Dug out this old CVA Bowie out of my gear this afternoon...Sorta forgot I had it....CVA sold them as kits back in the late 70s...As I look at it....it's a well designed blade...

    I had one of those, a looong time ago.  When Michigan had no limit on deer bait volumes it came in pretty handy chopping up piles of carrots in the woods leading up to the bow season opener.

    I just dug out a bunch of knives that were given to me by a good friend of mine that I had forgotten all about, including a high dollar Katana sword. I'll have to snap some pics and post them when I get a chance. Most of the knives are the larger type, much like you have above.

    I have one of those!!!  I’ll have to dig it up tomorrow.  First knife I “made”.  I did some file work in the blade.

    It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎

    I like I like that blade. Got me looking at Bowie knives to make again.
