    Anyone know exactly what kind of knife Turtle Man uses, at first glance it looked like a Western Bowie, second glance it looked like a Chinese/Pakistani knock off. I really like Turtle Man he's great entertainment.

    I was going to post a thread about this, but never got around to it. I HOPE he uses a Western Bowie, because I have one too.

    That show is great!

    I don't know what it is either, but I recall one episode (might be wrong on the specifics) but he was clearing snappers out of a pond after the sun had set because poachers were working it with jug lines. Narrator mentioned he had borrowed a knife from his sidekick to do his poking around because he didn't want to risk loosing Thunder, doesn't sound like a Chinese jobbie. Then again if it was his dad's knife wouldn't matter how cheap it was...

    My boy watches the show and I've seen it a few times, although irregularly. Harmless entertainment.
    Wasn't there an episode in which someone gave him a knife as 'payment'? Maybe that was a different but similar show.

    Busse, Becker or Fehrman should give him one of their knives. Would be good promotion.

    buckmaster 96. You said you have the same one but didnt say the model number. It really isnt stated what he has but i think its a bear and son cutlery CB00 bowie. It looks the same and also comes with a d ring sheath that turtleman wears.

    My little girl loves the turtle man. The show is pretty entertaining.

    A knifemaker should make him a descent Bowie.
