hi guys
the legionair bowie from the expendables 2 film landed on my doorstep this morning its finished to a very high standard
indeed a cracking high polish on the metal work a nice pakkawood handle extreamly sharp blade 9.50 ins long and a handle
length of 5.25 ins makes this a large beast indeed blade is 0.25 ins thick a very nice item from united cutlery.

one thing ive forgot to add is the sheath while strictly speaking its leather its the reconstituted
stuff with some sort of resin/binder makes it very hard/brittle if your going to use the knife thats
not a problem if your going to keep it as a show piece keep the two as far away as you can from each
other as one will certanly ruin the look of the other you can allways get a replacement sheath made
with proper leather that you can treat with leather conditioner for about £40 from some guy i know who,s
a craftsman in leather

hi martin
the steel is 7CR17 which i know nowt about maybe some one will tho
this knife is finished to a very high degree a bit better than the usuall
united cutlery maybe the recent shake up and take over has started to work
some of there previous work was really good this is even better

7CR17 is the Chinese equivalent of 440A stainless steel Mick. ;)

BTW
Is the sheath maker you know named Atkinson?

Thought it was Mick, I'm familiar with his work from another forum and it's real top quality. :tumbsup:
