Just something I want, I have hatchet and beat down knives that I abuse(yes I abuse them, see my esee), I want this as a display peace and something i can pass down to my kids along with my buck that I keep in my toolbox. I get that it can be used and I might use it gently when I get but I don't want to beat it up like I do all my other tools. I am not very good with keeping tools in the best shape, shit let my father-in-law tell it and I am gaurtnee to break it if I borrow it.
But honestly what good are Bowie knifes. They are too heavy for hiking, camping I gues but what are you gonna use it for, hacking, splitting, etc.. everything that a good hatchet will do 1000x times better. Bowie knives are made for fighting and if shit hit the fan, I will be more than happy to get it off the wall and slice a mother up. But i get how u feel.
From your prior pictures/shit you post here you and your tools know a hard days work.
I was just curious your perspective on it.
