There have been times when experience together with intuitive, gut feeling turned out to be more valid than scientific evidence in leading to truth.
I guess the BRKT Searles would be BRKT's closest thing to the Sandbar knife. (unless BRKT makes a Forrest, although it may not be any more popular today than when Rezin made it)
In 200 years I wonder what knife they'll be calling "The First Stewart Knife"!

Papi,

As you know - We will not be making a Sandbar/Forest knife for the same reasons Rezin made more "Originals" - It is an Ugly Kitchen Knife.




I do feel that our Rogue is a good Representation of an Early Style that actually was U.S. Made before the Sheffield Influence but the Sheffield Boys even made a good number of the ones like our Rogue too.

Fortunately or Unfortunately depending on an individual's perspective I'm just not up for a debate on this.

I have been in this industry for more than half of my life and this Bowie knife thing has been Hotly debated over and over by the most respected experts in this field - myself included.

Most people can't even come up with a definition of what a Bowie knife is.

The one thing that all experts agree on is that there are no definitive answers that would hold up in court but......

If you actually did study the history and begin to understand the players - and their egos - you would be left with only one conclusion on the Forest knife.

The Discovery of that one knife explained all of the Holes in all of the information for most of us.


PS: Mr. Stewart was my Father - He passed away - You can call me Mike.

Mike,

Fair enough. Thanks for your perspective on this subject.

Yep. The Rogue was my first BRKT knife simply because it had so much U.S. history in one knife.
It's linked to a Sheffield "Arkansas Toothpick" made for Graveley and Wreaks of New York which ressembled a knife carried by a Cherokee Chief around the same time as the Sandbar fight and is produced by one of the foremost knife men today. What more do you want!

All this Rogue Bowie talk has me fired up....It doesn't look to me there's enough room for a run in 2011, so 2012 will make it 5 years since the last time they've been made. It's by far my favorite Barkie design and my problem is what handle material is left that I don't already have?....Any suggestions?.......Rich

ragoligist - Looks like you need some BHS!

321 - The Rogue II will be bigger and nastier! I think Mike said something about a 9" or bigger blade. I don't believe anything has been set in stone for that one.

I don't know who made the First Bowie Knife,



...but many agree that is was Indian Trader McNight that sold the knife to Rezin.
