I love this knife! Great feel and weight. Like others said, the sheath isn't great, but I didn't buy it for the sheath. It's a very nice all purpose knife that I really like having around.
Not really a GIANT Bowie, but larger than I'd imagined, nice hunting size, great feel, great look, even better after I polish it. FINALLY, a knife described as razor sharp that was actually sharp. Reason I took away one star, sheath is really soft thin leather composite, very thin, very tight, knife will easily cut right thru the front or back if not reinserted gingerly, and the retainer strap was so short it barely reached enough to snap it. That will stretch over time, but the sheath should be replaced with something much much heavier for a knife of this size and shape. Any good leather shop should be able to make you one if you can't find one readymade. Made in China, but overall a comfortable and formidable blade, just needs a quality sheath.
First off, let me say that this is a very attractive knife. The blade looks very nice and has some styling flourishes that set it apart from other Bowies in it's price range. The stacked leather handle looks great, feels really good in the hand, and the finger grooves provide a nice secure grip. Even the finger guard and pommel cap look really nice on this one. I'm not sure how long the tang is, but given Boker's reputation for quality, and the balance of the knife itself, I'm pretty sure it's full length. My only complaint and reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is the thin cheaply made sheath. Since I bought this as a display piece for my collection, I can do without a heavy duty sheath, but if I were actually carrying this on my belt or pack, I'd want a better sheath, even if it meant paying a few bucks extra. The tiny sharpening stone is really unnecessary, although for on the fly blade maintenance in the woods or wherever, I suppose it could be more convenient than carrying around a full sharpening system. I wouldn't go so far as to call this a giant knife by any means, it's a pretty average sized Bowie. By and large, I'm happy with the purchase. The blade is very attractive and stylish, but at a price point that you wouldn't be afraid to beat it up if you're looking for a workhorse as long as you can make or buy a more durable sheath.
This blade has style forged into it. It is a very nice quality blade, very sharp, feels good to handle. It isn't a GIANT, by any means, it is a nice hunting and fishing knife. The stone is a nice touch. Yes, as noted I didn't buy it for the sheath, which is adequate for protecting the blade and your fingers from damage. But just looking at the blades refined shape is amazing. This has a certain flair to it that is unmatched in other knives. It is functional and serviceable, guts fish just fine. Cuts rope and canvas easily. I am a person that uses the right edge for a job and this one is great for fishing and skinning. NOT a tree chopper, although it most likely will do the job, get a heavy bladed knife for overall camp use and hacking firewood.
This is a great knife. It came sharp, right out of the box. The quality of the blade and handle were excellent also. The snap on the sheath broke after only two weeks, but otherwise, it was a good purchase and would recommend.
I got the knife in, and I loved the look and feel of it. However I was instantly wary of the cheap plether feel and general appearance of the sheath. My suspicions were confirmed when the snap on the holder broke off first thing within the first hour. I thought about sending for a replacement, but I figured it would be replaced by one of the same quality. If it weren't for that this would be a 5 star for sure.
Not as big as I expected, but it's well made and strong. Feels good on the hand, and looks good, but not so pretty that I'd be afraid to put it to work. All at a great price. Thanks, BudK!
Fantastic knife, quality through and through. Sharp as can be, beautiful design. This is a beautiful knife I am proud to have. The sheath is lower quality but adequate and will protect the blade from accidental damage or from putting your finger in the wrong spot, the sharpening stone is a nice additional item. I will have to break out the leather tools and make a new sheath worthy of the blade.
Never ordered from Budk before, this blade was my 1st purchase. I have to say I'm impressed, a very beautiful knife and it seems to be well made. The blade is sharp but not razor sharp, which I'm okay with. The sheath is well made, the only flaw is the strap for the handle, couldn't get it to snap properly. I knew this before I made the purchase, because of the reviews(thanks guys for your reviews) WOULD I do it again HELL yeah! Actually my wife wants one, but she can wait. there R other knives I want to buy.
This knife is absolutely beautiful. It feels heavy and appears well made, but I can't get over how fabulous it looks.
It seems almost naughty to use a knife of such beauty instead of displaying it... however I am not the display sort of guy.
The snap strap on the sheath is extremely tight. Until that leather stretches, you have to turn the strap just right and use a lot of effort to snap it closed.
