Description
SPFB04PBB: FB04PBB Street Bowie
Spyderco
 
The Fred Perrin-designed Street Bowie, like the Street Beat, features Perrin's distinctive index-finger choi, which serves as an ingeniously effective alternative to a traditional guard. Unlike its smaller counterpart, the Street Bowie has a longer 5-1/8" blade and an injection-molded FRN handle with high-traction Kraton rubber inserts. Spyderco has reintroduced the Street Bowie with a non-reflective ceramic coated blade. This version is paired with a redesigned injection-molded polymer sheath equipped with the versatile G-Clip attachment.

Cons: None
Spyderco Street Bowie
Very light knife meant for tactical or light duty use. Very sharp out of box. Outstanding sheath can use with or without a belt because the belt clip has such tight retention.

street bowie review
Good knife, great balance, only problem i have with the knife is the handle is a little slippy, especially the bottom of it, i think some aggressive jimping would of worked great here, unusual maybe but as its primarily a tactical knife why not? The sheath is good but i think the design of the g-clip is terrible, yes its multi carry system might be a good idea but the tongue on clip is too long for inverted carry, it hits the top bulge in the sheath, im gonna cut the tongue off mine, terrible, also its very difficult to actually clip the sheath on or take back off track bottoms, havent tried it on a belt yet but i know its gonna be the same, the problem is there is no give on the bend on the clip, its way too ridged, maybe it will soften but i doubt it, its designed to fit a narrow belt but you ll be quicker taking off the belt to get it on and off, my knife was shaving sharp outta box, great delivery time from knifecentre, ordered from Europe 25/11 9-30pm arrived 28/11 12-30pm- amazing!!

I love it !
I was looking for an EDC knife, mainly for SD. The Street Bowie has the right size and and weight that permits concealed carry. It's 5" blade is the right size (long enough to make a difference, small enough to be concealable), VG-10 is easy to maintain and tough enough for anything realistic you could do. It's a no-nonsense design, I like that. The ergonomics are nearly perfect but I don't really like the look and feeling of the handle material even though it's grip is steady and smooth and quite good in reverse. Really good balance too. The finish is neat and clean, it's flawless, the blade is sharp enough for a day-to-day use, but not for shaving (use a razor blade, silly). The sheath is allright and I like the G-Clip attachment, three cons though : - it's a bit noisy when you draw the blade ; - they use torx screw and ; - it lacks holes for an horizontal carry configuration. Anyway, at this price it's really good knife you can count on.
