The Vest Pocket Bowie is part of Bark River's historical series of knives with a heritage that dates back to the early 1830s. This mid-size Bowie knife is versatile, handling thick vegetation, breaking down firewood, and animal quartering with ease. It is very reminiscent of the New York made Rose Blade pattern but with a more compact 5.5" blade. The handle is the genius of Bill Moran. His style is world famous and very comfortable and functional in the hand. This knife comes in A2, a hearty, resilient, and very durable tool steel that is sure to last you a lifetime.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
