This knife is nice enough to be considered an investment quality knife and rugged enough to be used. The knife features a 10-inch blade forged from 1084 steel. The guard, ferrule, and pins are made from German silver. The handle is fashioned from India stag. The leather sheath is made by Kenny Rowe of Hope, Arkansas.

The Huckleberry
This style knife was originally made in 1900 by Joseph Rogers. The knife features a 5 inch blade, nickel silver bolsters and pins, and a checkered ebony handle. This knife is only available in carbon steel. This would be an excellent choice for field use or in camp, but also nice enough to be an any upscale collection.  Box Photo

I consider this Bowie an all-around knife and very sought after in today's Bowie market. As shown, the knife features a 5 inch random patterned Damascus blade made from 1095 and 01 steels. The India stag handle is of mortis tang construction. Filework is featured on the nickel silver fittings. This knife is available in carbon or Damascus steels with blade lengths up to 10 inches.
