Down Under Mistress

Down Under Mistress

Description

Here's one that Down Under Knives has been working on for quite a while. The mission was simple: push the limits and make the biggest, meanest blade that can still be reasonably called a knife, without compromising balance and usability in the slightest. To accomplish this, they started with the dimensions and basic lines of a colossal vintage Bowie dating from around 1858 and started hammering out prototype after prototype until it looked and behaved exactly like they wanted it. Not the easiest or fastest development process in the world, but with a knife this size you just can't slap something together in a CAD package and expect it to work. You have to feel it to know when you got it just right.

The Mistress is Down Under's first curved back design, putting even more mass behind the arc of the blade right where it counts for unprecedented cutting power. To complement the shape Down Under gave it a distinctive coffin handle and a massive S-style handguard machined from a monolithic block of solid brass. In a slight twist, during development they decided to reverse the S to a style more commonly found in swords of the period. When you hold it, you'll know why - in this size class, it just works better that way. Finally, the signature heavy leather scabbard is patterned to great effect.

Reviews

  1. A Mistress which handles wellReview by
    Rating
    For a Bowie with a 13-inch blade, The Mistress is surprisingly well balanced and feels responsive in the hand. The knife arrived with an edge which sliced paper (though I can hone it sharper) and my first task of delimbing a branch felled by a recent storm showed Down Under designed this well and their marketing is accurate, not just advertising puff. Very satisfied with this purchase. It's a nice looking blade which handles well. (Posted on )
  2. It's a Mistress alright !Review by
    Rating
    As in expensive, nice to look at, very nice to hold but the wife will kill you when she finds out how much you've spent.

    Sharp and pointy to a fault, very polished finish and a classy looking sheath.

    Usual first class service from HH of course

A:
Good Morning, they are a very high polish but very hard to photograph, you can see the refelction just in the groove. The whole blade is finished that way.
