Wow, that is a nice spread! That one on the bottom is particularly spectacular.

That is gorgeous and my favorite so far. Please keep em coming. Any of these would be the pillar of a Bowie collection. How long you been collecting Bagwells?

"Texas Toothpick" from Bill Bagwell. This pig sticker has an 11.75-in blade with dogbone cocobolo wood handle.

On a rien inventé de mieux ... We invented nothing better (I'm lucky to have one, I won't let go of it for the world)

World War II Randall Orlando Fighter. Much earlier in the thread someone opined that it was unlikely that any of these fantastic blades would ever be used for their intended purpose. But, let me introduce you to one that did “live” to its purpose. This Orlando fighter was in the possession of a USMC officer who was drafted into the OSS and saw extensive action behind enemy lines in Europe. After WWII he continued to serve and, as the OSS was phased out, he became part of the newly-formed CIA and proceeded to serve as an operator in the “black ops” world for many years. This fighter served him well over the years and was blooded during his service. In short, it is a knife that has “been there and done that” and, despite its well-used appearance, is still fully capable of slipping into a sheath and going out there to serve again.
