Fantasy Bowie Knife


I've been told this site needs more knife porn, so here's a fantasy bowie I came across on the web. It measures 15 inches overall, with a 9 ½-inch blade made from quarter-inch thick 440 steel. It has a brass crossguard, spacer, and pommel, and a handle made from woolly mammoth ivory. Yours for only $1995, here.

Remember General Patton's response when asked if his pistols were pearl-handled? He said, "They're ivory. Only a pimp from a cheap New Orleans whorehouse would carry a pearl-handled pistol."

I think the general would agree that the above knife, even with its genuine ivory handle, would be perfectly appropriate for a pimp from a cheap New Orleans whorehouse.

BTW, I don't like knives with ergonomic handles and finger grooves as you have to hold them a certain way or they're not going to feel good in the hand.
