I have two of my Merc Bowies available Big Bowies ready for battle or camp!!! My thoughts for this design is a very useable Bowie with a little bit of mean in it. I am very happy with how these both turned out! I have drilled out the tangs to reduce weight and given the blades a nice distal taper. Both are made from 1/4inch 5160 with my usual differential heat treat. Both will come with black Kydex sheaths with a Kydex belt loop. Price for either is $400 shipped in the US(International shipping available at added cost). The green Micarta with yellow G10 liners is***SOLD*** 14 5/8in overall with a 9 3/4in blade. It weighs 16oz. The black G10 with green G10 liners is***SOLD*** 15in overall with a 10in blade. It weighs 17oz.
