I bought this looking for an edged weapon somewhere between my pre-existing survival knife and a pocket knife - just something to keep on your belt while camping, hiking, etc. Size wise, it does fit the bill. Like the others have said, it is a medium hardness steel and so won't hold an edge as well as a carbon steel blade. Out of the box, it is handsome, and threatening in appearance. The handle is simple, yet ergonomic for my small hands. It also has a hole drilled for a lanyard if you so desire - nice touch. The pummel is flat and therefore useless as a secondary weapon. However, it is well milled and firm. Being a partial tang weapon, it will be good for hiking, camping, general defense - everything I bought it for. For emergency use as a shovel - NO. The blade, out of the box, had a reasonable edge. In other words, it was a good start and not impressive, but after 20 minutes on my bench, it was a force to be reckoned with. I've never had a larger, non pocket knife with a combination smooth and serrated blade, but I have had success with a combo pocket knife, and so I thought I would give it a try. In sharpening the combo blade, it was initially challenging to get an edge at the blend point where serrated meets smooth, but it was workable. Overall, not a bad investment at all for a blade under $20. I can see this lasting quite a while.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

It's a nice knife out of the box. Sharp but remember it's a cheaper steel and not full tang. If your using it for simple tasks, perfect knife. Survival knife, I wouldn't bet my life on it.Would you recommend this to a friend? No

I just got this Bowie today and got a little time to try it out and check over it. The size is fantastic of both the blade and the handle (which is very comfortable to grip). The sheath itself may be the only thing in my house to withstand a nuclear blast- it is tough! Holds the knife well. For under 15 buck I am VERY happy with this purchase.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Reviewed by Ocala Jack from The Wild West on 16-Feb-2014Great converted thrower
Rating4 star4
Converted 3 of these into throw ers by replacing the heavy butt plate with a split ring to hold the handle in place. This gave it an excellent balance for both no-spin and handle throws. I've hurled these beauties for 2 years without so much as a broken tip. The only drawback is that they are too pricey. Throwing weapons are ammunition not heirlooms. But when BudK puts them on the 2fer sale making them less than $7 then they are a super value. Happy throwing.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Rating4 star4
This knife was exactly what I expected when I ordered it. It did come with a great sheath and I nice big handle which I like because my hands are pretty big. The only Con I can think of is that the blade was unevenly sharpened which can be easily fixed. Nevertheless it's a good buy for what you're paying for.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I bought one of these knives to carry in my tool box while on the road. I use it to cut trailer seals, cordage, and strapping and to pry nails from tires. What attracted me to this knife was its construction of synthetic materials. Leather sheaths and stacked leather handles soak up moisture and eventually rot. And its stainless blade means that rust won't be a problem. I like the "tanto" design because it concentrates more of the force of a thrust into a point on the axes of the handle than a drop point blade does. The pommel has a hole for a lanyard so another use I can foresee for this blade and its scabbard is as a dive knife if I ever find a time to go diving without my usual gear. I'm going to buy three more for my daughter, my wife, and for me to carry in our car trunks as an "ignored until it's needed" knife.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I have the KA-BAR clip point version of this knife, and i have a friend with this one. After using KA-BAR's, i know that the KA-BAR is most definitely the superior knife, with not only craftsmanship, but materials. the KA-BAR is made of D2 steel (one of the hardest metals youll ever find in a knife) and this is stainless steel. but i do feel like if your paying 13 bucks for a knife, youre gonna get what you pay for, you could buy about fifteen of these for the same price as the $172 KA-BAR D2 Extreme, so 13 bucks is pretty good for this if you ask me.Would you recommend this to a friend?
