From a manufacturer who’s name used to mean something, comes a new product better left to flea markets and the BudK catalog.
For the low, low price of $18, Schrade will sell you a 10-inch bladed hunk of nameless stainless that they are calling the Old Timer Bowie.
That’s right, the brand your grandfather loved is now solidly targeting the mall-ninja demographic.
There is no way that the Old Timer Bowie could even be worth the effort it takes to punch in your credit card number. If Schrade would like to prove me wrong, they are welcome to send me one for review and I will put the knife through its paces just like anything else.
This popped up on my radar because it was just featured in BladeHQ’s newsletter. I can’t find it on Taylor Brands’ website (Schrade’s owner) so I’ll leave you with BHQ’s product description for the knife. It is good for at least a few laughs/head shakes.
This well designed bowie fixed blade knife features a 10″ bowie blade made from stainless steel. The Old Timer Bowie by Schrade offers a heavy duty design that will withstand the rigors of hard outdoor use. It has a full tang handle featuring black saw cut handle scales. The blade comes in the bowie clip point style and has a satin finish. It includes a convenient black nylon belt sheath for easy everyday carry. Old Timer offers affordable EDC knives that will stand up to hard use.
