Timber Wolf's Limited Edition 2018 Independence Bowie echoes the very nature of America - it's big, beautiful, bold and, when pressed to action, overwhelmingly fierce. Its imposing, mirror polished 10 1/2" 3Cr13 stainless steel blade is deep acid etched with hallowed American symbols and slogans. Front and center, a commanding, shield-adorned bald eagle grasps both the graceful olive branches of peace and bitter arrows of war in his piercing talons. The stately raptor is flanked on each side by the sober-yet-sincere dictum, "There is no freedom without gunpowder," while founding father Patrick Henry's immortal words, "Liberty or Death," are emblazoned below. More than just a steel canvas for striking imagery, however, the robust clip point blade is carefully honed to a razor sharp edge and is more than capable of tackling even the most demanding field tasks. The vibrantly hued "stars and stripes"-themed handle is every bit as impressive as the blade. Expertly fashioned from natural wood and genuine bone, then exquisitely stained in vivid red, white and blue, the handle beautifully showcases our beloved "Old Glory." The delicate, pure grain of the wood and bone subtly peek through the rich colors, which are offset handsomely by glittering metal star insets and burnished brass guard. At 16" overall, the 2018 American Independence Bowie is a dramatic, eye catching showpiece, perfect for display in any setting. Housed in the included genuine leather sheath, it's sure to last a lifetime and beyond, making this distinctive bladed gem an ideal family heirloom to be admired and cherished for generations to come. Adding to its rarity and allure, each 2018 Independence Bowie is laser serialized with a unique number that denotes its place in this extremely limited, once-in-a-lifetime production run. Hurry and get yours today before they run out! And don't forget family and friends!
