This Montana Toothpick has been created for the custom knife enthusiast who appreciates superb quality craftsmanship but understands it doesn't have to cost a fortune.
I’ve been wanting this knife for quite some time now and the wait was worth it. The knife itself is very streamlined but very old school. The handle is a beautiful hardwood and the blade is full tang. For collectors, this piece is a great addition but can also hold its own out on the field. I recommend this to anyone.
I love this knife. On inspection the handle is large and solid, the blade razor sharp. The one thing this knife deserves would be a good leather sheath. I recommend buying it. LJP
Last month I received this knife as my first "knife of the month club" prize! I'm impressed with the quality and the balance of this blade. Balance point is at the guard and assembly is of good quality. The sheath that comes with it is worth the price of the knife alone. I even liked the velcro keeper for the knife so you don't loose it from the sheath. My only issue is it wasn't very sharp when it arrived but my diamond sharpener made quick work of that. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for this type of knife.
Just got this bad boy in the knife of the month club. Super sharp and very well made. Thanks Budk!
Got this as my knife for the $9.99 knife monthly subscription and couldn't be happier. Once I seen the size of the package I knew I was getting something a lot better than a pocket knife and they continue to give me great items through this subscription. Feels very sturdy and came Sharp As a Razor out of the box. Very happy with this one! Thanks budk
This is one of the NICEST knives I own!! I liked the first one so much, I bought another one. I am considering about 4 or 5 more......
Definitely 5 stars. Not really heavy but great to work with. Nylon sheath, but it's nice and fits well. This is a keeper.
Gorgeous knife, and it slices brisket like a chef's blade. Would work nicely on just about any kind of meat, alive or dead. It looks like the price got bumped up a couple of dollars, but I would pay $20 for this, easily. A must-have.
I just recived mine and let me say i was blown away. While most of the reviews talk smack about the sheath but you aren't here to buy a sheath now are you? The knife is very very solid, mine came nearly shaving sharp, a quick swipe or two on a sharpener and you won't even need to buy razors anymore. Feels very nice in the hand, has a nice weight and the fixings aren't going anywhere. Honestly i would have paid $50+ for this and still would be very happy. Moral of the story, this is a must buy blade.
I ordered this knife on Tuesday, FREE Shipping and I got it the same week Friday, yesterday. It's a fantastic knife. I have many knives and swords, mostly Samurai, and Combat Commander. It's a great knife and I love everything about it. Wood handle is strong and mine is quite beautiful. Blade is flawless. Yes it had oil stains but came off by just rubbing my thumb on the blade. Very sharp. Thank you BudK.
This is the one that will go every where I do. Can not believe the fit and finish of this knife. The back has been ground to minimize weight,,but plenty back left to baton. The feel in my hand takes me to times long past. This was the fifteenth order from budk. One order included 15 knives. All orders included some. THIS is my favorite. Why would someone make this and give it away at this price?
I ordered five of these recently for my own use as well as to sell and I am really pleased. This knife looks really good, feels really good in my hand,and you can't beat the price! The only minor negative is the sheath because it's nylon and not leather and this knife deserves a good leather sheath.
This is a beautiful knife. I just got mine in the mail and can already say it was worth buying.
They have this Knife on Close Out . I just ordered my second .Buy it now it is one of the best Knives I have ever bought .Very Sharp out of the Box with a little stone time it gets Wicked Sharp . I really Love this knife feels great in the hand and is well built .Top of the Line and at the price you will not find better .Get one Now or you may never get the chance again . 100% satisfied .
This is a great knife at this price. Comes Sharp right out of box but with a little sharpening it will dry shave you. If your thinking about buying this knife stop and do it you'll be glad you did . On the 1-5 scale it's a 10+ .
Have on of these knives . Very good knife nice size and weight . Would recommend this to people who want a nice knife at a great price .
This knife is sharp! The weight on this knife is perfect. The handle is nice. Feels good in my hand. Someone complained about the handle being too big. That's crap. If your hands are smaller than mine, sucks to be you, but get a smaller knife. I love how old fashioned this knife looks. If I got stuck out in the woods or desert or something, I'd want this knife with me.
I actually love this knife. Very sharp out of the box and the look of it is just outstanding. I have a couple of the smaller knives in this same design line and I like them all very much. It looks so good that it's going to be hard to take it out and use it. It may just stay in my presentation case as part of my collection. I think the handle is just a tad on the small diameter side for my hand, but a knife handle is subjective to it's owner. Too small or too big just depends on you, but having said that, that one thing is not enough for me to deduct any points. It is after a toothpick style, which means long and slim. It fits that description nicely and for my money this knife is a bargain.
I recently bought the Montana Toothpick and it went way beyond my expectations. The full tang offers a great level of stability and power, the blade is razor sharp right out of the box. I am very pleased and satisfied with the knife and the great engraving job with my initials. Thank you Bud K.
This knife is very basic and solid. I love it because it is so light and nimble in the hand. Sheath leaves some to be desired. I'd easily pay 30 if it came with a good leather one. Also a good option for hog or bear hunting. Never know when they will get too close.
Great feel to knife. Great weight and size as well. Easy weild and easy to carry. Comes with a nylon sheath which I would have preferred a leather one but not a deal breaker for me. Comes fairly sharp right out the box and you can't beat the price.
I didn't know I like knifes until I bought two from Budk. Back then I thought Budk was just a other knife site. But not now. After a small collection I can clearly see that Budk is king. The last two knifes just blew me away. And I mean far away. I wont say the other knife because I may buy one for my fishing buddy after he's been drooling over a TR130 I pick up. And I hope there is one left. He will flip-out over the 2nd one like it. But this one. The photo here just doesn't do it justice. Mine came with a hint of red and just glossed all over, Not that it didn't fit like non other in my hand. In short, SOOOO, SOOOO pretty. My next two orders won't be knifes but Budk is kicking B**. Way to go. #1. You may need to hunt around for the knife for you but its here, they have it. And when you fine it. Wow! Best knife on earth.
Great knife, i like the curve of the handle. It is very comfortable in my hand. The two tone wood is also a nice touch, very nice looking handle. The blade is more than i expected it to be. I have a couple old Arkansas toothpicks and this Montana toothpick is far nicer in comparison and much stronger and sturdy! This is definitely going with me up the mountains every time i go to my cabin. I love this knife! It's a cross between a toothpick and a bowie and it looks awesome
I bought this to give it a try because it is about the same design as one of my favorite fighting bowies; what a pleasant surprise that it turned out to be such a nice knife! I wasn't sure what I was expecting, but the blade has a good edge, the heft is nice in the hand and it fills my hand without it being too much. Overall I am happy with this and plan to make my own leather sheath for it because it just doesn't look right in a nylon sheath.
My instant friend ship with this knife started with the fact the steel is AUS-6 I just like this steel have several with this steel just can't beat it for holding edge and sharpening in the field where it counts the putting together you just can't ask for anything better at this price ,it's just not out there in the knife world BUDK has my vote don't miss out.
This knife is waaaay better than expected. The steel is much harder than other similar stainless steel knives. The fit and finish I would rate as very good. While it came sharper than average it was far from razor sharp but after a suitable sharpening it is easy to shave with now. I am not only satisfied I'm impressed. And I own hundreds of knives and swords.
This is a great knife, especially for the money, you would expect to pay more for this quality.I like the tooth pick style knives, kinda like a thin version of the Bowie, this knife has that look and feel, its very solid and sturdy with a very nice wood handle and came pretty sharp. I would like to buy a larger version of this knife with a 12 inch blade. Please make one.
got my knife in today looked it over beautiful knife its sharp, light weight, its a perfect knife for me
A SHAME THIS KNIFE IS ON CLOSEOUT ! RECEIVED MINE A FEW DAYS AGO,GREAT KNIFE,EVEN GREATER VALUE, MINE WAS SHARP,LOOKS GREAT AND IS AMONG MY FAVORITES,GET THIS WHILE YOU CAN !
Had my eye on this knife for a while. Thank god I decided on buying it. Was much sharper than I thought. downright wicked!
Totally pleased with this Bowie! Very sharp out of the box and the fit and finish are top notch. Had it a few weeks now and it holds an edge nicely, even after heavy use. A++
Some bowies are way too big to really do anything with. This one is just perfect though. Quality steel and the curved handle is ergonomic. Sadly, the sheath is nylon instead of leather. But the nylon sheath makes the knife seem more like something that was meant to be at your side backpacking instead of just a cowboy showpiece. Much pleased.
I am very pleased with this knife. It was sharp out of the box, is well balanced and has a great feel. Craftmanship appears to be exceptional. I can't believe there is a better buy anywhere.
Blade and handle seem to be one piece, Mine is a solid knife! I'll customize it by rounding off the handle for confort, polishing the blade, and giving it an edge. I will also make a leather sheath for it. I'll put it to work on the homestead and wear it daily.
I bought this knife about a week-and-a-half ago and have been putting it through some rigorous tests ever since. I work for a local tree service and have been using this beautiful bowie in place of a chainsaw for removing smaller branches. It hacks through them like butter and has yet to go dull. It's quickly become my EDC. I read the reviews and knew that I would be getting a decent knife for the money, but I never expected it to become the absolute favorite of my collection. Trust me, take the risk and spend the $20, you won't regret it.
I was VERY surprised by this knife! The steel is thick and heavy (I like it). I was expecting to have to sharpen it when I received it, but it was already sharp as h**l! The blade and angles are dang near perfectly straight. Looks like a $100+ knife. I love it!
The Montana Toothpick is a great knife, razor sharp beautifully cut blade, the handle is made for comfort. I made leather sheaths for these knives. Thank you Daniel of Nebraska.
Great knife! Sheath could be better but if you want an excellent knife for this price go for it. I would just say change the sheath, Sharp edge and fits well in the hand. Velcro strap on the sheath doesn't cut it. put on a snap ring. If your going to sell a great product to Americans that care about product quality don't cheapen it by Velcro. All in all good buy.
My knife just arrived and I was thoroughly impressed. For the money, you can't go wrong with this one. I looked mine over and it appears to be virtually flawless. Best 13 bucks I've spent in a long time. The sheath is crap, but I bought it to build a custom sheath anyway. What it came with will work just fine until I get the good one finished.
Quite a nice knife. Arrived very sharp. Balances exactly at the guard. Looks well made. The sheath can use an upgrade, but it is sufficient to hold the knife. I am so impressed with this knife that I already ordered another!!
This knife arrived five days after ordering it on line - the quality was far above what the price suggested and I wish I could say the same about the sheath. The blade is .158 of an inch thick (4.04mm) and 8.250 inches long with a full tang, built strong and has a beautiful, smooth handle that affords a good grip even with the largest of hands. The knife is made in China but with excellent workmanship. Absolutely no complaints with the knife and it can be used both tactical or practical and any Army Ranger would do well to have this knife on his pistol belt. Texas has diamondbacks and sidewinders but Indiana has timber rattlers and two legged type sidewinders and this knife will take care of anything that comes across the trail. Can't go wrong with the knife however the sheath is an insult to this quality knife. It was a true bargain at $12.98 and with the special penny shipping - ha - a real steel steal! Buy it soldier. Happy trails.
such a great knife useful on thr trails and bruch country. strong enough to split small camp logs and just right for a short toss into our favorite little friend the diamond back hahahaha ive already had four perfect shots and its just wide enough that the snakes head gets cut off in one good throw but dont try this folks unless your used to camping in snaake country. the price is just so low for a quality full tang of this sort its crazy. i highly recomend this as a good looking and usefull trail knife. p.s. i guess its pretty enough to hang on your wall but down here in Texas we would laugh at you.
What a knife! It is huge and has some serious heft to it. For $10 bucks this knife is way beyond expectations. If you want a beautiful and functional knife for cheap this is it.
Another "keeper" here. Long, sharp, right weight for most anything you need a big knife for. Though I have farly large hands, it gripped well. This one is in my display....made a great addition to the collection.
Don't let the low price keep you from buying this knife. I expected it to be as cheap as the price but I was wrong. It is well made and sharp. I sharpened it till it shaves.
Bad**s bade indeed. Perfect balance all around, like it. I recommend it everyone perfect bad boy.
Man!! What a KNIFE!! This rascle is HUGE and sharp right out of the box. I HIGHLY recommend this bad boy to anyone. One of the best....so far. lol
This knife is a really good deal for 10 bucks. but honestly if you are buying this do not expect a 50 dollar knife it is a 10 dollar knife and thats what you are getting. now its a nice knife i love it. the picture does not do it justice but in person it is a lot better than expected. the pins holding in the tang or whatever. are...not of high quality and fell out when i was using it. so i just wrapped it in electrical tape. the handle that is. its a workhorse knife that you should not care about. just use it and if it breaks. get another. now the sheath..is okay its not very good and the velcro sucks. but h**l for 10 bucks its well worth it.
Bought this knife during the close out sale for 9.98. Best buy ever for a well-made knife produced in china. The blade was sharpened nicely for slashing & cutting, same goes for the tip. An overall all around fighting and utility knife to have. Balance enough to spin around my forefinger so it has potential to be thrown but only as a last resort. I would definitely recommend it to any chap I know.
Really nice knife especially for the price. I thought it was going to be smaller but it was actually quite large and hefty, needless to say i was pleasantly suprised by this blade and recommend it to all! You NEED this knife in your collection!!!
Strong design should do great for fighting as not front heavy like bowie. Thick blade lightened by shaping. Passes first test of a knife (I have one and ordered another for someone else)
I love it...sharp solid and smooth. The picture doesn't do it justice...a good lookin knife.
this is a great knife.its sharp out of the box and keeps the edge very well. i have had this knife for almost a year now and i have never had to sharpen it. the sheath is not the best its starting to brake a little but not that much that so you can see it.
All I have to say about this knife is it rocks. I cut through 1 inch branches with no problem and if you want this knife you should just buy it.
Quite possibly the greatest chopping tool ever used by man. I have used mine to chop down countless trees, some of which were about 12 inches thick. Sure, it took a while and was hard work, but afterwords the blade was still in great condition.
Awesome knife. It feels just right, the grip is very smooth and the blade is pristine and sharp right out of the box. Fantastic deal for sure.
As other reviews state, this is an awesome knife with a sub-par sheath. But at this price, I'll still give it 5 stars!
"Ordered one knife to review quality and was impressed with the fit and finish as well as the feel"" of the knife. Sanding and bolsters very smooth with a low luster finish. Ordered 2 more and gave them away as xmas presents to my two mid 30s kids for use while on camping trips. Bob in Colo."""
Oh come on! This knife looked nice in the catalog, but it is far more impressive in real life. The blade was finished just about as good with a style that impresses from first glance. It is very sharp. Functionally sharp. The handle is flawless and has a great shape. I usually like straight-forward styles but something in the look of this knife caught my eye. This knife holds its own in beauty and style with any of my knives that I paid five to ten times more for. This is one extremely impressive knife. I'm going to use it in the field, because it deserves that. I strongly urge anyone that wants a beautiful knife that is built well to buy this one. I'll be buying more as gifts.
I would have to agree with the other reviews on this one, it is an excellent value as well as a handsome kinfe overall. The handle is shaped very nicely to fit the hand and the materials used are finished in an excellent manner. With sturdy full tang construction it should serve very well as a camping companion for any chores you would need in that respect.
You can't ask for a better all around knife for camping or survival. Great balance and comes out of the box ready to use.
This knife has a perfect blade. Grind angle is totally consistent, no nicks or knurls and very straight alignment. Only flaws are in design aesthetics: the handle has a minor flaw where the spine meets the hilt, and on one side of the handle the brass wire is missing one, whereas the other side has two brass wires between the wood pieces. But the blade is perfect, and is pinned nice and tight into the handle scales, no looseness or rattles. I’d say it will be extremely functional, and unless inspecting it, the minor aesthetic flaws are not really noticeable. Perhaps for a collector, this would be a bigger issue, but ALL my knives are to be used.
The knife is well built and would definitely get the job done, but the handle is uncomfortable unless i have gloves. But overall a nice piece.
Upon receiving my two new toothpick bowies I am quite pleased. Unlike the first one I received where the guard was loose, both of these they were solid in place. All in all a Nice sturdy feeling knife. I still think the handle is just a tad thick, but some may like that. I also forgot to mention last time that that in my opinion, the sheath is a piece of shit, and that hurts the overall score. It just doesn't look like it was built to last. A knife like this deserves a leather sheath perhaps. Maybe there's a local place I can get one made. Overall a 3.5-4 out of 5.
I bought this knife and I was impressed but the description did lie (at least to me) it said razor sharp but I got it and it could barely cut paper and that's not a problem because I sharpened it but for the price I say this knife is great and I would recommend buying it to anyone that likes knives such as myself but there was a small barely noticeable crack in the handle where a rivet went in but it's not bad I'm giving it four stars
I cannot attest to the actual steel quality, But the knife is well crafted and feels sturdy. A very handsome piece. Word of warning if you wear this on you hip from the front or rear view it looks like your carrying a firearm. Full Tang. Hard to beat.
I brought this a while back when it was still $20. I wasn't expecting much because of the low cost but, as my headline says, I was painfully surprised. I cut my thumb pulling it out of the box. The only complaints I have about it is I wish the handle was a bit beefier and the straps to secure it in the sheath could be made with a stronger material than velcro. Other than that, one of my favorite knives in my collection
Nice toothpick style knife. The blade is without flaws and very nice. It's a very good deal and a nice addition to a collection. I like and recommend it.
Got my knife in the mail today. Very happy with the Ridge Runner Montana Toothpick Bowie Knife & Sheath. It has a good weight to it and it is razor sharp. Not a big fan of the pakkawood but it is pretty. Highly recommend this knife for the price.
The total length on mine is 13-1/4" and the blade is 8-1/4" (not as advert. but no big deal either). The picture looks like it is a two-sided blade, but the top bevel is not honed to an edge. The blade has a matte finish and when polished with 2000 grit wet sandpaper and Flitz it looks great. The blade was not sharp out-of-the-box, which I like, and took an edge easily. Two minuses; One is that the blade/hand guard was just a bit loose, so I used some solder paste to fix it into place permanently. Second is that the handle is squared off and should be rounded (fixed that too). Considering the price it comes close to perfect; be prepared to either accept small flaws or to invest some time to customize it.
Bought this knife on a whim, I have and use knives regularly. Pretty impressed overall. The pieces of the handle and the dividing metal don't match well, giving some uncomfortable sharp edges in the grip. Filed the edges down and smoothed out the tang sides, and it feels 100% better, and only took 15 minutes to fix. All in all, holds an edge well, and will probably buy a couple more for presents.
i bought this knife about 6 months ago and i will preface this by saying it is a great knife and i will buy another soon. the upsides of this knife are most obviously the price. it also can take a fairly nice edge even though i have no idea what kind of steel it is ( i know its not high quality) it also holds and edge...decently i guess. i put this knife through the ringer. i batoned with it, A LOT. i went on many camping trips with it and it whooped a**. i had fun with it. the handle is very ergonomic and it fit my hand perfectly. it is full tang and has a nice weight to it. and a nice balance. now to the downsides. well it holds and edge like i said...decently but nonetheless it is 12 dollars. its steel is meh. thats the only way i found to describe it. but the knifes major flaw is that the steel is not great. after months of batoning with it just the other day the knife finally failed me. i was batoning an easy piece of wood for this knife. as doing so the knife snapped about halfway through the blade. now im not surprised and i am not angry. that is the only major flaw of this knife but it lasted long than i expected and i thoroughly enjoyed owning the knife. i will be buying a new one soon. this knife is a fun knife to mess around with but you should not rely on it with your life. for 12 dollars it is more than worth it. but for a knife that will last years and that will save your life i would go with something like the RTAK-7, cold steel trailmaster,buck hoodlum, or any large bladed knife that you have tested and will trust. i would not trust this knife.
paid about $13. with free shipping. The knife was very well made and attractive. you could not buy another knife like this anywhere else for the money. very pleased with this purchase
Unfotunately I am a collector and not a hunter or a user. The is beautiful knife, well constructed but I can't vouch for its ruggedness or durability. Made in China as alot knives are today it looks great in a display case and a steal for $10.00.The sheath seems like it should last..Go for it...
Good knife, just got it yesterday, brought it out too a fire with some freinds did fine getting a little wood when we were running low, over all a good knife. well worth the ten dollars
Got the knife, and the others I ordered safe and sound about a week after they were ordered. Mine has some scratches and dings in the handle...they are small. Each is oddly shaped and about 1x2 mm. The hilt has a slight rattle which, over time will wear on the wood. The sheath is for left handed folks or to be carried on the back. The quality of the sheath isn't great, and yet even after all this I believe it well earns my four stars. Good blade and great feel.
THIS KNIFE IS A HANDSOME PIECE & WELL MADE! THE PAKA WOOD HANDLE IS COMFORTABLE TO HOLD & THE BLADE IS EL SHARPO ; SLICED MY PINKY TRYING TO PUT IT INSIDE THE EL CHEAPO SHEATH! YA CAN'T GO WRONG FOR THE MONEY ON THIS HONEY!
Handle arrived almost square tward the guard. So needed to do alot of sanding and buffing of my own. Blade looks good tho. Thanks BudK
I've been eyeballing this knife for weeks maybe months, and I finally got my hands on it through a sale. I'm a little disappointed, but it's alright. The handle is much wider then I would have like, could definitely use a thinning down. The guard was loose on arrival as well. Other then that I rather liked it. However my friend's brother liked it too and bought it off me so I will probably buy another one on the next sale. Can't wait to put it through some tests!
Decent size for a closeout knife, but I can see why it's on sale, one of the wooden pieces on the handle is curved, meaning there's some space between the tang and one half of the wood handle, I'm too worried about that though, it's wood, it can be fixed, the other thing is that it had a grind on the spine, I would have preferred it to be full, even though I knew that before I bought the knife, all in all, for this price, it's a decent knife...
I got this knife from the reviews and found that the handle has a very small thickness. Along with the brass rivets sticking out a bit and not smooth/flush with the handle. The blade itself is nice and had a few burrs on it. Nice but far from 5 star.
I read the great overall reviews of this knife and thought I'd give it a try. The first thing I noticed what that the handle isn't pieced well and you can feel the joints of where the handle was put together. It appears that the hand is pieced together but there is no further finishing of the handle, so the handle doesn't end up with a smooth feel.
We won't be able to ship this item until we receive more stock. But don't worry, we've found a similar item that's ready to ship now.
