I never thought in a million years I would ever offer this for sale. Here I have a Bowie knife that I made myself. It is a one-of-a-kind, and the only one in existence. I built this knife myself using stock-removal method from a Stihl(TM) chainsaw bar---solid billet bar, not laminated. The guard is hand-ground from aircraft-grade aluminum, and the grip is made from American hickory. I have carried and used this knife for YEARS---multiple hunting and hiking trips, and skinned a hog or two. It truly saddens me to offer this, but...hey...I can build another one. There are a few dings in the edge from hitting nails in wood, but otherwise...sharp as hell. Wink I'll give this ONE WEEK to sell, then...I'll keep it. $350.00 firm, take it or leave it. I can *try* to send some better pics to anyone interested. Happy Git you some, dawg!..........McM

Bump to the top. Big Grin This is a BIG, SHARP, TEXAS BOWIE. Hand-made one-of-a-kind. Yeah, you can get a replica Bowie knife almost anywhere....but not THIS ONE. Surprised My heart is breaking even at the thought of selling this. The patina on the blade makes it LOOK like it's 150 years old, but I made it myself in about '90 or '91. Make no mistakes, friends...this is NOT a cheap piece of eye-candy....but a fully-functional, ready to rock 'n roll Texas Bowie. $350 FIRM. Strap a lil' bit o' Texas on yer hip, pahdnah! Wink .....McM
