Comparison of two inexpensive big Bowie knives.
I sell cars to the owner of szco and get great deals on blades. Just picked up a damascus kukri for $60. It’s a beast.
I would go with the Timberrattler but damn that carbon steel knife is cheap $1 per inch including a sheath!!!
both are good , but the SZCO is carbon steel and the handle is not packka wood but a good hard wood ,use some tape on that handle and a good tight fitting ranger band , good knives you have all both of them.
A knife this inexpensive is good for several reasons. One is that you won’t be afraid to use it. You spend a few hundred bucks on a expensive stainless steel Bowie you will be reluctant to use it for fear of damaging it. Carbon steel holds a good edge and you can make it real sharp again with no fear of damaging a expensive knife.
They both are good & the SZCO Bowie will take a patina with mustard very easy, it is very high carbon steel and also takes a keen edge & holds it.
Those SZCO Bowie knives take a sharp edge. Be good to see it chopping something after the blade is touched up a little. 2 of the best for a lot less.
