    Awesome find on EBAY - Hand forged Bowie Knife from Florida

    The knifemaker is Kevin Malone of Holopaw Forge, Holopaw, Florida. Kevin has been studying with two retired Randall knife technicians (Hugh Wright). This is his first blade of 2006. The 11" blade sharpens right to the same edge as my dad's WWII Randall - simply superb. The clip point is slightly higher than the center line. Handle is giraffe bone. The scabbard is Florida Diamondback rattler. Balance point is slightly ahead of the guard. I was the winning bidder at $285.20130722_182345.jpg20130722_182504.jpg20130722_182540.jpg20130722_182601.jpg

    Congratulations, you're the owner of a very nice knife. Its very unique, I like it. ;-) Its not a bad price at all. I'm assuming that this can be considered a one of a kind given that this was his first knife along with the unique and exotic material (Giraffe bone).

    Good score. ;-)
