    From this description, I'm sure it's a fairly heavy duty outdoor knife. The blade shape comes from the same tradition that gave us chef's knives at one end and bowies at another.

    "The punal is the very model of a Spanish "dagger" of the 18th Century. Not a dagger at all but what appears to be a French chef's knife with a thicker blade and often a handle and sheath of silver or nickel silver."

    The Gaucho is to the Pampas of Argentina as is the cowboy is to the plains of the old western US. They are the cowboys of South America. The Gaucho's Knife, as AG Russell describes it, is as important to him as the cowboy's knife was.

    Boker, Arbileto Brand, is Boker's South American Brand. They are a quality, general purpose, all around good knife. I've seen some very ornate knives, with silver sheaths and handles, fancy engraving...very knice knife!!

    The Gaucho is part of the Boker line that is manufactured in Argentina. They are high-quality multipurpose knives featuring stag handles. Apparently, they are a big hit among the Hispanic American crowd.

    They great knives and not too expensive. Each comes with a leather sheath.

    Welcome to Knifeforums! Are you from the Boker company itself? I would love to have a Boker representative around here. You guys make some beautiful knives.

    I was looking at that smaller gaucho knife on the A.G.Russell site. I bet it would work great carving at a barbecue!
