Down Under Outback Bowie

Down Under Outback Bowie

£146.95

Description

The Down Under Outback Bowie is a stunning fixed blade knife, that is like nothing you’ve held before! Featuring a forged, dual heat treated 440C stainless blade with a stunning mirror finish. It may look extremely nice, but don’t mistake this for a wall hanger, it is a workhorse, and a highly effective cutting tool. The Down Under Outback Bowie really is a knife with a purpose.

The handle of the Outback Bowie is crafted from a mix of Ebony, Leather and Bass surrounding strong full tang construction. Complete with sturdy, polished, bead blasted Brass pommel and hand guard which not only look great, but also offers great protection and comfort for your hand.

In addition to the knife. The price also includes the new MK II leather sheath which has a number of improvements upon the previous version:

- Bigger, stronger, more rigid construction: up to 50% heavier than early model
- Full hand braided leather edge
- New, more distinctive tooled crocodile skin pattern
- 2" longer, wider and heavier shank and belt loop allows the knife to sit lower on the hip
- Longer and heavier retention strap now goes clear across the knife, making the snap button much easier and faster to engage and disconnect
- Longer honing steel sits in a separate leather tube, braided into the sheath's construction rather than formed from the same leather piece
- Bigger, completely redesigned "Croc tooth" ornament pieces that actually resemble crocodile teeth

"...THIS is a knife..."

The Perfect Bowie?Review by
10 10

Took the plunge about two months ago and purchased this huge behemoth of a knife. I was a bit apprehensive with the handle being made out of brass, wood and leather, as brass naturally being somewhat smelly as is compressed leather but it turned out the brass hardly ponged at all. Covered the leather grip with black 'Wilson 2018 Pro Overgrip' for a fantastic non-slip rubbery grip, looks cool also. The guy's at Down Under have really done an excellent job of designing and finishing the complete package to a very high standard. The only fault I could find was a minute ripple in the mirror finish running across the lower cutting edge and you really have to look closely to find it. Great knife, sheath and steel + bones! Would definitely recommend. (Posted on )

Recently bought the Outback Bowie, as a first time customer i was not disappointed, with the knife or the service. Five stars for both, was kept updated with postage details, knife arrived within two days. Out the impressive box alone, the Outback was razor sharp, this knife is the real deal and i honestly don't know how the sell for the price they do, i would have paid a lot more for this knife. I have always wanted a Dundee Bowie, and this knife is everything you would want and expect from a Dundee. I cant recommend and praise Heinnie Haynes and the knife enough. If you buy this great knife you will not regret it, or the service Heinnie provides. As for the leather sheath, again, cannot be faulted, top quality. Will be buying again soon, many thanks.

I would like to compliment you on your service from the advise that order had been received, then dispatched. Received the knife the next day as expected.

Very please as The knife is excellent quality and a pleasure to own and hold. Was sharp enough to slice through paper out of the box. The sheath is also great quality a snug fit on the knife and ive got it sitting in front of me as I type because it has a great fresh leather smell.

All in all excellent product and service.

I don't know how down under supply their knives at the price that they do. I watched a youtube video where an expert took a knife blade from dull to a mirror finish and just the last stage at the buffing wheel took a very long time, hours of work from start to the end product. The knives seem to be hand made as the brass work varies from one knife to another. No doubt they outsource, but if these knives were made in Europe they would cost a few thousand pounds each.
The build quality is very good, and the aesthetic appeal of the knife is excellent with the beautiful ebony and leather grip set against the well shaped brass work. The blade really is a good mirror finish. It feels great in one's hand with a very well shaped grip. The latest sheath is nice, using heavy duty leather that looks the part, I personally have disgarded the sharpener and fake teeth as I think that improves the look. This is no wall hanger it is a very capable powerful cutting tool, or a collector's item depending on what you want.
My only critisism is that the knife was not sharp out of the box, I have a tooth pick and that was paper sharp out of the box, but of course it is easily rectified with a bit of sharpening, either on a stone or with a sharpening system.
I am very pleased with my purchase.
Great service as usual from Hennies and Richard the manager who gave me some great tips for sharpening this knife and others that I have. Quality service is wort h returning to, so Hennies are my supplier now of knives and equipment I can thoroughly recommend their level of service, and speed of delivery is second to none that I have come across anywhere else.

I don't think this is sold as a copy or replica but I've always wanted a Mick Dundee knife and now I have one that's just as good, I think it is actually a little bigger than the one in the film (although I'd like it a little bigger again :D) It's pretty sharp out of the box but not razor sharp, the sheath is a bit poor quality but you soon forget about that when you draw out the knife. Be sure to oil it up if you store it for a while as it can tarnish easily. I bought mine for a bit of a novelty collectable and conversation point but there's plenty of reviews on youtube where they're being used as a bush/camping/survival knife. (Posted on )

Great looking knife but let down in certain areas. Once opened I realised I could do more damage with a spoon, not the honed razor sharp edge as promised. Also, the quality of the sheath is poor, two different coloured leathers thrown together with a rusty chainsaw file, not a high quality sharpening spike in my eyes. Not all doom and gloom as the sheer size of it and beautiful handle make up for it. Can't justify the price and won't be buying from this manufacturer again. HH fulfill their great expectations though :) (Posted on )

The OUTBACK BOWIE is an awesome knife to say the least.. Well made and balanced. Very sharp knife even out of the box. Should serve as a work tool very well. The addition of a sharpening spike is well received so you can keep the cutting edge up together. The sheath seems to be strong and well made. All in all an excellent bit of kit. A Good Quality knife and value for money. Well done HH for an excellent service and product also a quick delivery service. Your staff are as usual very helpful. 10/10 (Posted on )

I have had mine about 3 months & I would like to say this knife is perfect as a large bushcraft companion to add to a regular Ray Mears type of knife due to it's ability to cut & chop much better than the traditional smaller bushcraft style knife. I have chopped wood & cleared paths through bush with ease. The balance in the hand & weight is perfect. I would say it is a bit too big for fine carving, but good for most jobs out in the woods & about the camp. In other reveiws I note the sheath gets low marks but mine is fine, the leather is thick & strong & double stiched. The sharpening spike works well. My knife needed a good sharpening though as it was not super sharp out the box. This took a good couple of hours to do on my set of good quality oilstones, the steel being very tough. It is now shaving sharp. To conclude a great knife that will last a lifetime. You will not regret buying one & in comparison to other large bowie knives is remarkable value for money. (Posted on )

This Bowie is amazing. It is better than a Machete at cutting and chopping and as good as a skimming knife at skimming. This knife is really the Apollo of all knives. It is the perfect example of function and form brought together to create a knife capable of doing anything you want it to do. Just pick it up and it will do the rest this knife is worth every penny "that's a knife" (Posted on )
Love it!Review by

Awesome knife! The fit and finish was perfect from the get-go. The blade has a mirror polish which is very well done. The ricasso is concave on edge-side, so you're able to finger the guard and really choke up on the grip when doing any fine detail work. The false clip edge is sharpened, with a convex edge, and no secondary bevel. Fullers are symmetrical and even. The handle is great to hold: fits my hand perfectly in a number of grips, and the combination of materials results in a grip which doesn't 'hold' your hand like rubber would, but still gives enough purchase even when my hands are sweaty.
What is more, although they don't market it as such, Downunder have succeeded in creating the most movie-accurate reproduction of Crocodile Dundee's knife out there!
The scabbard is a joke. Totally serviceable, and the sharpening steel is a nice touch, but the croc skin decoration is naff.

My Brand New Down Under Red Rock Raptor Came Threw The Post On A Sign For First Class It Was In A Big Box With Lots Of Foam To Pad It Out,
Upon Opening I Was Amazed At The Shear Quality And Effort That Had Gone Into This Tool.
Its Finish Is Mirror And The Edge Of The Blade Is A Good Angle And Sharp, But Not As Sharp As I'd Like It Too Have Been But Then Every Knife I've Ever Brought Has Been This Way. If You Are Thinking Of Purchasing This Blade I Can Honestly Say This Is Well Worth The Moneys I'm Even Comtemplating Selling All My Other Knifes As They Are Likely Too Become Obsolete Now I Have My Dream Raptor. Anyways Upon Chopping It Cleanly Cuts Deep Into All Woods And Still Not A Scratch On It. I Have Yet Too Sit Down And Put A Real Paper Cutting Edge On This Blade But I'll Be Posting A You Tube Video On My Thoughts. Cheers Hennie

I soaked the handle in vegteble oil as reccomended and 2 days after the wood in the handle started craciking. the cracks arent huge but still....crack quickly formed.ni hand sharpened it to shave my arm but still the edge is too steep for chopping duties.

First of all, I was surprised the general quality of the knife. The balance is something else than the other similar heavy weight bowies, you can actually use it, and I?ve been using it. The sheath is made of thick leather that can bear heftiness without problem. Only thing that I had to was to resharpen it, it wasn?t dull but not too sharp either from the box. Best buy for the money for a long time. (Posted on )

This is not a good knife! The grind was bad upon arrival, the blood grooves were out, the back grind was off and the handle so poor it broke after 40 minutes use! The sheath is an absolute joke. I am a tree surgeon and rely on my equipment, I would not rely on this knife. And there is some question as to where this knife is made as their own website admits it is made in Asia yet it is allegedly made in Finalnd!! Steer clear and spend real money for such a knife!

The craftmanship isn?t great, the handle isn?t perfect, you can feel edges between the brass spacer and wood, no big deal but should be perfect for that price.
I don?t like the angle of the edge of the blade, to wide for my taste and it?s hard to do cutting. Very hard. I doubt those who say they have skinned animals with it. And it?s not razor sharp. But if you change the edge it will probably serve you well for many years, hopefully a lifetime. The sharpener thats follows is very good.

Hi there
tested the Outback for 3 months while beeing hunting in Namibia. I did everything u can imagine with that knive. Chopping, cuting, finishing. The Knive itself is over the top. Even the handle didnt move in dry conditions. But the sheath is totaly crap in every aspect. It was destroyed after some weeks of working and wearing it. When someone knows where to get a rly nice sheathfor it plz dont hasityte to contact me cause this knive deserves a thick and well made sheath.

Truly excellent knife,razor sharp out of the box,maintained edge and only needed sharpening after 4 days of hard chopping.Very disappointed in the sheath and doubt it will last a year,perhaps overkill on the glue to make up for poor stitching,the brass pommel has started to loosen too,the back of the blade is not use able to throw sparks of your ferro rod,but overall as my wife says there's nothing better than a BIG chopper!! thanks heinnie for a great website and delivery service.

Holy fkucing Shti What a knifeReview by
First off, incredible service and delivery from Heinnie Haynes, super packing and fast and furious delivery. Awesome.

Now for the knife,,,they were inspired when they made the knife, incredible unit,,,HOWEVER,,they must have been on crack or sniffing glue when they made the sheath. They should have made a far better quality sheath and charged more for the entire setup. Again,,the knife is sweet. Great overall buying experience with Haynes,,I will be back.

best wishes from Sweden

There are some issues with the marketing claims, as differential tempering is impossible on an air hardening steel like 440C.And the "tests" don't actually test anything, but apart from that it's still a huge hunk of steel for the money, and let's be honest, we'd all only buy the knife to fondle and say "That's not a knife......."

Really nice knife, well balanced, sharp..
but the sheath is not adequate to the knife. its not heavy, its swinging while walking and it doesn smell like leather, more like glue. i got two sheathes, one of puma, one of bîger, both made of heavy saddle leather, that would be good. but this one, no.
however, the knive is evil.

Express delivery in less than 17 hours.
Well balanced, exceptionally sharp (shaved my arm as good as a razor). Handled tree trimming a treat, up to 1.5 inch branches in 1 chop, 2 inch with 2 chops! Simple to clean, and still razor sharp after an hours chopping. Good to cut with, size not a hinderance. Comfortable grip, decent sheath. Overall first rate, gonna save for the KOOKABURRA next!

A knife from a modest companyReview by

I state the term "modest" in the title, as the company who make this knife, have simply deffered from making any referment to this knife's association with any cinematographic promotion, primarily it's usage in the film "Crocodile Dundee". Close scrutiny will tell that this IS that knife, though many other companies lay a stake to this claim; Linder from Germany for instance, who's "Crocodile Hunter" is far from being the exquisite bowie that's sold here from Australia.

A:
We source all our Down Under knives directly from Down Under themselves so are fairly confident that quality is spot on and consistent. If not any defects will be dealt with appropriately. Its difficult to comment on reviews you have read but please be sure that we only sell goods that we ourselves would be happy to receive.
