carry – limited by your imagination. Large leather strap wraps the middle to allow horizontal carry and this leather strap is removable by removing the 2 mounting screws.
