    Other than guns, I also enjoy knives and the like. So here’s my Bowies, the one on the left is my custom made Arkansas Toothpick. Made for me by a guy on Etsy named Burnedmetal forge for pretty cheap; under 300$. Keep it next to my bed for self defense. The one on the right is a tradmontina Bowie. Bought it for less than 30 buck! Unlike my Toothpick; it’s thick enough to do work like cutting wood and the like.

    None, but I plan on getting a Bowie knife fighting book and trying that.

    That sounds like a good beginning. Start slowly. :)

    James Keating offers a DVD set on the bowie knife.

    Here's the link: http://www.jamesakeating.com/c4.html

    I can't say whether it's any good since I'm not qualified, but the DVD's are easy to understand and Mr. Keating comes across as a good teacher.

    Camillus made that knife, based on Jerry Fisk's Southwest design.

    My "big" knives are simple working blades from Forschner (Victorinox) - a 10" curved breaking and a 12" scimiter... Simple stainless steel butcher knives that have been my fish cutting staples for many years... I keep the two of them, each one separately wrapped in a soft cloth in my truck since I work in saltwater... and you keep your better blades away from that stuff... They only come out when the fish are big enough to need them... after my skiff is up on its trailer...

    I don't really have any big knives.
    Just this one I made for throwing knife competition at rendezvous.
    If I have a really big cutting job, I like a 'hawk.

    JD mower blade.
    Pretty impressive to put your finger in the hole and give it a spin! (The younguns at least)

    I think this is the biggest one I have. 12" carbon steel with a nice patina. Comes in mighty handy when I cook BBQ or cut up watermelons. Says "Foster Bros." & "Made in USA" on the blade. Been in the family as long as I can remember. 20190526_192910.jpg
