The Knife Junkie / Hogtooth Knives Collaboration Knife (NoVA-1 EDC Bowie)
The NoVA-1 EDC Bowie Knife is a collaboration project between The Knife Junkie (Bob DeMarco) and Hogtooth Knives (Matt Chase).
The NoVA-1 EDC Bowie Knife is a design collaboration between Bob DeMarco of the Knife Junkie Podcast and ABS Journeyman Bladesmith, Matt Chase of Hogtooth knives. Inspired by the Hogtooth Knives EDC Tanto, a fixed blade knife that’s easy to carry in the uptight environs of Northern Virginia (NoVA), the Knife Junkie decided to call this EDC Bowie, NoVA-1, in honor of the D.C. suburbs.
The 3.5” 154CM Bowie blade reflects the spirit of the traditional Bowie, delivering effortless cutting and thrusting performance with its hollow ground main edge and zero-ground swedge. The slight recurve adds to cutting efficiency while allowing for years of use and sharpening focused at the belly.
The handle ergonomics of the NoVA-1 and overall package are based on the Hogtooth Knives EDC Tanto, a fixed blade knife consistently featured on the Knife Junkie Podcast due to its ease of carry, robust usefulness and utter charm. NoVA-1 features polished deep burgundy linen micarta handle scales with forest green liners.
The Kydex sheath is a taco style, minimizing the overall footprint of the NoVA-1 and creating snappy, rattle-free retention of the knife. A thumb wave on the sheath aids in the discreet removal of the blade. The Discreet Carry Concepts clip keeps the sheath firmly anchored where you put it.
Changes will be made to the pictured prototype:
- Knife Junkie Logo will be reduced in size to fit on the flat of the blade
- Each knife will have a unique series number
- Jimping will be moved up the spine toward the swedge
- Handle liners will be forest green
Clip the NoVA-1 to your pocket or waistband and know you have it covered, from cutting string and cardboard to defending life and limb. Each knife is hand made by Matt Chase in Massachusetts where he proudly makes knives at the forge and the grinder from 100% USA materials.
The NoVA-1 EDC Bowie Knife, carry a sharp piece of history with you every day.
