Summary: an unused, rare, very large "Bolo" made by Dave Beck. If the name doesn't ring a bell... this is the guy who made the original TRACKER knife that was in the 2003 movie "The Hunted" starring Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro. Suffice to say, Dave makes one hell of a practical, functional knife.
This is Dave's large 10" version, all business. Dave's big knives with this two-tone blade finish are few and far between, this one with the Ash wood scales is a beauty. The feel of this large knife is fabulous – hold it in your hand and you want to run out the door and start chop-chop-chopping away! The build is quite functional, not only do you get exceptional chopping power but you'll find it's quite light in hand as it was made with 3/16" stock. This knife is unused with original edge, near mint condition with just a few very light wipe marks on the two-piece Loveless bolts. (read as: very, very light)
The custom black sheath with removable frogg is original to the knife and in mint condition. Knife / sheath fit is perfect, quality second to none.
11 photos for review – as shown, a new 19" Maxpedition carry case and product detail / warranty information packet all included. This jumbo Bolo is all business – one hell of a knife to carry in the field or to have around the camp site should you need to drop a small tree. Great balance and it feels fantastic in hand, tuck it away so you've got something GREAT to open at Christmas. That is... if it'll fit under your tree! Another very rare and impressive piece from Dave -- thanks and good luck.
