This IRWA Chapter 72 knife is an old Bowie style knife which has a 13 ¼” stainless steel blade highlighted with brass guards and a walnut handle for an overall length of 18 7/8” long. A leather sheath is included. On one side is the Minneapolis Conference 2020 Logo and on the other side is the Dakota’s Chapter 72 Logo along with the words “Blue Skies” in honor of our departed IRWA friend and colleague, Ted Williams.
A Bowie knife is a pattern of fixed-blade fighting knife created by James Black in the early 19th century for Jim Bowie, who had become famous for his use of a large knife at a duel known as the Sandbar Fight. It also was used as a hunting knife and has a stout single-edge with part of the back edge curved concavely to a point and sharpened.
