Anyone collect Bowies?

Post by GSPTOPDOG »

After getting out my old/newer Case Bowie for a comparison to another Bowie I picked up, I started looking around the "knife-room" ::paranoid:: looks
::paranoid:: like I might have started collecting Bowies at some point... ::shrug:: but I am not sure when... ::shrug::

I had 5 of the 6, I still have G. Washinton's dagger and the Bowie, but traded the others off a few years ago... ::dang::

This one from Tops is a little more "modern" so to speak...

It has a similar point to a Natchez style Bowie knife. The handle is more of a modern tactical style handle.

Thank you 👍🙂👍

It is one of my favorites out of my Bowie knives.

I have some other knives that fit into the Bowie genre, (like the following two Case Bowie knives), but I'll stand back and watch what else pops up during this thread... I am looking forward to it.
Bowie Knives are cool! 😎

The large straight blades Case you’re showing with the glove on, is it the Rio Grande knife? I have never seen one until last month, I was watching it on eBay. Truth be told the final sale price was a lot lower than I thought it would have been for a knife that size.

It sure is, a Case 'Rio Grande Camp Knife', and it's an awesomely made knife.
I don't think many folks know about them, I myself just recently discovered the model. I'm really glad I picked mine up 👍🙂👍
