Yes! You’re absolutely right! This is a wicked big knife! Coming in at 17 1/2” overall, the fixed blade has a massive 12” stainless steel clip point blade that is razor-sharp. The heavy-duty premium, black Micarta handle has a comfortable grip that gives you a solid hold and the large stainless steel guard keeps your hand firmly in place. There really isn’t much that can stand up to the Timber Wolf Massive Micarta Bowie Knife!
