This will be a versatile 10" bowie blade of 1075 Carbon Steel that will fill a niche in my collection.

I like it.

It will be here on Tuesday. Yes, I am absolutely positive that this knife will be a favorite.

The knife arrived a day early and I am impressed! It has "everything you need and nothing you don't". The clip-point on this Bowie is "tougher than whip leather" and is surprisingly light. Fast in hand, with a .25" spine. Brute strong, but "shaving sharp". Trust me, this one is a "keeper".
