I finally dug out my 3 Bowie types. The biggest is a Case Bowie. I got this one as a fond memory. My brother was in "nam,, wrote mom that he needed a bowie knife. I went with her shopping & she went into a sporting goods store,, asked for the best Bowie they had. I recall she paid $20 for one. My brother carried it for 2 tours. This one is exactly like his,, down to the sheath. His has a lot of miles,, broken handle & all. But I had to have one like my brother.
The stag handled one is the one on my SASS belt. It didn't come to me in any special way,, but it is one heck of a good blade.
Lastly,,, not a true Bowie but a special knife to me. A Ka-Bar,, I got from a good friend in the Army. It became part of my flt vest,, and I carried it a lot. So,, my brothers Bowie, to my Ka-Bar,,, both "served" us well.
