―Inventory Description

The Bowie Knife is a cosmetic knife that was released in the February 17, 2016 update for Operation Wildfire.

OverviewEdit

The Bowie Knife is cosmetic only, and shares the same performance as the default knife.

TriviaEdit

  • The Bowie knife was created by James Black in the early 19th century for Jim Bowie, who had become famous for his use of a large knife at a duel known as the Sandbar Fight.[1]
    • Coincidentally, the Bowie knife was added to the Global Offensive after the death of rock star singer David Bowie, who was named after the knife.
  • The knife is officially called the Bowie knife, but all files refer to the knife as the "survival bowie."
  • The design of this knife is modeled after the real-life AITOR Oso Negro.
  • Due to the way Valve has re-sized the case-hardened texture for the Bowie Knife, the chances to get a completely blue Case Hardened Bowie Knife are much higher than the other knives.
