He he, I paid $15 for a "Brian Wilhoite' (Made in Pakistan) wall decoration.tonydahose wrote:i want one of these. I don't want any dumb etching on the blade. Big is good but i am just having a hard time narrowing it down. I like this Randall but it is too pricey . i also like this Russell but i am sold on it yet. I would like the knife to made with a good steel and able to cut well even though it will probably be more for display , just being truthfull. What do you guys have? pics would be great. I wish spyderco would make one but i haven't heard anything in the works and most knives that are in the works are a few months to a few years away.
i actually love the blade on that one except for the gold guard? on top of the spine.The Deacon wrote: Almost ashamed to admit it, but the one I like most right now is this puppy .
i like that one too.The Deacon wrote:the cocobolo version of this one is kind of nice too
that one is nice and i wish did make one, maybe i'll start a thread on the other forum to see if Sal has any thoughts on the subject.Pinetreebbs wrote:Seriously, I have been looking at the A.G Russel California bowie with ironwood scales. If Spyderco ever made a bowie, my decision time to buy one wouldn't take a nanosecond. The bowie is an iconic American knife.
those are very nice.2cha wrote:I have a Bark River Coffin Handle Bowie. Knife is great, though I wish I'd bought one with some kind of guard. Very, very well ground in O1 and can be found for reasonable prices.
i looked at the cases that are available now and didnt like any.yablanowitz wrote:Aside from wallhangers, I only have two. One is an old Western W49 that I've had for near thirty years with a carbon vanadium steel and the other is the Case copy of the Collins Marine Raider. Both of them smoked the Forester in a side by side cutting test.
I believe that piece is soft brass and the idea behind it to snag you opponent's blade in a knife fight. Have a hunch it's one of those things that works a lot better in theory than in practice.tonydahose wrote:i actually love the blade on that one except for the gold guard? on top of the spine.
that is a beautiful knife. that is what i am looking for but i think i want the handle with the lil turn down at the end. the i keep thinking i want to try building one from scratch but i really don't what i am doing but if i somehow pulled it off i would appreciate it much more than just buying one.Argento wrote:I made this one a while ago:
Steel ist O2, 10 inch blade, black g10 (polished) handles with red fiber, coffin shape of course
enjoy the pics
thanks but i think those knives are a bit too small.krajos wrote:I might be regreting this, but have to share it with you.
Check out these two beauties from Bark River...and they are priced just right!!

I don't know if either of those theories are true, but the extra weight does make it chop better. My Case with the brass spine cover cut much deeper and faster than the Western without it, even though the Western has a thinner edge.Dr. Snubnose wrote:The Brass on top of the spine is not really to catch an opponents weapons but to add strength to the blade....Doc
