Engineered for Strength and Reliability
The Winchester Bowie Knife features a stainless steel blade that is corrosion resistant and easy to sharpen. Full tang construction means that the blade extends through the handle, increasing the strength and usability of this large knife.

Durable Wood and Brass Handle with Stylish Accents
A warm-toned wood and brass handle is detailed with brass rivets and equipped with finger grooves for a comfortable and secure grip, even when wet. The brass cross guard functionally separates your hand from the blade and matches the other brass accents.

Larger Size and Weight for Control and Stability
With an 8.57-inch blade, the Winchester Bowie Knife measures 14.25 inches in length and weighs 14.4 ounces. The heft and weight of this fixed blade knife give you increased control and stability during use.

Bowie Style for Versatile Uses
The shape and style of the Winchester Bowie Knife reflects the traditional Bowie design, including a blade tip that's lower than the spine of the blade for added control, a bevel edge at the point to streamline the tip, and a curved edge near the point for removing skin from a carcass. A notch near the hilt can be used as the sharpening starting point, to strip wires or sinew, and help repair rope or nets.

Included Sheath Protects the Blade
The durable ballistic nylon sheath is an ideal carrying case for the Winchester Bowie Knife. The hard plastic liner keeps the blade safe, while the two retaining straps keep your knife in a safe place until you're ready to use it.

My wife got me this knife for my birthday because I mainly use small and mid-sized knives and have so far avoided getting a taste for the huge Bowies. She wanted to see if I liked this type without spending much. The answer is yes, I like it a lot.

It's massive and nose-heavy, with the point of balance right at the big full-finger choil in front of the guard. This weight-forward configuration makes the knife very eager to chop, and I immediately complied by destroying some lemons, potatoes, corn cobs, and an old pine 2x6. The edge was shaving-sharp right out of the box, but my abuse resulted in some bright spots where the edge was visibly dinged. I restored it in under a minute with an Accusharp carbide-V sharpening gadget.

The primary bevel is a half-flat or "saber" grind, which emphasizes strength over slicing. Still, the knife excelled at the above-named kitchen tasks, as well as slicing celery, bell peppers, and meat. It was not quite optimal, however, for dicing onions. The thick, heavy blade tended to bind in such firm material and was a bit fatiguing to use. Still, it got the job done, and I found the radically clipped point very nimble and handy for piercing. I only wished I had a coconut to split.

I have my doubts about the edge-holding ability of this knife, as it is made from obviously inexpensive 420-J2 stainless steel subjected to who-knows-what heat treatment, and I have managed to ding it up a bit initially. But it certainly isn't brittle, which would spell uselessness for a knife like this. I imagine that a few sessions with the Accusharp might re-profile the edge to a more durable angle, but only time will tell.

Let's get what I don't like about this knife out of the way first.

Contrary to the product description, the knife is not "Made in USA", and "full tang". The knife packaging says the knife is made in China. The tang is not a full tang, only a partial spike tang that barely extends to the second rivet. A real working bowie has a handle with a full exposed tang and 3 rivets. A weak partial spike tang means this knife is best suited to be a display piece.

The light tang makes the knife balance about an inch forward of the finger guard. The forward balance and flimsy tang create a conundrum. The balance is good for throwing or chopping, but the weak tang means the knife could break at the handle if used for throwing or chopping.

Now I'll cover the good points.

The best parts of this knife are the price and the edge it takes. I gave the blade a couple licks on my butcher's steel. I expected a soft, impossible to sharpen, 420 type stainless. I was pleasantly surprised that the sharpened blade readily shaved hair off my arm. I researched the steel used in the knife online without success. My best guess is a Chinese version of 440 stainless, possibly 440c, an easy to sharpen stainless with a good balance between price and performance.

If you are willing to overlook the inaccuracies of the product description, and if you don't plan to do any heavy chopping or throwing, then the low price and easy to sharpen blade make this knife a reasonable buy.

I have had this knife out of the package now for about 45 minutes and I have to say that I have been picking it up over and over and looking at it closely.
There are no visible defects anywhere on the knife or sheath. I do not care much for the Winchester name on the blade but it does not impact the function and
is merely cosmetic. For the $20 plus change that I paid for this knife I have to say that I am well pleased with it. So pleased in fact that I have already put
in an order for 2 more. Keeping in mind that this is not some custom made super steel alloy $300 knife I believe that the quality is very good.
So what if you have to put a stone or a steel to the blade now and then. It is well worth the money, not tax, and maybe free shipping if you buy more than one or other items.I find the finger grooves fit my hand (extra large glove size) just peachy and if your hands get wet, or bloody, you might be glad that the grooves are there.
My only possible complaint might be the thin material of the two straps which hold the knife in the sheath. The could be a little more substantial since
they will get a lot of use but they are probably tougher than they seem to be and will be adequate.

I plan to give away these extra knives to my friends when I need a cool "guy gift". Even if they have no practical use for such an knife it is
a bad to the bone blade that has real major machismo appeal. I do like knives and have quite a few including the Kabar combat knife that I was issued in Danang, Viet Nam in 1970. I am no stranger to working blades and this one fits the bill. You can use it and abuse it without worrying about damaging your expensive drawer queen custom made knife.

While this review may seem negative, i'm going to preface it by saying that i LOVE this knife. And i heavily used it for 7 months. Since the day it came in the mail it has been my favorite knife. It may be because i love larger knives, and this is the first one i have owned. But just the feel and weight(And the durability of it) has been great. It has survived countless chopped branches, saplings, and even a couple logs. I actually chose this over my axe and machete on multiple occasions while back in the woods. It doesn't hold an edge to an amazing degree, but that is to be expected with any 20 dollar knife. But it HAS survived countless re-sharpenings. And if you know what you're doing, you can put a beastly edge on this baby.
As far as the sheath goes, it's the highest-quality sheath I've seen for a low-cost knife. The part that houses the actual blade is solid plastic. Then that is wrapped by flexible plastic, and lastly it is wrapped in nylon. The duel straps are amazing, and make it feel very sturdy when it's strapped in the sheath. My only complaint with the sheath is that the belt loop is so huge. The actual sheath hangs at least 3 inches bellow your belt. I wish it was a smaller loop so the knife was up more, but it's a minor complaint.
Additionally, this knife is branded Winchester but from what I've heard, it's actually manufactured by Gerber Gear. So, if you have any opinion on Gerber, take that for what you will. The blade has no markings as to where it was made, but i would imagine Pakistan or China, as that's where the bulk of cheap knives are made.
However, it is NOT FULL TANG CONSTRUCTION like it says in the description!!
