Going to be adding some new schrade sheaths to the site before long but I got this in a box the other day;)

Hard to tell scale in the pictures but that a 10in edge fairly good sized knife I'm digging it;)

I got a cousin of mine the 36 model, and he's been very happy with it.

    sigh.

    I would love for a thin, utility Bowie with a 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inch blade that one could wear IWB or horizontal carry on the belt. A modern Bowie twist with some of that old world, hand crafted elegance.

    A guy can dream, right?




    Oh, there it is!

    Now where do I get one, how much, and who would make a kydex iwb sheath for it?

    That little Damascus Bowie was made for me by my Brother In Law and one of my Sons.  It's one of a kind... and certainly not for sale.
    I do not yet have a sheath for it.  But will make one once I find a piece of Kydex.  I may heat up and repurpose an old G-Code holster for this.

    Probably the closest thing to that I've seen is one of Ken Brock's Double D models.  A bit more utilitarian or, dare I say "tactical", but the blade shape and general dimensions are close.

    How is the sheath style? I would need it to be one of the above configurations (iwb or horizontal).

    My understanding is that it comes with a standard kydex sheath but perhaps a leather sheath might be available as a special order item.  The kydex type can be built pretty much to any configuration.  Leather too if you're going with a custom made item and someone who knows their stuff.

    As long as it carries the way I want, I don't care about the material it's made out of  ;).

    The only reason I asked through here is that, Ken still doesn't have his website up yet, correct? Otherwise I could browse blades online  :cool.

    I think there are pictures of it on this site somewhere.  Try the search function.

    I have grown to really dislike this kind of hiltless design. It looks like a large kitchen knife. It belongs in a butcher's block. I like a good brass cross piece to prevent the hand from sliding forward onto the blade when it comes to a sudden stop especially when covered in blood

    I had a similar thought. Mine was more along the lines of how it was an awesome looking kitchen knife I could use.

    Its really amazing how many "kitchen" knives found their way into the kit of mountain men, pioneers, soldiers, miners and all manner of people bound for and living on the "frontier".   A close look at the classic Russel "Green River" knives and many others from that time frame reveals a lot in common with both historic and contemporary kitchen knives - especially those used in commercial food service applications. 

    I will agree that the classic "Bowie Knife" is a better choice when it comes down to using it as a weapon but I would hate to think what could be done with a big chef's knife in the hands of someone who spent every day carrying and using a short, stout sword like the Roman spatha.  :panic   I get the feeling a Roman centurion thus armed could pretty well filet a whole alley full of today's "gangstas".    Just sayin' . . .  :hmm
