  • BO02MB565: Giant Bowie
    Boker Magnum

    Ranch Hands.

    An interpretation of the legendary Vietnam style Bowie, with impressive dimensions. The 440 stainless steel blade features a precise grinding and is extremely sharp. The guard and pommel are made of polished stainless steel, and the genuine leather handle features soft finger grooves, which tops off the overall looks of this classic piece. Includes leather sheath. Overall length: 12 5/8". Blade length: 8 1/8". Weight: 11.6 oz. Made in China.
    Leather Sheath
    Leather Sheath
    Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.

    Combat Boker Magnum Bowie
    This 440A SS knife is patterned after a similar design that was actually used by US Army Special Forces in Vietnam-IndoChina. Ironically-The original was made in Taiwan-while this Boker was probably made in mainland China. The reviewer is a combat Special Forces veteran. It is fairly priced if you can locate one at the lower priced spectrum. One detailed review shows that it may not be full tang from the blade-but uses possible screw stock.Mine was not at all loose-so did not disassemble the handle. It would not hurt to fully bed the extended metal from the blade through handle in quality epoxy. That being said, if you could arrange it-a solder line at the joining of the blade and pommel guard would be good. I have had 3 of these knives-none are loose in the handle-guard area. Randall knives feature this solder line and it stabilizes the guard to blade. Its extra work but it might be worth it. All noted, this is an average knife for the price-not bad.

    Boker Magnum
    I enjoy using this knife. It has a great blade, weight, and length. I just wish it came with a better material for the handle. The finger grooves are not deep enough, and it gets very slippery and hard to hold when used for wet work.
