It also has a soft liner to protect from scratches. The factory leather sheath is also included. All pictures of knife and sheaths are the items you will actually receive. This is easily top 2 in regards to blade grinds, even lamination lines, and handle polish. The edge grind isn't perfect, but I've yet to find one that was.A really nice example of this knife. NOTE: The knife appears to have an orange tint.
This is just ambient natural light reflecting off the color on the walls. Rest assured the knife is not orange. 5 3/8 Long 300 Series Stainless w/ Black Linen Micarta."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. Cold Steel's 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. 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 quillon 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 complement 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.
