San Francisco Bowie Knife

YouTube Video - Idaho Knife Works Bowie ( San Francisco Bowie ) A look at one of my favorite big knives. This is one big sexy knife, made for me by Idaho Knife Works 10 years ago. If you like big knives, I think you'll like this somewhat different piece of steel and stag. It's called the San Francisco Bowie; however, I had them enlarge their basic design a bit. I see that they are still going strong.
