The El Gigante is a big knife in size and stature. The solid Böhler N695 steel blade runs right through the handle and tapers toward the pommel. The tapering tang gives the knife a particular aesthetic and provides outstanding balance. The protruding and stout hand guard is made from brushed stainless steel, giving high handling reliability and contributing to the refined appearance. The Guayacan ebony scales are equipped with red fiber liners whilst the rough and grippy texture is reminiscent of the horns on an Oryx antelope. It is supplied with a premium genuine leather sheath.

    Beautiful Bowie

    Posted by Backhouse46 on 11th May 2020

    I like to own a tool for a while before submitting a review. I like to get to know a knife or axe and learn about it. This knife is a gem. Fit, finish, materials, all superb. The knife itself is perfectly proportioned and looks stunning in its very pretty and well made leather sheath. It looks exactly like the sort of knife that you can imagine a well dressed 19th century frontier gentleman would wear discretely beneath his jacket on a shoulder rig, ready for trouble over a poker game at the saloon....... The knife also performs flawlessly for bigger chores around camp and is not just a ‘looker’ but a proper tool that performs well. Special thanks has to go to Nick, who spent a great deal of time helping me select this knife from many others that he kindly demonstrated when I popped into the Heinnie warehouse on my way through last summer.

    Excellent big knife.

    Really nice package, both the knife and the sheath are very good value, the knife is very well made and finished with nice balance for a large knife, likewise the sheath is well above the average factory effort. Top vfm.

    Amazing craftsmanship!

    Posted by plankspanker on 22nd May 2017

    This knife far exceeds my expectations! Upon close inspection, i have found the fit and finish of this knife to be even better than all of the rave reviews i have seen at quite a few websites. The longer i look at it, the more i find to love about this literally amazing knife. The sheath is every bit as good. Simply put, do yourself a huge favor and snap one of these up. If it's even half as good as what i received, you will be most impressed. I have never seen such quality, and at this price point, it's a flat out steal! next stop, the arbolito esculta!

    Best knife I've ever owned!

    Posted by Steevo on 5th May 2017

    Had this a couple of weeks and absolutely love it. Top quality steel and gorgeous ironwood handle. Huge knife, but light in the hand due to heavy wood and slightly oversized handle, with well placed choile good for fine control. Wanted a Bowie but don't like clip point, and this is almost a toothpick style. Sheath fantastic quality leather, overall look almost Roman gladiatorial which I love. Much cheaper and better value than the Thor which was my other consideration.

    Outstanding XL

    Posted by Steve@Northumberland on 13th Nov 2014

    The El Gigante is beautifully made in Argentina. Blade inc. ricasso, just over 9.5" long. Chunky handle, just over 5" long. Stock, 6.5mm thick. All specs. approx. It has a tapered tang, and of course it is blade heavy. The Boker Arbolito El Gigante, has one of the best quality leather scabbards, I have ever seen on a production made fixed blade. Note the stud fastener. It also has a high/low belt position. The handle colour matches the scabbard, on this model. I think this larger version, is very good value for money. I am very happy with mine.
