here's mine, I've had it for about 30 years now... I found the bladewhen I was a teen, rusty and no handle under an old fallen down log cabin in the middle of the woods. I cleaned in up, made the handle and sheath. I love this old blade!

Here is my Bowie Knife with a handmade sheath. I've had this knife since 1962.

Looks like Don44 & I have the same Bowies.....
Yes sir, I think you're right. I have had this Bowie a long time. Bought it in Phoenix right after I got out of the Army.

This is as close to a Bowie knife as I have. It's a Puma White Hunter. My father bought it back in the late 1960's.

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.
