The Peacemaker Bowie hidden tang knife making kit is our tribute to the combination large camp knife/bowie design. It is 13" inches overall and has a fully ground 7-3/4" inch satin finished blade. This Bowie knife blank is designed to work with a full handle treatment, affixed with either a pommel/butt cap or pinned using the (2) 3/16" inch tang holes. The handle tang has a 1/4-20 threaded end for use with a tang nut. The front of the handle tang is slotted for use with a traditional guard.
This blade blank has a false top edge and is 1.6" inches wide at the widest point. It is .170" inches thick and made from AUS8 stainless steel with a hardness of RC 56-58. This Bowie blade blank model has an excellent edge holding ability.
This Bowie knife making kit design is very well balanced and feels excellent in the hand. Properly finished, this knife kit will compete with any production camp knife on the market in both performance and value.
Note: Customer sample above shown with custom leather stacked handle and N/S fittings.
