    Sloppy!

    Posted by Danz on 28th Nov 2017

    It seems J Nowill need to look up what fit and finish means. I recently purchased the 8inch bowie and this model....both had issues... The 8inch model had a brass guard that was completely lopsided and had a big ugly gap where it meets the spine after the ricasso, the blade was scalloped either side where it tapers to the tip. Where the scales meet the guard it was again lopsided !! The only reason i didnt send it back was i bought it with customization in mind. The 9inch model on the surface looked a lot better when it arrived, the blade was thankully ground sound, and also is distal tapered which i was a surprised at, all good. Both these knives come with oversized sized scales which are proud of the brass guard, so a little sanding was required for my preference to make it all level. During hand sanding i noticed the handle pins slowly disappearing into the scales! With a little punch and a light tap with the hammer ALL the pins flew right out! Not only that so did the handle scales! neither had been epoxied to the tang. To make matters worse neither had the pins what hold the brass guard in place... Someones either smoking something they shouldnt at work or maybe they need thier eyesight checking or maybe they just dont give a ****!! My advice is to buy a blade blank from thier website and make all the fittings yourself, you'll save money and probably do a better job! On that note i can't really recommend either product

    Great service once again from Hennie Haynes . The bowie knife is a really impressive beautiful blade but not as sharp as I expected,. Overall I am very pleased.

    Wow! Ordered a Nowill & Sons Bowie from these guys, but the type was out of stock. Got sent this one instead (more expensive) and, I have to say, WHAT A KNIFE !! Should have gone for this one in the first place. Anyone after an authentic,'no frills' Bowie that's big,beautiful,yet practical,This is the one I'd recommend !!

    The Genuine Article

    Posted by Ray on 20th Jan 2011

    So I spent a great deal of time looking for a really authentic bowie, the sort that really would have been carried in the early 19th century. Call me a perfectionist, but I wanted the classic bowie knife. I've put if through its paces while hunting and camping and it performs great from skinning to wood chopping, holds an exceptional edge as well.
