The Boker Magnum Giant Bowie Fixed Blade Knife is a new interpretation of the legendary Vietnam style bowie knife with impressive dimensions. It has a 440 stainless steel blade with precise grinding and an extremely sharp edge. The guard and pommel are made of polished stainless steel, and the genuine leather handle tops off the overall look of this classic piece.
I received this knife as a gift and have not used it yet. I like the feel of the handle and it looks quite attractive. Based upon the other review, I would probably use this knife as a show knife in a case. It is a big knife and definitely looks attractive. It can still serve a special purpose.
First off I would like to say bladehq.com is an excellent website/company with excellent service. This review is strictly based on the product. I bought the knife thinking it should be a decent product not the best but I would at lest get my money's worth, unfortunately that wasn't the case. After a few chops on some small pine branches and a couple of throws into my apple tree, the handle broke off. Come to find out that the very small partial tang was welded to a very small piece of scree stock that runs through the handle and attaches to the pommel. That's all that is holding your blade on. If you're thinking of purchasing this knife make sure you don't plan on using it for anything serious.
