Speaking of bowies-

Post by Bill DeShivs »

I have wanted one of these since I was 16 years old.

I started looking on Ebay and immediately found a nice one. Bid pretty high on it, but lost it.

I had seen another Anton Wingen bowie there that looked strange. Upon closer inspection, it was the same style knife- but the guard was missing! So, I bid accordingly. I won it and was waiting on arrival.

Then, the original showed back up on Ebay! Having not received the first one yet, I bid very high on this one, and won it.

First knife showed up and I went to the shop and made the guard and installed it.

Second knife showed up, and now I have a pair!
