The Bark River Mini-Rogue is a Scaled down version of the Rogue Bowie. That particular model was Bark River's version of the first real Bowie Knives made in this country. The period was 1827 and the place was Natchez, Mississippi. The very time and place that Jim Bowie came into world prominence for his rough fight on the Vidalia Sandbar. The Sandbar was just south of Natchez, Mississippi and local blacksmiths began to answer the request for "A Knife Like Bowie's." The Rogue Bowie was done in the early Natchez style and Bark River's was sized from a vintage example in the Arkansas State Museum that has been credited to early Bowie maker, James Black. This smaller companion blade is just as capable yet much more easily carried. It comes in A-2, a hearty, resilient and very durable tool steel that is sure to last you a lifetime and is supplied with a leather Mountain Man Sheath.
