A contemporary tribute to humankind's most ancient tool

The Art of Fire, of pounding a lump of metal over and over again, in the tremendous heat of the forge, inexorably forcing it into shape and submission to create the one tool that truly defines the human experience – it is as ancient as time itself.

As much as each knife of The Jim Bowie Collection is a testament to the millennia-old tradition of knife making, it is also a witness to the advances made since the first spark flew in the forge.

The Jim Bowie Collection is the fusion of ancient and modern, of strong and subtle, of rough and beautiful.
