DUKCD: Down Under Knives Outback Hunting Bowie
Down Under Knives

The Outback™ features a forged, dual heat treated 440C stainless blade honed to a razor sharp edge. The back retains some spring to it while the edge has been made hard enough to withstand hundreds or thousands of cuts with no perceptible dulling. This is not a wall hanger - we set out to create the most devastatingly effective Bowie knife ever produced, and designed every detail like we mean it. Hack, slash, chop, cut, crush... This is one blade that will never let you down. We believe in putting our money where our mouth is, so we back this claim with a full five-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

The handle is skillfully crafted out of genuine ebony, leather and brass with an ultra-strong tang that will not twist or break in heavy use.

The solid, bead blasted brass handguard and pommel complete the distinctive look. The Outback™ is truly both a great example of the knifemaker's art as well as the most rugged, dependable tool an outdoorsman could wish for.

The Outback™ comes with a genuine heavy leather sheath patterned to resemble crocodile skin. The sheath features an integral retaining boot for the included high quality sharpening spike.

**Knives have a high mirror polish which may have slight scuffing from factory.

Pros: Blade Material, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
a good blade
So before I got my outback I looked at a lot of reviews. Some bad some great. All I can say is its a knife not an ax or hatchet. I've used the blade to take down saplings and to make small fire wood.. I plan on making a trip to my property up by Mio here in MI. To really test it out. The only weak spot is right at the end of the handle at the point it all screws together. Thats the only weak point that I can fine. So far it's a great knife a beauty that's not a wall hanger. I like the sheath but it could have been better made but still will do the job.

Pros: Finish, Blade Material, Handle Material, Materials, None
Cons: Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
disappointed
very disappointed! Pros: good materials, full tang construction and good fit and finish .Cons: quite sharp but far from " razor sharp", sheath is only quite good, very heavy. All in all more a collector knife than an outdoor " survival" knife for real use !!!
