What brand name manufacture makes a good quality Bowie knife?
Agreed! And for me Jerry Kennedy just knows how to do them right.... Beautiful lines with amazing Damascus steel. Not cheep but his knives will lasy many lifetimes :thumb:For a Bowie, I'd go custom honestly. They're not en vogue for your big mass producers anyway, and a lot of the commercially made ones are both Asian and not very good. Lots of knifemakers in the US like the classic lines of a Bowie, sort of a must-do project in the life of most makers.
Well, they're now owned by the Frost folks in Chattanooga and it's true that 90% of their stuff is contracted Chinese junk, but the Hen and Rooster stuff seems to be from Spain now (was always Germany before), but dunno know quality level, but certainly if those folks handle it, I'm immediately thinking watch out. Then again, they do sell some percentage of other better brand name stuff too, so who knows.Hen and Rooster? Isnt that the brand they sell on the infomercial?
Ive often watched that program to fall asleep, the knives look cool but I imagine them to be crap. I base that on nothing other than the fact that its sold via infomercial.
Just my thoughts, I would like to hear from someone who has actually purchased a knife from them.
Does he sell online? I loved those knives!Here's a link that will set you to drooling. All by Mike Carter.....
