    Here's a pic of 4 of mine.
    Top is the Kansas Bowie...Ernie Grospitch was the maker.
    Second is the French Longknife...Billy Watson was the maker.
    Third is my drop point...Ernie Grospitch.
    Fourth is my patch knife...Billy Watson.

    Beautiful!
    That French long knife is gorgeous, but I have a weakness for big Bowies. Those smaller knives are nice too, and in the real world probably more useful. Or are these just for show?

    Thank you.
    The bottom 2 get all the use...the drop point gets all the deer action and the patch knife has cut many, many patches at the muzzle while shooting.

    I likem! I don't have any designer knivrs made by master knife makers. I have a few large bowies that I am fond of though.

    Thanks all.
    Here's another one that has seen deer and armadillo action...the Wolhuter.
    A friend from South Africa sent me this one.
    It is one of his first while apprenticing under a South African knifemaker.
    It is a replica of the Harry Wolhuter knife...one of South Africa's first game wardens.
    The original knife was used to kill a lion that had attacked him...that knife sits in a museum.

    If I had to go one on one with a lion I want at least a 600 nitro express. What shape was he in after the lion attack?
