it all depends on how much you can afford to spend. Be careful of buying any cheap damascus blades because many of them are soft and won't hold an edge. I like bowies from Matt Lamey.

Check out Randall Made Knife in Orlando, Florida. Best in the world for me. I have used their #1,15,5,3. They also have traditional style Bowie knives.

Randalls are excellent but you have to either wait 2-3 years for your order or pay the jacked up prices on the "Bay". Another option, solid but not pretty are Esee, or BKT, or mineral mountain as someone else said. I like the big Natchez bowie by cold steel but it is "big"

Given your criteria, i.e. a good bowie with a rubber handle, these are better than average and under $50.

The Condor Jungle Bowie.

The term "Bowie" covers a lot of ground---everything from very stylized, curved blades to simple large knives with modified spearpoint type blades. I prefer the latter---like a Cold Steel "Trailmaster" or the knife I choose to buy---a Fallkniven A2---you could kill a Buick with this thing! A real working knife---oh, yeah, it does have a rubber grip.
