Often glorified in movies and books, the life of the cowboy involves a lot of hardship – and more than enough hard work. In addition to the already countless heath hazards that presented themselves throughout the work day, 19th century cowboys had to deal with threats from Indians and rustlers. Many carried boot knives in their tall cowboy boots both to lower their risk of injury while dealing with their horses and generally to be able to move more freely. Such knives allowed them to take care of their incidental workload.
Our Cowboy Boot Knife is a high quality replica of the American boot knife. Its narrow shape and handy size of 25 cm makes it ideal for stowing in a pair of work boots. The curved blade of carbon steel has a false edge on top that takes up about a third of the total blade length. Made of hardwood, the polished grip is riveted to the full tang and separated from the blade by a wide hand guard.
A sheath of leather is included upon delivery and is reinforced with metal on both sides.
