With a Bowie knife comes a sense of history and power, many legends have revolved around this type of knife. The Buck 916 Bowie has been offered over the years in select quantities to collectors through our Legacy Collection, but never before has it been offered to the public with customization options! Build your own Bowie that will be the highlight of your collection, a superb hunting knife or gift intended to become a family heirloom.
The 916 features a sturdy 7 1/2" 420HC steel blade available in mirror polish, mirror polish with custom filework, or satin finish. Designed to impress, the 916 Bowie knife has an overall length of 12 1/4" with many unique handle choices. It comes with a distressed leather sheath and the option to add on a wooden display box.
Please allow 4-6 week lead time.
Please note: When we make handles out of natural products, you will find nature's own "brandmarks." In most cases, these markings are not flaws, rather nature's own design. Each one will have its own personality and distinctive look unlike handles created from man-made materials.

Available Features and Options
This is Buck's standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add our exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
