Big-Knife Review: Szco Supplies vs Timber Rattler Bowie Knives

Comparison of two inexpensive big Bowie knives.

I'll take my Timber Rattler Bowies and match them against just about any Bowie knife out there . The szco knifes are cheap junk knives .

Great video, I am considering either of these knives but after seeing your comparison I believe it is the Timber Rattler Bowie that I will own.

Not only is it full tang but a 1095 high carbon steel for 17 bucks now that is a good deal even if the fit and finish is bad the steel it self is a good deal for anything under 30 bucks

A knife this inexpensive is good for several reasons. One is that you won't be afraid to use it. You spend a few hundred bucks on a expensive stainless steel Bowie you will be reluctant to use it for fear of damaging it. Carbon steel holds a good edge and you can make it real sharp again with no fear of damaging a expensive knife.

They both are good & the SZCO Bowie will take a patina with mustard very easy, it is very high carbon steel and also takes a keen edge & holds it.

I sell cars to the owner of szco and get great deals on blades. Just picked up a damascus kukri for $60. It's a beast.

Those SZCO Bowie knives take a sharp edge. Be good to see it chopping something after the blade is touched up a little. 2 of the best for a lot less.

both are good , but the SZCO is carbon steel and the handle is not packka wood but a good hard wood ,use some tape on that handle and a good tight fitting ranger band , good knives you have all both of them.

I would go with the Timberrattler but damn that carbon steel knife is cheap $1 per inch including a sheath!!!
