“Under-The Hill” was the notoriously rowdy riverfront district of
Natchez, Mississippi at the beginning of the nineteenth century. So
disreputable, it was seldom mentioned in the polite drawing rooms of the
antebellum mansions that dotted the other side of town during the era
when cotton was king.
The Natchez Bowie was born “Under-The-Hill” and takes its pedigree from
those seedy taverns and dimly lit streets. Line-bred for battle, it’s
the definitive fighting Bowie. Its long blade is perfectly shaped for
strength, reach and leverage, and its significant heft is flawlessly
balanced, giving it unparalleled liveliness and velocity. Combine all
that with its wickedly razor sharp edge and you have a knife that
pierces like a dagger, cuts like a razor and chops like a cleaver!
The very best in materials and workmanship is what makes performance
like this possible. The blade is made of vacuum heat-treated VG-1 San
Mai III® laminated stainless steel. It’s costly and difficult to
fashion, but the resulting blade it yields is virtually indestructible.
The handle also plays a big role in the overall performance. It has a
double quillion guard, bolster, and pommel made of highly polished 300
series stainless steel and a gorgeous black linen Micarta handle. It
will easily accommodate a wide variety of gripping methods while serving
as a very formidable impact weapon as well.
To compliment the Natchez Bowie and to further cement its position as
the quintessential fighting Bowie, it comes with a traditional black
leather scabbard. Made of the finest leather, it’s beautifully stitched
and reinforced with nickel-silver rivets. It also features a thick
nickle-silver belt peg so you can slip it in your waistband or under
your belt without fear of losing it.
Features a 11.75 in. blade of VG-1 San Mai III steel, and a 5.38 in.
black linen Micarta handle. Comes complete with a leather sheath.
