    Thanks James, I love this knife as well, but the funny thing is I wasn't looking for an old knife when I found it. I was looking for a new Russell stag Bowie on Ebay, when this old Green River came up in the search. I couldn't resist.

    Here's the knife I was looking for, nobody had one of these in stock for a very long time.

    Nice to see the fixed blade is well represented here. Nice bunch of blades from basic to fancy and points in between.

    I'm still planning on sometime in the relatively near future getting a Boker 545HH (Stag). I just like the look of it. It has a Loveless hunter look.

    Keep em coming of all kinds. No knife to plain or inexspensive and no knife to fancy or exspensive. If you got and you like it, SHOW IT! :D

    I really like that bowie, Ebbtide. It reminds me of the Searles-pattern bowies, and those have always been my favorites.

    My fixed blades are mostly tactical, but I have one that should fit here. It's basic in style and it's a user for sure.

    Bark River Highland Special. 4" A2 blade, canvas micarta handle. Feels good in hand and cuts great. Made short work of a pile of cardboard boxes earlier this evening.

    Excellent old style classic Bowie's there guys!.:) Nice choices..:thumbup:

    Here is a smaller Bowie by Raymond Richard that I picked up about 6 years or so ago. This knife was one of a two piece set, if memory serves. This was back when his prices were pretty reasonable. I probably should have picked them both up at that time now that I think about it, because he currently commands higher premiums. The blade is hi-carbon spring steel just shy of 4 1/4 inches with a wrought iron double guard and butt plate w/lanyard ring and stablized deer leg bone handle. Total length is 8 1/4 overall. This is another one that stays in the fixed blade EDC rotation. This steel takes and holds an edge with no complaints whatsoever. I don't know if I mentioned this already, so I will apologize in advance, but I love my fixed blades for two basic reasons in general: (1)Typically larger blade size than most slip-joints.. (2)Larger fatter handles that fits into my hands comfortably.:D

    If you are referring the Ruana 30-A Bowie, it is about average for that size modern Bowie, 2 lbs perhaps. The key for a large fighting Bowie is its balance proportionate to its blade weight and overall weight which this knife does possess. This is important for the application of target striking capability and damage ratio when properly administered..

    Very, very nice. Bruce does beautiful work.

    Hey Neighbor! Nice old Uncles! Usually I see lots of Golden Spikes, or Old Timer Sharpfingers. It is nice to see those.

    Btw, I live just outside of SA in Castroville.

    All y'all showing off them bowies is just inciting folks to get bowies of their own. Want to hear something sad. The Texas Penal Code considers bowies to be a prohibited weapon, as are tomahawks which are considered "Clubs." With the very history of Texas tied up with the name Bowie, isn't that just spitten on Alamo and the men who died there? Yes, you can still buy them and have them at home, but for "collecting" purposes. So you can have them, but it is still on the prohibited list. :p

    I think that may be reason enough to start looking for a bowie for the herd.

    Yep, Cisneros ordinance that made us all safer from gangs by outlawing lockbacks! Growl.

    Yep, a get together sounds good. My email addy is: [email protected]

    I've got a soft spot for thing Buffalo Bill. My first BB gun was a Daisy Buffalo Bill Commemerative, lever action. Later, till somone talked me out of it, I had a Winchester Buffalo Bill Commemorative in .38-55. It got shot btw. ;)

    Man, speaking of old BB Guns, I need the Daisy Colt Peacemaker my uncle had when I was a kid. That would to just great with my Imperial fixed blade and my regular, and tired looking Daisy lever gun. That would make a kid at heart kit!

    Amos, bring your knife down to the Schrade forum.Someone should be able to date it.We had a recent thread about Outers which I think your knife is.Arnold
