A Master piece Reviewed by Steve Carusone on Apr 26, 2014   5 out of 5

Huge knife easily the largest knife I own. It borders on short sword. Definitely not for small hands. The craftsmanship is outstanding. The blade and gold plated parts have a nice polish right out of the box. Hard to find anything wrong with this huge piece of steel. One little minor glitch. I just wish it came a little sharper from the factory. Definitely recommend to any knife collector.

Almost Perfect Reviewed by Mike on Jan 10, 2014   5 out of 5

From the moment I saw my first "primitive Bowie" I was hooked, and of course, Mr. Hibben has beaten all competitors by far, at least as far as production knives are concerned. This one, from China, weighs in at 2lbs. 3oz., while the nest heaviest is from Pakistan at 1 lb. 10 oz., followed by 1 lb 4 oz. from India, etc. The only thing that keeps me from giving this weapon unqualified praise is that I feel slightly cheated by the the "Expendables Bowie", the same knife with an updated hilt to fit the movie as is also the case with the two versions of the "Toothpick". It's hard to justify the extra cost, thus "Shame on you Mr. Hibben or United Cutlery or both, as appropriate. For an older collector on fixed income it's hard not to feel a little betrayed. As to you, Bud K, outstanding in all areas so thank you!!

The Best Knife I ever bought! Reviewed by Bruce Perrone on Jan 30, 2013   5 out of 5

I just received this knife today! By far the best bowie knife I ever bought! It is truely a large bowie, and it is very sharp. I can see why Jim Bowie was feared for his knife if it was as big as this one. It would make anyone cringe with fear if they so someone coming at them with it! History says, Jim Bowie died at the Alamo with his knife in his hand, if this is so, he would have done a lot of damage to those he fought with till he himself was killed! I can only say. wow what a knife!

WOW! Just won this knife! Reviewed by Gene Wells on Sep 21, 2012   5 out of 5

I just received this knife, won in a sweepstakes from Kennesaw Cutlery! This knife is UNBELIEVABLE! It is a MONSTER--razor-sharp blade and needle-sharp tip. I can't believe people routinely carried these in the Old West. Even Crocodile Dundee would have to admit--THIS IS A KNIFE! Kennesaw Cutlery has definitely won my heart! What a wonderful surprise!

Beautiful Reviewed by NCNOLOC on Feb 20, 2011   4 out of 5

First off I must tip my hat to BudK for their prompt delivery and fantastic prices. My first purchase from the catalog and I will most definitely be a returning customer. Now for the knife review. It is truly a large knife, those being the only I prefer, I was extremely happy with the weight also the edge was not sharp out of the box which I must say thank you for allowing me the opportunity to put my own on it. However for all this knife's positives there is one big negative. It is absolutely beautiful and thats about as far as it's usefulness goes. A truly gorgeous display piece with a sheath that is also a piece of eye candy. It feels like it could stand some use. It can't. Put it on the shelf and gawk at it along with any others who see it and go a different and likely cheaper rpute on your large bowie if you intend to use it for what it's made for.

This a a real knife.

wicked cool Reviewed by Sidmanification on Dec 25, 2010   4 out of 5

This knife is just great i just opened it for christmas and was immediately struck by just how heavy this beast is the spine itself seems like you could pry a flywheel off a chainsaw with this thing just holding it seems like a lot of work and i'm stronger than the average bear i would have to guess it weighs about 6 pounds but feels so right in you hand.

This is one fantastic knife. Great blade, nice leather sheath and good weight. An absolute steal for the price. Blade definitely resembles the original Bowie.
