My take on the RR850 Mountain Man Bowie

The knife is about what I expected for the $20 asking price.  What you get is a Bowie knife with an overall length of 13 inches and an 8 inch clip point blade.  The style is very much like that of a…Continue

you kniw that is kind of a an interesting knife right there. I have often considered a sodbuster style knife but always feared the no lock mechanism. I do run a similir risk with the stockman I collect! ;)

I should also mention the glow in the dark handles do not photograph well.  Or at least with my crappy camera they don't!

I'm a sucker for glow in the dark stuff.  The liner lock was initially added to Case sodbuster sometime back but they discontinued the locking Sodbuster and have no plan on reissuing them.  The folks at SMKW took the Case model and released their work knives based on the Case.  They offer the locking work knives in the same sizes as the standard and junior Case sodbusters.   Here i smy tortoise shell locking work knife.  But you'll find the full size one in tortoise more appealing, Jan!

LOL, well it's not going to kill you if you live anywhere else so we are safe Tobias

I like the liner lock idea but the handles are not doing anything for me

Not sure if I'm the first one on the IKC block but once again I saw it on Ebay before it showed up at SMKW!!  The Trapper and the little leg is in this month's catalog.

This one is the RR1429 Glow locking Work knife; essentially a glow in the dark Sodbuster Jr. with a liner Lock!  How awesome is that!

The shield on the Glow series

Comes with a warning that basically says if you live in California it has chemicals in it that will kill you!  Sure am glad i don't live in California!  LOL

Got this interesting whittler which is a style I haven't seen before (R565):

It's a large (5-1/4"), heavy knife.  I like it!
