Cold Steel 1917 Frontier Bowie

Cold Steel 1917 Frontier Bowie



From its blade to its handsome rosewood handle, every inch of this Frontier Bowie screams perfection!

The Cold Steel Frontier Bowie features a wide, keen hand-sharpened blade with a generous clip and huge fuller. Made from 1055 Carbon Steel, it is heat treated to a hard spring temper and beautifully blued to a lustrous finish. The Frontier Bowie's handle is a perfect accompaniment with its big "S" shaped guard offers excellent hand protection while the slim, flat profile stops it from twisting in your hand and keeps your edge alignment true. Its modified pistol grip also keeps the knife locked safely in your hand.

To further compliment this exceptional knife, Cold Steel have created a high quality leather sheath with a blued steel throat and chape. Its swiveling leather belt frog is wide enough to accommodate even a thick military belt and fully detachable to allow you to slide the knife into your belt for a more traditional carry. This versatile knife is suitable for historical re-enactment groups from the 1830’s onwards, Cowboy Action Shooters, civil war re-enactors.

  1. Impressive Review by
    I looked for a long time and finally decided to take the plunge, I read mixed reviews online and already have plenty of big bowies but I'm happy to say my example sits firmly in the positive camp, It's a big knife by any standards but not overly heavy or badly balanced, the blue is uniform and deep even under the handle, all grinds are even, the point is needle like, the blade gives a nice ring when flicked near the edge, (always makes me smile when a blade does that), you can tell it's hand made but obviously by people who know their stuff.
    PS, be prepared to spend half an hour degreasing it, it comes smothered in sticky preservative grease.

  2. Great knifeReview by
    A beautifully crafted and well put together blade. Not only does it look great, but is a good all round heavy duty camp knife. Incredibly pleased with this tool for the price.

    And as always, fantastic delivery on the part of Heinie (came the next day from ordering)

    The finish on both handle and blade is superb .
    Absolutely no imperfections on this knife .

  4. My resurrection knifeReview by
    Two years ago I was sat in hospital trying to recover from a huge heart attack and coma. I bought this using my iPad and made the wife leave it unopened. This was my goal - to make it home so I could play with this knife.

    When I got home this was waiting for me and I've loved it ever since. A ridiculously big package at a very fair price. My hands aren't huge but this monster fits perfectly and feels "right".

  5. Very deserving of 5 stars!Review by
    Fantastic craftsmanship, well built, and stunningly beautiful as well.
    This thing has a really huge intimidating blade that could give Crocodile Dundee a run for his money.All of the steel is very nicely blued and comes with a healthy coating of grease to make sure it arrives in perfect condition. I was a little worried that square handle would be uncomfortable but it's actually not bad at all.
    It's a far cry from the cheapo Chinese stuff. Definitely worth buying.

  6. Hard use toolReview by

  7. Respect!Review by
    Much like Stan, I was in two minds also. I'm not a bowie fan normally but I found this to be immediately compelling, probablyy due to the retro "replica" appearance so I went ahead and ordered one. Arrived in HH's usual double quick time and when I unpacked it to find it covered in grease and made in India I thought " oh no, what have I done", just spent my hard earned on something I could have picked up for nowt in a Spanish coastal gift shop? It wasnt even sharp! But wait a minute, cleaned it up with WD40, stroked it a few times with a chefs steel and OMG, this is one serious blade! It looks stunning, inside or outside of that amazing sheath, a huge amount of knife for the money. Get one, dont judge too quickly, you'll love it soon enough! Thanks HH (Posted on )

    Just a footnote; After just watching the walking dead on T.V. it occurred to me that this knife would make a great Zombie ******.. (Posted on )
  9. Something ElseReview by
    I was in two minds about ordering this knife but went ahead and bit the bullet. Am I glad I did.
    My wife cannot understand it when I call a knife a thing of beauty she thinks I'm being weird, this one was nearly grounds for divorce as I instantly fell in love with it. ... After a little stropping the blade was razor sharp and actually pierced my finger on the needle point tip, the size shape and lines, and the black carbon finish really do make it a thing of beauty. The quality of the sheath is unbelievable for the price, thick well stitched leather, its a joy to handle. came in time for a little camping trip to Snowdonia with a few other idiots who enjoy extreme discomfort who were well impressed with it. The handle on mine had a nice grain figuration on it and its beyond me why anyone would want to tape it up but each to his own...

  10. Handle ModificationReview by
    I have one of these 1917 Frontier Bowie's. I use mine. I found the smooth wooden pistol-grip handle to be "adequate", but not great. So I modified it. I wrapped mine in "tacky-feel" self-adhesive tennis/squash/badminton racket handle grip-tape. The result is most gratifying ! (Posted on )
  11. Well impressed!Review by
    Received my 1917 frontier bowie today prompt as usual. Many thanks to all at Heinnie.. From seeing this advertised to opening the box I knew I had something very special and I’m not disappointed. Very well packaged and wrapped, once all the grease was cleaned from the heavily blued carbon steel blade and the wood pistol grip handle was given a little polish I could really appreciate what I had got. Solidly made, well put together and the sheath and frog I am more than pleased with, a fully functional period bowie knife, almost razor sharp out of the box. This will certainly take all the abuse you could throw at it and more. Great solid knife.
