Popular Bowies for the Holidays

The holiday season is here! This time of year is often referred to as “the season of giving” because it really is a time to give to others and show them that you care. Unfortunately, choosing gifts isn’t always an easy task. Lucky for you, though, we’ve got a few suggestions here that would make for some awesome holiday gifts.

Here are some of our popular Bowie blades here at Blade HQ:



This knife is really stellar, and it’s super affordable. One nice thing about this knife is that it has excellent gripping in all weather conditions, thanks to the rubber overmold on the handle. Another neat feature is a carbide sharpener that is built into the handle—it unscrews easily from the base. You can’t go wrong with this blade; get it at Blade HQ!

Spyderco Street Bowie


Spyderco is loved by knife enthusiasts all over because its knives are easy to use and are typically very ergonomic. While most people know Spyderco for its folders, the fixed blades that Spyderco puts out are no less remarkable. Aside from the good gripping and the smartly placed finger choil, the Street Bowie also has an outstanding blade. The blade is made of VG-10, which is a very high end steel that is often referred to as a super steel. VG-10 has extra toughness, holds an edge very well, and has good rust resistance. Spydercos are always a smart choice; get this knife at Blade HQ.

Emerson CQC-13 (folding knife)


When you think of a Bowie, a folder is probably not the first thing that comes to your mind, but this Emerson is one Bowie you don’t want to miss out on. The handle is extremely ergonomic, and it has lightning-fast action, thanks to Emerson’s patented Wave opening system. If you’re looking for a folder that is sturdy, fast, and won’t disappoint, then look no further than the Emerson CQC-13.

Ka-Bar Large Heavy Bowie

ka-bar-fixed-02-1277-large-heavy-bowieIt’s all in the title of this blade; this knife is large. The blade alone is nine inches long, and the overall length is 14.25 inches. This really is a no-nonsense blade that just looks awesome and is sure to make you feel awesome.

These would all make fantastic Christmas gifts, but if you’re looking for more options, be sure go to BladeHQ.com.
