    A Bowtie knife or a Bowie knife?

    A Bowie knife is a knife like Bowie's.

    I've heard of folders with small double guards built into the bolster referred to as bowtie knives...don't know if that is what he's after.

    that must be it, thank you! I saw a picture of what looked like a small version of a bowie knife that was an automatic folding knife. It was called a bowtie knife. regards,

    "Bowtie" usually refers to the shape of the "shield" on the handle of a pocket knife.

    It looks like a Bow tie

    A fishtail is a slip joint that is also called a bow tie.



    Though I never heard bowtie for it before.

    An auto that looks like that, I agree with Gary, it's probably called a stiletto.
