Cold Steel president Lynn C Thompson proclaimed that the Drop Forged Bowie is one of the best minimalist bowie-style knives he had ever held. Inspired by a blade in Lynn’s private collection (made by an Arkansas-based custom knife maker) the Drop Forged Bowie is one of the smallest bowie style fixed blades we’ve ever produced. It features a stiff, sharp 6.75-inch clip point blade, sturdy guard and a very comfortable drop-style handle – all drop forged from one solid piece of heat treated steel! Lynn went on to say: “This is everything you could want in a mini bowie, and it’s fast as can be! I love this knife!” The Drop Forged Bowie is sold complete with a versatile and secure Secure-Ex sheath, allowing for a wide range of carry options.
