Really nice knife. Good weight and balance. To quote Crocodile Dundee "now that's a knife".
The American Classic Bowie, Got mine today,it's made in Pakistan, OK, the Pakistanis make some really good affordable cutlery. And his knife is a good sample of budgeted Pakistani work. The blade is A-1 good, full tang out to the edge of the grip, and a good fat hard wood grip to match...!, would be even better if it were a bit longer on the grip. But then you see the cost saving methods in production . First the guard is made from thin, soft brass that you could bend by pressing your thumb on it, it looks to be glued on with a slight tack weld. Unfit for this nice blade. Then there's the sheath, it's a great sheath till you get to the belt loop and strap which are made from a thin strip of leather looking like it was for a much smaller knife. Over all this $12 knife could have been made much-much better for $19.99 like the Timber Rattler Western Outlaw Bowie Knife, my favorite in the Big Cheap Bowie Knives here...

Great Bowie! excellent if you are looking for a classic style knife. My only complaint is that the guard is a little bit thinner than the guard in the picture, other then that great knife that is an excellent addition to my bowie collection!
I purchased this one as a throwing bowie, and as festivities wound down upon the day the Bud K shipment arrived, spirits were high and cheer flowed all around. I was standing directly in front of Chris's motorcycle at the edge of the parking lot, and my daughter had just opened the main door to join us outside when I reared back and put all I had into a long throw at a tree on the other side of the yard. In that precise moment, it became apparent that there was a clothes line quartering the yard, and the guard could be seen hung up upon same, finally releasing with far more power than anyone expected. Chris, astride his bike, snapped his head to the side so as to avoid seeing what happened. My daughter gasped out an expletive deleted and slammed the door rather than see anything further. As for myself, I was hit with tremendous force in the solar plexus and one thought went over and over in my mind. "If one is stabbed through the heart, the wounded individual may be aware for up to four minutes as the brain slowly depletes the oxygen" All I could think of was that if "I SAW THE HILT PROTRUDING FROM MY CHEST, IT WAS GOING TO BE A LOOOONG FIVE MINUTES." Thank you Bud K for selling me a knife that hits butt first!!!!!!
This is indeed a classic "Bowie" knife. It has a wide, expanding blade with a top swaged tapered clip. The body is heavy enough to chop branches, and the tip is aligned nicely with the wooden handle. It has a full tang and nicely riveted wooden handle. Overall, it is a robust, well balanced tool with superior craftsmanship. I bought this knife as the beginning of a knife collection for my grandson, and it is destined to be the star of the collection. The sheath is good quality leather, well stitched. It would be better with some rivets, but that is the only improvement I see possible. Beautiful, powerful, impressive!
Let's talk about this knife honestly. It's a BIG Bowie knife! Quality is only fair. My knife does show a really nice blade and scales. The hand guard is made of very thin brass. and it was loose on my knife, so loose that it rattled. It is so thin that very little pressure will bend it. I had to superglue it to the blade to stop it from rattling. The knife is hefty enough that I believe it could cut a small sapling down with no problem. Let's examine the sheath. It's okay leather but uses a rubber spacer all along the outer edge which is too thick. The cut of the sheath is too big, so much so that the knife doesn't have any resistance to keep the knife from rattling around in the sheath. The belt loop is made from really thin leather material and the retaining strap is even thinner. This strap is not secured to the belt strap, so it moves freely in the slots which makes it very difficult to unsnap. The strap is too long to be effective, when snapped, there is too much room around the hilt that the knife will slop around in the sheath. I like a sheath which hold the knife secure and snug but will still draw with easily. I removed the strap and then placed it down nearer to the hand guard of the knife. I then riveted it in place to the inside of the belt loop. It now is the right size to secure the knife in the sheath. Since it is now secured to the sheath, it is easy to snap and unsnap. I guess the old saying is true again, "you get what you pay for!"
Very plain looking, as a traditional Bowie should look I guess. Not real well made but not junk but I wouldn't buy it again.
I loved this knife as soon as I got it.It was too sharpened on one side when I got it but with a little bit of inginuity and some help from my uncle it got there. The sheath on mine was good but on mine the snap broke off but I just used my trusty paracord to lace it back like I mention in another review on the army 1942 fighting knife. The blade was long and had a great point on it and the handle fit my hands very and for a kid my age I have big hands and the full tang made it awesome as a throwing knife but I'm not very good.All in all a great knife. Thanks.
