Overview This is a discontinued Bill Bagwell designed Gambler Bowie, made by Ontario Knife Company. Features a satin finished clip point blade with false top edge,.311" blade stock and 1.231" blade depth, hidden tang construction. The handle has a brass guard/collar/studs, and a dymondwood grip.
Before anyone goes crazy on the phone, let me mention a basic straight guard bowie now starts at $3000, and his Hell's Belle fighting guard bowie (a week to make the guard alone) is circa $4000. And then there is the 2yr or more backlog. He is the only living cofounder of the ABS, as far as I know, certainly the only one still working.

Bowie knife making today is still carried out in Sheffield, England, but the manufacture of the Bowie Knives is now performed by a dwindling number of highly specialised craftsmen in the city. Master cutlery craftsmen in Sheffield are called "Little Mesters" , a term that has endured for many years.
