This bowie knife, for the price, is way beyond my expectations. Now let me say I bought it for collector purposes but would gladly use it on a daily basis if needed, handle is average size for my hands and lanyard hole is just perfect and the blade is very nice, heavy but thats fine, and the sheath is very durable and with 2 straps to hold the knife in place this is just the best all around knife any collector or hunter or whatever purpose you would need it for thusly why I gave 5 stars tho it deserves 10.
Didn't realize how big the thing actually was until the package arrived. Was asked if the knife is for "gutting fish". my response: "no, lions". Be sure to check the blade length and your local knife laws before purchasing
I first saw this knife at Gander Mountain for $40. After searching online, I found the identical knife at Walmart for half the price and bought it. Its a good quality knife that, if taken care of, will last a very long time.
I wanted an all round knife. Boy did I get one. Very impressive and well made knife. Kind of reminds me of the one Crocodile Dundee had in the movie. G'day Mates
I had a knife from a previous manufacturer, and after many good years of service broke. So, I was looking for a replacement. This item met all my expectations. It is of excellent quality, and I am sure will give many years of good service.
Got this Bowie last Christmas. $20.00 at Walmart store. I was impressed with the quality. Surgical full tang blade,Which a few strokes on my diamond sharpener,took on a razor edge. The sheath was surprisingly of good quality with two retainer straps which it could have done without seeing how snug the knife fits in the sheath. It's not going to fall out. Good all around knife for camping,fishing,hunting and personal defense. Plan on getting another as soon the store restocks. - Southernman -
Depending on what your looking for its a good knife to have. (that's why I gave it 3 stars overall) I'll go ahead and talk about knife here a little bit. It does not appear to be full tang. It looks to me like it stops on the near bottom where the last circle is. Speaking of the last circle. Its actually a hole to put a little rope or cord in it. I really don't care to much for that but just saying. Its there if your into that. It feels a little blade heavy to me. I'm kinda into that but once again just stating it for a little knowledge. Sharpness of the of the knife its pretty good. Its not the sharpest knife ever but it works good for me. If it isn't sharp enough you can sharpen it. The handle is some kind of wood. It has it has dips to put fingers on as grip. I got big hands skinny fingers so doesn't really fit that well in my hand. That's only draw back for me. It also comes with a pretty good sheath. The sheath closes in two spots to make sure the blade stays in place in the sheath. One near the guard I call it the seat belt fastener. And the other is at the end of the handle between the second and last circle. (Im sure theirs a proper term to the circles but it left my brain at the moment i do apologize). I figure it only need one and that's the one near the guard. Speaking of the sheath for some reason or another it leaves a scratch down the middle of the blade. I really don't care if it does leave that scratch. I didn't buy this knife for it to look pretty.
great knife thought it would be more heavy duty thin insert into handle.
the bolster might be a little loose the sheath is made of plastic on the inside
a very nice knife and very large size
for 20 bucks this is a great knife. feels good in ur hand, good balance. good blade. of course you cant expect two much for the price range its in but for the rare occasions when i use it it does fine.
Very poorly made and was disapointed when it broke when under little stress. Complete waste of valuable money.
I took this knife out into the woods to test it out and was not happy with it at all. I did some chopping and batoning of some wood. It did great with the chopping, but shortly after i started batoning some wood the wooden handle broke. If you plan on being rough with your knife this is not the knife for you.
It's a bit too big to be of any real practical use, but if you're just looking for a big knife, this one's for you. The handle, I didn't like much, as I felt the finger grooves did more of a job getting in the way than they did actually providing any form of a grip, and as for the guard, it would be better if it were a bit longer. The blade I didn't much like either; I felt as though the width didn't match the length. Winchester makes a more "classic" style bowie, with a longer brass guard and a wide 10" blade that is not only better looking, but also more balanced, but it's really just a matter of personal taste. The only thing I wouldn't recommend this knife for is heavy prying. The blade is thick enough, but the handle concerns me. Other than that, not a bad knife. (An interesting note about this knife; it was also featured in a certain music video by The Used)
much larger than I expected, but a great knife for hunting!
It is just like I pictured it and will come in handy around the farm....
The Winchester Large Bowie Knife meets the standards of knives of the Old West. Very well made, very handsome and at an excellent price.
What can I say? It's Big and it's Sharp! The wood handle feels good in hand. A leather sheath would have been a nice addition but for 20 bucks, I can't complain!
