Bowie Knife Selection

Probably one of the most memorable movie quotes of all time came about when “Crocodile” Dundee scoffed at a mugger's switchblade saying, "That's not a knife." After pulling out his Bowie knife, Mick exclaimed, "THAT'S a knife!" Originally designed by Col. James Bowie, a Bowie knife describes any large sheath knife. While it may not be everyone's self-defense weapon of choice, a Bowie knife is an excellent hunting knife. In addition, their handsome appearance makes them favorites for collectors.

The Silver Stag Big Bowie is a beautiful knife. As a collector, I know a quality knife when I see one. I only have one issue with this knife. The metal snap on the side of the sheath scratches the blade when removing or inserting the knife. The scratches were on the knife when I received it. A knife of this quality should have a sheath that totally protects the blade...

Very good, functional knife. I like the authentic look and feel of the knife. I have been using an authentic Panawal from Nepal when I need a functional hunting knife for large animals. I will take the Bowie with me on my next hunting trip back to South Africa.

THE ULTIMATE MALL NINJA! Awesome. Big globs of solder around guard. At least it's fixed in place and not a rattling guard. Would actually hurt someone so be careful, but this thing is so ... how else do you say mall ninja? I really would not want to be in the woods relying on this knife for survival though. Doesny seem structurally reliable for abuse. It is exactly what I expected and I am very happy with my purchase.

this one is balanced to ride on the front of your hand (forefinger area) & is Sharp right out of the box{made in China; but whutthhell} I am very pleased with this thing, wire wrapped handle is comfortable. I have even opened letters with it. I wear it on th belt around town (perfect fashion accessory) well constructed sheath will serve for many years. Haven't tried to shave with it yet. was very useful trimming up an old aqualung sheath to strap it on th leg during scuba. I plan to dive with it on the leg. I believe it's the perfect knife of this size. Great edge to start honing on. hope it survives seawater.

everything it's advertised to be!!!!!

Nice knife, great blade, feels good in the hand!

By Steve W.

I like the blade, nice and sharp, but with my big hands the handle doesn't feel right like it is not meaty enough.

Was able to put a real nice edge on it. Looks cool and feels good in my large hands.
