Designed by Legacy Employee Joe Houser, a 30 year veteran of Buck Knives, the 901 Scarlet Scimitar is a large fixed blade that blends the styles of the American Bowie and the Middle Eastern Scimitar. It offers some serious style and with the extremely limited nature of the production it is sure to be a must-have for Buck Knives Collectors. From the impressive Bowie blade to the striking stacked handle of Micarta, Aluminum and white and red Lucite, the Scarlet Scimitar is truly something to behold.

Brand new item directly from Buck Knives.

The Blade: The blade is made from BOS Heat Treated 420HC offers great toughness and corrosion resistance with good edge retention, ease of sharpening and razor sharpness. A deep hollow grind would make this a devastating slicer. The blade, which is somewhere between a Bowie knife and Scimitar, is finished with an elegant machine satin and has a large sweeping belly that would make this a fantastic skinning knife if you can bring yourself to use it.

The Handle: In the classic style the Scarlet Scimitar bears an aluminum pommel end and double guard. Sandwiched between those pieces we've got some more modern materials that are sure to catch the eye: black Micarta with red and White Lucite mimicking a traditional stacked material pattern but offering a look that is stunning.

Legacy Collection: This limited run series features a mix of rare and modern materials and is limited to only 200 Serialized Pieces for the 901 Scarlet Scimitar. Glass Topped Walnut Display Box and Certificate of Authenticity included.
