My rating = 4.5. I find it hard to call this knife a "bowie" on account of it's diminutive size and double-edged configuration. More of a small "toothpick", this is a fighter-type in the class of the USMC fighter- more so than a bowie as we know bowies in US. Total length is 12.5 inches, the 8" blade is thinner than any bowie I've ever seen or handled. The blade back is ground to almost a full back-edge, but isn't sharpened, the spine is in the center of the blade, like a dagger. I was disappointed when I first saw this and almost sent it back, but it takes a wicked edge and seems to hold it well, better than some stainless I've used that seemed to dull just by being looked at. Sharpened easily on my stones, seems like a good steel. I've used it cutting meat and plant materials it slides thru the stuff, it CUTS! It is also a lovely work of knife-makers art well polished blade, quillion and buttcap, all stainless. The grip is elk or large deer antler with a nice grain- looks like sambar, the best antler, I've ever worked and almost impossible to get in the States. I've worked enough antler knife handles to know quality when I see and handle it. The sheath is nice quality leather, well-tanned and welted, double stitched, and well-done. Leather preservative darkend it a bit. The attention to detail on this knife is awesome and shows quality we are not used to seeing in many Chinese products. The ricasso is marked with "Dalian China" in VERY small letters, and "Rock Creek Knives" on the flip side, no "bill-boards" on this knife!. So far as I have tested this knife, it is worth the money and pleasantly surprising.. Having worked on knives and a lot of antler, I did "customize" it a bit by smoothing down the antler on my belt sander, fine grit and then a quick buff. Didn't NEED to do this but it is what I do and the grip now conforms to my hand and the antler is very smooth and "alive" feeling. I'm pleased over all, glad I bought it. My only complaint has to do with the dagger twin grind of the blade, which is why I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars, would rate it at 4.5. In my experience that twin grind COULD possibly weaken the blade by taking thickness and weight from the blade back. Certainly lightens it- not always a good thing. Am in the process of thinning the back-edge to sharpen several inches up the back. It is a beautiful knife and Im surprised at the quality/price factor.. quite a value from China, well made by Han Wei craftsmen. I carry a small belt knife frequently and it's either this one- or my Buck 120 and this one's prettier. The "Grizzly" has grown on me.. Time and use will tell the tale! Will definitely get another Han Wei knife, God willing.
Very nice sword,it was more than I expected.
This is what I expected in a nice tomohawk smooth balance nice apperance. well made structure one piece tomohawk. pricey but good material. the handel is a little thin but your not chopping wood with it. so very good buy.
Excellent product. Protecting my collection is important to me. This product does all that and more. Highly recommended.
