For your price range, you should check out the Makers market. Have what you want made. The Eastern European makers have some killer deals on some very nice knives. I just got another beautiful Daado made b&t for a ridiculously low price. Also a very nice guy to deal with. Besides, how many Croatian knives do you have in your collection.--KV
I’ll play... at the top of my list would be the Winkler Field Knife. Also, the Fiddleback Forge Bullfrog Bowie. There are some Lon Humphrey Brute de Forge clip points floating around out there too... ad he’s not making them anymore. A little different are his Bridgers, but they’ll do what you mentioned, no problem. A Becker BK7 will do all that you ask if it, and more, though it’s bigger than the others listed. Of course, Bark River makes Bowies of all sizes as well. Honorable mention, Tops makes various sized Bowies... lastly, you can probably just pick up an ESEE 6 (clip point or not) and call it a day.
Hope this helps. Personally, I love my Dave Beck TD6 SERE... it’s in the size range you indicated, he is accepting orders, and while a little pricey... it’s amazing. And the swedge gives it a little Bowie flavor
Actually there are several different shapes/styles of Bowies:
The stereotypical Bowie
The Searles Bowie
The Rezin Bowie
The Sheffield Bowie
The California Bowie
There's a lot of information here & people willing to help. Not everyone here speaks English as their first language. Some are older & not as internet savvy. So how about unbunching your spandex britches and tone the snarky responses down a notch.
