Im of the mindset that having too many weapons is simply not possible. So, I picked me up a new blade the other day, and she is a gorgeous piece. Hand made by the hands of Zach Wood and designed by one of my most cherished friends this Bowie is an instant lifer and will indeed be heading down the ranks of my family tree. Of course not without being heavily used and abused! No worries though made from 0-1 steel at a 58 Rockwell temp. Providing a slight bounce in the steel for stellar chopping, prying and baton work. My Bowie will handle anything I can throw at it or throw it at. Another beast added! Hyped!
