Best Iron Mistress type Bowie

    I have the itch to get a very large and menacing custom Bowie of a style similar to the "Iron Mistress".

    In terms of size I'm wanting length at least 11inches, width 2.5-3.0in, thickness 3/8in

    Options I've considered would be the "Iron Mistress" by Steve Voorhis or Hibben, the Smithsonian by Randall, or the King Kong by Carter. Any insight into these blades and/or other similar blades would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Addendum: I likely will never have to use such a blade but see it more as an impressive piece to own and/or defensive type of weapon, where someone who might otherwise see easy prey would go "oh s#!$, never mind". I would like to be able to carry it in either a shoulder or Dundee style back rig for easier carry and concealment.
