This knife will just be displayed and not used,so it doesn't matter,but I will say it is a well built knife with decent steel.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I really want the Winchester bowie now. I don't have a knife to go with the cowboy hat, and this one sounds like a Chuck Norris style blade.

Nice presentation knife, not sure how it would fare as a field blade.

Oh C'mon now! ^^ How much did that big bastard set you back Cane??

Either it was over $100 or it's inferior steel or it was purchased when Klinton was in office....

I don't think it would fare that well, just judging from the price. It feels like a solid knife though.

Cheep steel, if surgical stainless is cheap.

Hey,I've got it's little brother-the 30-30 LE set. Someone gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago. They are nice to look at,but it is pretty cheap steel.

I think it was $30-35. I like the knife, It's well made but with inexpensive steel.

This is my "Big Boy"!

S&W Limited Issue, TEXAS HOLD 'EM
10.25 in blade
16 in LOA
26 oz Carry Weight

That's a pair of .460 Rowlands near invisible next to the S&W!

That is a massive knife.

You should get the matching Model 36. I worked for a woodshop that made custom boxes, and those Texas Hold 'Em presentation cases were one of many for S&W. Just mentioning S&W Texas Hold 'Em reminded me.

I was digging through a box of "stuff" still packed from moving day (you know how it is), and I found this oldie but goldie. I started playin around with it again and remembered this thread.

Its very heavy for a butterfly knife and swings easily. Its still solid after years of abuse and still has its edge that I put on it. It took me forever to find it online because the only markings on it is "ROSTFREI" which, with a little research, means "stainless" in German.
