    I've had the Bowie for at least 20 years, and I've never taken it to a stone.

    I carried it out in the woods while smokepole hunting before I had a CPL

    Got one just like it. It has made many of deer hunting brush blinds. Takes a lickin keeps on tickin.

    That makes 3 of us got Western, . . . Bowie's.

    Several on Ebay, . . . $150 or more.

    Think I'll keep mine. Belonged to a USMC cousin of my wife. He joined up, . . . while in basic he got his "swine flu" shot, . . . among others.

    Something went some kind of wrong with the kid. He became paralyzed, . . . heart, lungs, and voice box was about all that worked on him for about 2 weeks.

    He slowly came out of it, . . . but became a paranoid recluse after that. Feds sent him home with a 100% disability, . . . spent his money on knives and books. His mom gave me his Kbar and the Western. Kbar I use, . . . Western will be just a boxed ornament until I'm worm food and my son gets it.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you can read in English, . . . thank a veteran.

    Very cool knives and one I've been looking for at a good price for my collection. Well actually I'm looking for every knife for my collection but that one is still pretty cool.

    I have seen Chinese knock offs of a Western, but never the real thing. There is an Ace Hardware, on 4th St N, that has a $25-$30 cheapo copy of it. And that is as about as close as I can get to the real thing.
    1. I finished reading Blackhawk Down, the book, and it was very good. 2. I finished reading The Hunger Games, and it is wilder than the movie is.
    3. I finished Lone Survivor on CD, and I watched the movie, and the book is better. Everybody on that Team should have gotten the Medal Of Honor, but only one man lived. So there were no witnesses.[March 14, 2019]
