Whilst browsing on the Blade HQ website, I happened upon this gem:
This is the BlackHeart Knife & Tool Valkyrie Bowie. I really like this knife because it’s got the sweet clip-point blade we all know and love, but it also has some flair to it. The knife has a really neat, eye-catching handle with textured Micarta. I don’t know what it is about the texturing on this handle, but I dig it—a lot. The pattern is a custom 3D machined diamond grip pattern that is functional and comfortable.
The overall length on this Bowie is 11.25 inches, and the A2 blade is 5.75 inches long. The weight is 5.64 ounces, so this is no wimpy knife. BlackHeart Knife & Tool puts each knife through an extensive “triple heat treat and cryogenic quench process” before it’s ground freehand. This Bowie is also made in the USA. What more can you ask for in a Bowie knife?
This is a high quality knife right here. Get yours at Blade HQ!
