Fans of the legendary Bowie knife will have a new, modern option available from cold steel with the introduction of the Laredo Bowie. This knife is made of CPM 3V steel, features a G10 handle, and a bronze finished guard.
New Laredo Bowie in CPM 3V Introduced by Cold Steel
Irving, TX – Cold Steel, manufacturer and innovator of purpose-built knives and blade tools for everyday carry, tactical, and hunting applications, takes the classic bowie knife to the edge with the all-new Laredo Bowie in 3V.
For sheer presentation prowess, the Laredo Bowie in 3V stands tall with its elegant lines, high-luster finish, accented guard, and rich, G10 handle. Beyond the form, the Laredo Bowie in 3V delivers serious function.
The blade is constructed of American-made CMP 3V—a super-tough, wear-resistant tool steel that can take abuse and keep performing. Good edge retention, chip resistance, and maximum shock resistance are among the qualities of the Laredo Bowie in 3V, so this knife doesn’t shy away from hard jobs. The 10.5-inch long, 5/16-inch-wide blade terminates in a dagger-sharp point and features a 4.5-inch semi-sharpened clip point that facilitates back cuts.
Dressing out the Laredo Bowie in 3V is a G10 handle with a satin finish bronze guard. The knife fits smartly in a complimentary black Secure-Ex® belt sheath which is Molle-Lok and Tek Lok compatible with a rugged adjustable Cor-Ex™ belt loop and retaining straps for a secure and reliable lock up when not in use.

A Texas senator recently attempted to make the Bowie knife the official state knife despite its origins. However, despite this, I find it fitting that Cold Steel is making the latest addition to the bowie knife lineup currently available on the consumer market.
