This Ridge Runner exclusive is an elegant bowie knife that combines stainless steel construction with a dark hardwood inset for performance and perfection, creating an elite knife at an unbeatable price. The 10" full-tang, stainless steel blade is razor-sharp and the handle features intricate scrollwork etchings and detail. A durable nylon sheath is included.
I purchased this Ridge Runner Bowie knife about 2 months back , and also the Executive Bowie . I , mys , are a K Bar man . Thats been my number one blade the past 38 years of hunting, fishing, camping and foraging. I decided to explore new knives . I am very impressed with the Ridge Runner Bowie , I have put this blade through hell , chopped saplings , split maple post by “hammering “ with a Rock on the back side . Dug into the ground during foraging trips , cut rope , cut aluminum, plastic. Cleard brush , hitttrocks along the way. Skinned deer , lamb and butchered several chickens . It sharpens up in 7 minuets ready to go !!! Handle is Still sturdy , nothing coming lose . I’m going to order couple more , just to have for gifts. Great Knife , who called this an “un interesting cake knife “ This is a Survival Knife !
I purchased this as a companion to the smaller Executive Bowie. The wood handle is flawless and looks beautiful. I had both engraved which looks great. It's a tad on the light side for a Bowie this large but it does fit the hand well and comes with a sharp blade. I bought it for looks, not function and for that reason it is magnificent. I highly recommend this. LJP
My granddaughter is and always has been gun and knife crazy, so I bought her this Bowie and the matched set of (small) Bowie and two folders for Xmas. She loved 'em. What's more, so did I. I'm a big fan of Bowies and, particularly, of BIG Bowies and this one qualifies (tests in the 1980's by the US Army found the Bowie the best fighting knife blade shape, which is commensurate with my own experience). It's beautiful and functional (and will go perfectly with the handtooled leather belt and holster set I have - once I have made a matching sheath for it and a matched carry case for one of the folders). I have now succumbed and got the same set for myself and plan on taking it into the woods when I go exploring (lots of big, bad critters out here and even a big bore revolver only has six shots).
Knife arrived quickly and was amazing out of box!! the knife itself is enormous!! definitely worth buying!!!
FINALLY CAME IN TODAY . I BETTER SWITCH TO UPS SHIPPING . ELEVEN DAYS IS ABOUT LIKE HONG-KONG SHIPPING ! NOW , AS FOR THIS AMBASSADOR BOWIE KNIFE , I LIKE IT ! MOMMA ROSIE LIKES AS WELL .
Like bill I have 2 of the smaller version the other half uses it as her skinner and loves it ,the reason for the purchase is to make a piggy back Leather sheath for a friend who is 6 foot 6 and this thing will be lost on his hip he is one of the few people I know who can strap on a monster knife like this and not look like a child with his new toy .
I had puchased the smaller version and was very pleased with it, so I went ahead and bought the larger version too. This is a great well made knife, a beautiful handle and it has a great feel to it, if I would change anything about it, I would add more of a gaurd at the handle than this has, it comes off looking like a fancy cake knife without that gaurd but the price is right and the quality is soo good I give it a 5 star anyway.
As a fan of cheap bowie knives, I am sampling Budk bowies and tyhis one is another winner. very classy, but also a full tang design, makes this one a thrwing knife for me. The next ones will be Christmas gifts for people. Very nice at twice the price.
This is a great companion to the RR elite bowie. It is of course much larger and heavier than the elite but the family resemblance is unmistakable. Mine arrive in flawless condition and has impressed everyone I've shown it to...especially when I tell them how little I paid for it. The sheath is only marginally better than the one with the elite but it works for the time being. Over all, it is a great deal on a very solid, very unique looking blade.
When I purchased this knife it was called the RR 'Ambassador Bowie'. This knife is much lighter than my 'Western Outlaw Bowie', therefore, much easier to handle & control. Beautiful w/precision-machined parts that fit seamlessly. Though the handle has the same appearance as the 'Executive', it is larger, overall, in proportion with the larger blade. Not for use as an ax, as the 'Outlaw' can be used - different tools for different jobs - but a beautiful knife and nice weight and balance. Though she would look better in leather, at this price she's a steal.
I have to say that after reading the previous review I was worried about the quality of this knife. I bought it as a gift for the best man at my wedding, and one for myself. When I unwrapped the box I was afraid because the boxes they came in were crushed. However, the knife was untouched and the sheath, though cheap, was in good shape. The knife comes in the sheath with a plastic covering on the blade. When I picked up the knife I could tell from the weight alone that it was of good quality. It was much bigger than I thought but I am a big guy and can appreciate a big knife. It is very sharp and has a nice edge on it. for a knife that only cost 2 twenty dollars, I am comfortable saying that I would assume it cost around one hundred dollars. All in all I am extremely satisfied with my purchase, as I have been with everything I have bought from BudK.
While the blade is a little on the plain side, the handle is exquisite looking. It came out of the box sharp and with no flaws. The reason for the 4 star rating is because the handle is a bit on the boxy side with sharp corners.''Which is a very small matter. Overall, this knife is very handsome and quite large, and the price can't be beat.
Just bought this knife .Large heavy knife good blade but dull out of box . Sheath not right for this knife that's my biggest complaint . You can get better from Ridge Runner if you look and for better price . Gave this knife a 4 .Good knife if it's what you are looking for will make a great show piece .
The ridge runner ambassador bowie has an excellent heavy blade and can't be bettered for the price. The handle,however,is flat and not round the way it looks in the photo. This is good with me because I make hand wrapped handles for knives. This is also a formidable knife considereing the blade length,4-5 inches and then a twist is all that's needed.
I had previously bought the executive ,and was very pleased with it.So I thought I would try the Ambassador.It too was very good. I also bought the folder, Extremely good. They are all similar and well made. I got all of them with wood inserts .Will buy the other two with the plastic later .I am a custom knife maker myself and was mildly surprised as to the quality of all three of the knives. I make custom sheaths, so the crappy sheaths didn't bother me to much. I plan to make a modular leather sheath that can hold all three. But that also can be separately worn. A neat project. The 4 star rating is only because of the sheathes.
The Ridge Runner Ambassador Bowie is a uninteresting knife. It isn't a bad knife,but it is also not one you'd brag about either. If you can get it on sale or buy one get one,go for it,otherwise pass.
the grip is a bit to small for my taste. i prefer bigger grips for more handling. this is a bummer. the is well made and the blade is sharp like h**l.
I was some what dissapointed with this item. I thought, from the picture of it presented here, thaty the handle would be thicker than it is and that the scroll work on the handle would be more pronounced than it was. It is full tang, and fairly sharp, with plastic inlay, instead of wood, in the all metal handle. It is OK as a novelty item, at a good price, yet I would not buy it again, since the handle is uncomfortable for my grip.
The knife looks great and is sharp. however the handle is flat and does not fit the hand will at all.
Ordered to make a set with smaller version waited with great anticipation. when it arrived today. was packaged badly. when I open the box. tip of the of the knife very badly bent.in the proces of returning. Which is a bummer now it will be weeks before I can get my set complete. if the replacement is in any better shape fingers are crossed.
