Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Material
Best Big Bowie for the Buck!
I've had a soft spot for Big knives since I was a youngster but never owned a Bowie style. I'm not the type of guy that can or will spend 100+ $'s on my gear unless it is absolutely necessary. To find a knife with the dimensions I wanted AND the quality I put a lot of time into research before purchasing this blade. It's HUGE!!! As big as the CS frontier Bowie but wider. My magnet tells me that it is a full tang knife and the injection molded handle is solid, a bit slippery, but totally functional, the sheath is pure Condor. It is very quick in the hand and takes a great edge. In the past couple of weeks I've chopped downed branches, trimmed brush for tree stands, made some feather sticks for fun (as big as it is the knife worked great for this.), and several other cutting chores. The only thing I noticed on this knife is a slight vibration when chopping but that was more due to poor angle than design. Whether you want an American styled fighter or something a step up from the CS bowie machete, Buy It. If you want a good no frills knife that will take a beating buy it. If you've looked at this knife but are on the fence BUY IT!!!!! Really a solid knife.
