Best Bowie knife around $50

Would like to get a nice, big Bowie knife. Is it possible to get a decent one for around $50? I love the looks of this one from Amazon...but at $26 Iím guessing itís nothing special. Looking for suggestions. Thanks.

One of my sons bought a Uncle Henry bowie on line for around $40 that looks pretty nice.

Really digging this one. A little more than $50, but still in the neighborhood.

Western W49

There are a lot of choices out there. Chico may help you with a selection. I will use this oppurtunity to display my Bowie Knives these are kind of in your price range. I paid 60.00 for the one on the plaque and 45.00 for the other which is in nicer condition than the other.
I found one at yard sale and one at a swap meet. They both should fetch over a hundred if I was going to sell.


Both are Western W49

Guess where this one's made?

How about a nice KaBar made in Olean NY? I think you probably already have one though....

Yep. Already have a KaBar. Just looking for a kind of Wild West beefy Bowie style knife. Mostly for show.
