a bowie is a good knife, and really they are a great field knife too, they do not have to be a fighting knife primarily. like the tomahawk they are good for utility work as well as fighting that's why its my favorite

Here's my carry knife for my little forays into the woods. I also carry a small razor sharp skinner. I made this one using a blade from eithr Jantz supply or Texas knifemakers supply. Don't remember where I bought the blade. It has a Diamond wood handle, and a brass hand guard I made from brass bar stock. I also made the sheath.

I had a WWII USMC Hospital Corpsman's knife... an 18" bolo that weighed in at about two pounds.

It was too unwieldy, unless you were literally chopping down trees with it. About the only thing it was good for was to split kindling, and I actually prefer a small hatchet for that job.

So I sent it off to a friend for some alteration. It has both a leather sheath with pistol belt hanger, and a modern Kydex sheath.

It's currently on my web gear :thumbsup:
