Are bowie knives legal?

Knife laws vary based on where you live. Some states have restrictions on the blade length you can carry. Practically any knife can be considered a concealed weapon under some circumstances. Always check your state and local laws before purchasing any knife you intend to carry often.

Do bowie knives make a good survival knife?

While a bowie knife can be useful in a survival situation, you may still want to have a smaller pocket knife or multi-tool on hand for some tasks.

Should I get a bowie made with carbon steel or stainless steel?

If you live near salt water or tend to slack on maintenance, stainless steel is a better option for you. Carbon steel holds an edge better and is not as brittle as stainless steel.
