Custom Knives by Zach Wood - Company Message
Bowies
 
The bowie knife is one of the most versatile knives around. Properly made it can be a purpose built light and fast fighter, or a stout and rugged camp/survival tool. There are as many styles to this knife as there is debate about where it originated. This is one of my favorite knives to build because there is so much that can be done with it, in style and function.
