Badass Knife of the Week: Spyderco Street Bowie

No knife is more equipped to navigate the mean streets than the latest Badass Knife of the Week. The Spyderco Street Bowie is a tough knife that’s been optimized for military and personal-defense use through its power and versatility.

Although Spyderco is known for its folders, the Street Bowie was one of the company’s earliest fixed-blade collaborations because of how well it fit into the ethos of the brand.

The design of this fierce knife comes from the mind of custom knifemaker Fred Perrin, who is a highly renowned self-defense instructor and a former French Army Commando among other things. He used his experiences to give the knife substance and functionality.

At an overall length of 9.38 inches, the knife boasts a 5-inch flat ground VG-10 stainless steel blade with a clip point for optimum penetration. Durable black ceramic coating also removes some of the reflective properties of the blade.

Its injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon handle features a deep choil that essentially locks your hand onto the knife for unmatched control and strength. The contours of the blade as well as the molded Kraton inserts offer a reliable grip, regardless of the environment.

After being brought back to the Spyderco lineup by popular the demand, the Street Bowie also received a completely redesigned sheath. Injection molded from polymer, the sheath uses Spyderco’s unique G-clip attachment, which allows you to carry the knife on a belt or inside the waistband. Similarly, it can be configured for all types of carry, such as vertical, horizontal, or diagonal.

Whether you’re looking for a durable knife for heavy-duty tasks or a versatile self-defense weapon, the Street Bowie is an easy choice.
