Down Under Knives / The Outback Eclipse Bowie Knife

Because black is the new black.

The Outback™ has always been our most popular knife, and the most upgraded throughout its lifetime. Whenever we find a way to make it even slightly better, those changes tend to inevitably end up in the next production run. However, all along this development cycle, one recurring theme kept coming up - granted, mostly from people who had never used one, but it's a valid point nevertheless.

What if we didn't just offer improvements... but a choice?

Well, that choice is here today. Meet the Outback™ Eclipse - the proven Outback™ design in 1095 carbon steel and all dressed in black. The handle is all leather and dyed through in deep black. It comes with the same improved Mark II sheath design as the latest classic Outback™, only in black. The solid brass guard and pommel feature a high gloss polish, and the 58-59 RC heat treated blade guarantees it's every bit as rugged and dependable as its stainless steel sister we all know and love. It may look slightly more fashion conscious and you might find yourself oiling it a bit more often, whether it's entirely necessary or not... but it's still guaranteed not to slip on a turtleneck and wander off to sip a latte when there's work to be done.
This completely redesigned black leather sheath comes as standard on all new production Outback Eclipse™ knives.
Overall length: 16”
Blade length 11”
Blade thickness: 6mm
Weight 800 g / 28.2 oz
Material: 1095 Carbon Steel heat treated (edge 58-59 RC / back 45-46 RC)
Solid brass guard and pommel, ebony & leather handle
Genuine leather sheath with sharpening spike
The original Outback™ sheath was always pretty good for its time, but over the years it has been getting increasingly eclipsed by our later models. Now, we don't exactly subscribe to the idea of knowing when to stop, so our improvement program eventually came up with a completely new design - bigger, better and more badass in every conceivable way, not to mention several times the cost to produce. As this second generation model completely transforms the Outback™ package and translates to a slightly higher MSRP for new model knives, we figured it would be only fair to make it available separately so existing owners can upgrade without purchasing a new knife.

Key improvements:
- Bigger, stronger, more rigid construction: up to 50% heavier than early model
- Full hand braided leather edge
- New, more distinctive tooled crocodile skin pattern
- 2" longer, wider and heavier shank and belt loop allows the knife to sit lower on the hip
- Longer and heavier retention strap now goes clear across the knife, making the snap button much easier and faster to engage and disconnect
- Longer honing steel sits in a separate leather tube, braided into the sheath's construction rather than formed from the same leather piece
- Bigger, completely redesigned "Croc tooth" ornament pieces that actually resemble crocodile teeth
