PRATHER WAR BOWIE

***AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW***at TOPS Knives.com
RETAIL PRICE: $229.95 INTRODUCTORY PRICE: $199.95

Jeff Prather War Bowie

The Prather War Bowie’s blade is a massive 7 ¼ inches long and a nearly
unbreakable ¼ inch thick, and the blade is purposefully wider than others
to create a more devastating wound channel. The overall length is 12 5/8
inches, allowing a generous grip that accommodates large or gloved hands.
And whether the operator’s hands are bloody or frozen, Top’s Knives’s
patented micarta Rocky Mountain tread grip slab handles offers the ideal
combat hold.

The War Bowie’s classic sweep and forward balance point naturally,
facilitating cutting and chopping. The unique dropped blade forms an
integral safety guard that makes it impossible for the operator’s fingers
to accidentally slide forward and be cut while stabbing with forward or
reverse grips.

Thumb grooves on the spine add extra control for fine cuts. A sharpening
groove at the base of the edge eases sharpening in the field. The Prather
War Bowie’s false edge delivers superior penetration when thrusting.The
War Bowie comes with a custom black nylon tactical sheath, featuring a
sharpening stone pocket, plus a free Lansky sharpener and emergency whistle!
The War Bowie was designed by former 7th Special Forces, DEA Special Agent,
DIA Intelligence Officer, and Bujinkan martial arts master Jeff Prather.
Jeff also founded Warriorschool, a tactical training academy that
specializes in preparing discreet government agencies and specialized
military units for hostile overseas environments.

The War Bowie is Jeff’s ideal blade design based on his twenty five years
of real world experience both here and abroad. The Prather War Bowie – by
warriors for warriors!
