Pros: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Materials, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Made in USA means a lot
This is a large Bowie knife made for hard use. It's designed well, constructed for reliability using excellent materials, classically executed and will serve well for a lifetime of use. My only criticism here is more of an observation: the bone scales on my knife shrank slightly leaving a minute ridge of handle tang along the hilt. I would prefer a finer fit. Another is that the sheath needs to be riveted or pinned for increased safety. Stitching a knife sheath is not as safe as one bearing rivets. So, I pinned mine with steel nails for extra safety, having had sheathes fail before. That said, this knife and scabbard are fine tools that deserve praise, plus they're American made. Thanks for reading.
