When the Marine Force goes into the night, they need a knife that will get the job done. This powerful stalker, with a 12" AUS-6 stainless steel double-serrated sawback blade will do just that.
I was given this knife as a birthday gift. Seeing the Force Recon name emblazoned on a cheap, wobbly piece of crap knife was insulting. The price of the knife, based on quality, balance, hardness and reliability is about right. You pay cheap, you get cheap.
This is an alright knife for the money, but not worth the buy. The cross guard is crap, makes holding it awkward, and makes using the serrations impossible. The saw back is totally nonfunctional, and literally cannot cut through anything. The bevil on the blade makes it hard to get a nice edge, and the blade is too cheap to hold any edge you put on it. Buy something else with the money, seriously.
The knife is a good buy for the price. The blade gets a little flimsy after using it a couple of times. It was bigger than I thought it would be. The handle could have been put on the knife a little better and tighter but overall it is a very good knife.
This is one fine knife to own.It takes a little work to sharpen to my satisfaction but it is ready to take out any zombies.
Okay knife. Blade gets wobbly quickly. Saw back can't cut crap. They are just decerations. Handle and handgaurd are uncomfortable. Good weight and balance. If your looking for a bowie of this type, I suggest the Anything, Anytime, Anywhere Marine Recon Bowie Knife over this all day everyday. Not worth the money.
It was not very sharp out of the box, easily remedied however, the only complaint is that after use on trees, and dummies the blade wiggles ever so slightly. Other than that it is quite a kick**s knife.
Christ, this is amazing. I got it just today and i just stabbed it into my bed to see if it actually worked. Yup. Its huge too, i was expecting big but not this big! There is a loop as well that you can hook onto your belt, not really like its stealth though considering its as long as my thigh down to my knee. Still amazing though. And the sheath is really durable, so theres no fear of cutting it while putting the knife back. Oh, and i should note that this knife is meant more for stabbing than cutting, so the edge isnt really too sharp.
just recently purchased 2 of these knives. i couldn't believe my eyes when i opened the box! what a well built and awesome knife! i gave my brother his and he loved it as well! wow!, what a conversation piece! showed it to my friends and they can't wait to get one of their own! i showed them the catalog that comes with the knife, they were really impressed with all of the offers and sales! i will continue to buy from BUDK! a devoted customer. thanks carlton smith
This is an awesome buy for the money! You couldn't ask for a better knife at this price. It didn't come razor sharp but I wasn't expecting it to...it had a decent edge on it which is all I would expect from a store bought knife. I've never bought a knife that came as sharp out of the box as I like my knives so I always plan on needing to put the finishing touches on them. This is one Serious piece of Steel that looks great and has a nice weight. I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone looking for a solid fixed blade hunting/utility knife!
i got 2 of these knifes not knowing what to expect its huge rugged and it holds an edge for a while its not flimsy and cheap great knife
This is a mean hunk of steel! If you don't but this knife at this price, you're passing up an unbelievable deal! I pulled this blade through the ceramic side of my sharpener for literally just a few times and it is SCARY sharp!
I really like this sturdy knife. The handle allows a real solid hand grip. The serrated blade portions are great for sawing and separating small wood, paper, or plastic objects. It has a kind of balance I like.
This knives is great for the price, I didn't think it would be very sharp but it was. The bowie knives seems to be made good too nothing broke when I used it Thank you I'm buying more knives from you guys again.
Every single item i get here is duller than my dollar store knifes! Like come on guys this is ridiculous. And customer service refuse to help me on this issue!!!
i got two on a bogo deal both came pretty sharp. my only complaint is the cheesy writing on the blade, so i had my friend bead blast one of them and it way cooler looking, its a nice matt finish stainless now.
These knives are so awesome! I bought two with the BOGO deal and I have to say that they are so great! Both of mine came razor sharp right out of the box and have beautiful blades! They also have a nice weight to them and the decal on the handle just ties the whole package together! Trust me, you're gonna want these knives!
at $20 (and free shipping) it was an excellent buy. though i expected less in quality, i was pleasantly surprised. it has a great feel and balance and i am thoroughly pleased with the knife. i will take it boating, hiking/backpacking, hunting and camping.
This knife is great! I have used it for splitting wood, taking down small trees, removing thick vine overgrowth(using the large teeth), clearing paths (like a machete) and moving hot wood in a fire, and have had no issues with it, better than the video. It is a thinner blade, but holds up well. Got this bogo as a gift and one for me. Will gladly pay full price if I break this one, which is what I have been trying to do with normal, woodland use. LOVE IT!
Loved this knife! It was extremely well-designed and is close to being the perfect combat fighting knife. It feels really good in your hand and is very well-balanced. The rubber handle was a particularly good feature. I recommend this knife highly.
I've had this knife a few weeks & happy to say I am very pleased with it. Overall it's a great knife. It's bigger than you would think judging by the pictures. However, it's a little light but hasn't been a problem for me. Some have complained about the handle being short but I disagree. No, it's not super long but it's meant to be a one handed knife. This isn't a sword. The grip is excellent & the handle is plenty long for any size hand. The blade will need to be sharpened if you want a razor sharp knife but still has a decent edge on it right out of the box. I've beat the h**l out of this knife & It's held up just fine. Blade is still sharp & no damage anywhere on the knife. If this knife catches your eye, just buy it. Don't hesitate. It's completely worth the money.
Don't buy this knife! I've had this for about a week now. When I first got it it was just awesome. But then the blade started to get a little loose. Then the blade actually bent! And I only used it for light use!
Glad I bought this from the buy on get one code. Its has a very light blade and a really short handle. Would not buy this type again. Really terrible sheath.
I've had this knife for about two years now and I've used it a lot for camping trips, cutting down shrubs around the house, and just messing around. I've put it through some brutal tests and it survived all of them. i love this knife. the only two problems i have had with it is that it came dull and i had to sharpen the heck out of it and just recently its hand guard came slightly loose and i fixed it quick and easy. over all, i really like this knife and i recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap but very usable large Bowie knife.
Ive had this knife for a few months and, WOW, thats about all I have to say. I hacked through 2 by 4s, threw it halfway through a 6" tree and demolished everything in-between with this beast. Only complaint is I didnt have extra money for 2. THANKS BUDK
Well worth the price. The only problem i had with this knife is that it says force recon marines on it and night stalkers don't quit. (night stalkers are army pilots, but that's beside the point) This knife is tough. I've thrown it plenty of times, even the point on the hilt is deadly. I also have ordered 2 tomahawks that are united cutlery (which is the company that made the knife) and they are amazing tools. United cutlery hasn't failed me yet. To some it up i'd pay $50-$100 for this knife.
I just got the knife today and I already LOVE it. It is beautiful and well made. Only problem I have with it is that there is only a belt loop on the sheath so it bounces a lot, it's a personal problem and nothing that will dock the score. I would recommend this knife to any one who loves knives.
I have nothing to say besides WOW this knife came sharp and sturdy. I've put it to the test hacking wood, throwing it, stabbing, sawing the works absolutely amazing
this knife is good how ever i threw it n it became loose ,but the back can in fact rip threw vines , it also acts a machete if you ask me ,but then i know how to use a knife, but i do think its worth the buy you cant go wrong.
I've just recently started buying items from BudK, and I haven't been let down ONCE! This knife is amazing! The blade came sort of sharp, and the saw on the back is great. My father was in the Marine Corps during Vietnam and he fell in love with it the second he saw it! He will probably be ordering from BudK soon. This is an AMAZING knife for a SUPER low price! BUY IT.
i am 14 years old and already preparing for the worst. i have 15 knives 1 throwing knife and 4 throwing stars. i already have 1 bowie survival knife with the match/fishing/needle and thread kit with an 8 inch blade. i also have a sword and this knife would be great to add to my collection
i fell in love with this knife as soon as i saw it and knew I had to have one. I just ordered it and hope it will be here very quickly!!!
I think I'm in love. Ever since a kid and seeing RAMBO I've always wanted a Kick-*** knife like his. And now... I have one... almost. This blade is so Awesome!! Great size! Great durability! Looks sexy! Nice weight and it's pretty dang sharp to be so MASSIVE!! All I can say is Thanks BudK and thanks United Cutlery for this sweet deal!! I'm ready for the zombie apocalypse now!!!
Wow this knife is not what I was expecting. I don't know if the very tip is supposed to be pointy but that doesn't really matter to me. This knife is everything I was expecting and more, meaning you can cut through just about anything you would normally cut. This knife is big and fits the hand very well. I just hope that the next Marine Force Recon knife is another bowie cause I'm buying.
I've got a collection of bowie knifes, but This Knife is one of the best knives I ever bought!
Very Good Blade! BUY!!! The sheath is kind of bad and the stitching came undone but I fixed it with duct tape. It wont get too sharp because the blade is so thick! (That is a Great Thing) its a Knife not a machete. The price is also really great. Hey don't waste you time just buy the thing, it gives you good bragging rights too!
Looks and feels great in your hand, rubber grip adds extra comfort. Sharp serrated edge came with nice edge very good quality bowie.
I haven't used it as I got it for a friend for Christmas, but just holding it you can tell it is well built. The outside of the handle is runner for very comfortable and solid grip. The blade was fairly sharp but that can be dealt with easily. Thanks budk, my friend will love it (if I don't keep it myself).
Received item very quickly. I'm very pleased with this knife as I served in the military forces. It has a powerful feel to it. It does need slight tightening on the finger guard. Overall, one of my first purchases from BudK and I can say I would recommend this item to every knife and sword enthusiast. Thank you!
This knife is great. The edge came pretty sharp, the point is totally dull. That doesn't really matter though, because with all the force you can get behind a thrust, it penetrates anyway. I slaughtered a pumpkin with it no problem. Also, the size makes it more of a machete than a knife. It's enormous. Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is that the point is dull.
This knife totally worth it! Its so awesome I feel like joining the marines now! The best knife I'ved ever owned.
This knife is bad a** straight out the box. The sheath could be little smaller. Quality knife at a BUDK price. Cant beat it. Buy it and see for yourself. I will worn you, once you get your first knife you will be hooked on BUDK. So buy at your own risk.Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments.

This is an awesome blade! Though it looks like a decorative blade, it can work. The serrated edge on the slanted part of the top is great for cutting wood. The blade can get very sharp if you have the right sharpener. Don't use a water stone sharpener, that doesn't work. It is very well balanced and if you have practice you can throw it with ease. I've been a customer for over two years and I am very pleased with every purchase of knives and swords.
The knife is huge, more machete than knife. It is very sturdy and the blade looks amazing.
D**N, I just got this 2mins ago and I've already cut soda cans/bottles, wood, boxes all in half. B****s bowie unbeatable price, insane quality! BRING US MORE BUDK WE LOVE YOU!Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have removed a portion of the review which does not comply with our review guidelines.
I don't know what everyone is talking this thing is about as dull as my finger nail and is almost impossible to sharpen with a Japanese water stone 1000/6000 grit and coarse sand paper. So if you want this thing sharp you'll probably have to send it to someone like Murray carter and if he can't get it sharp then no one can. Also the saw at the tip is pretty sharp and dangerous but if you stab someone with it will get stuck in their bone which is why the military stopped using aesthetic knives.
This bowie is awesome. I got this bowie with my good friend who is in basic training and going for marine recon. The bowie its self is really good it was bigger then I thought it would be and it is pretty sharp as well. It looks cool to. The small saw on the tip of the blade goes through a box with ease. The handle is perfect for the size of my hand not to small and not to big. The over all weight is not to bad. The sheath is good it seems a little to big for the knife but its good quality stuff. I highly recommend buying this bowie it is well worth the $20 i payed for it. It seems like it would be a good camping knife or even if u just want it for collection.
This knife is all i expected and more! It is now one of my favorite knives and I have used it for building a cabin in the woods and stuff as easy as cutting strings off of my pants, shoes etc. This knife also holds it sharpness and is also sharp right out of the box... the sawback and serrated design along with the straight blade all combines to help with anything you could ask for... great for hunting camping or any outdoor use! All this together is why i give it 5 stars... i love this knife and i would recommend it to anyone beginner or experienced...
When I first got this bowie I was fascinated at the size of the blade. It was huge! The handle fit my hand perfectly and the blade was razor sharp. The only bad thing was it had CHINA on the bottom of the blade. Other than that it is a great knife.
it's like a miniature sword i mean i love it....i feel like i'm in the army now and that i can kill a boar with it best Bowie you must get it
Just WOW! This thing is amazing and very large. No problems with this knife, just lots of amazing bowieness. This thing is a beast and definitely has more quality than the price. Recommend for anyone who wants a big knife, or collects bowie knives. Thanks BUDK!
This is the longest bowie knife I own currently and I've had some fun with it out in the yard. It's length makes it usable as a machete since it's front heavy, and it chopped through some sumac saplings (which are a nuisance where I live) and brush with no problem. The top most serrations seem to be only for looks since their useless unless sharpened with a grinder, but the smaller serrations on the clip point are just as useful as any other. The handle, though comfortable, is somewhat wobbly and bulky. Also the sheath is as cheap as they come, and I have no idea where to buy a new one for this beast. Through and through this is a great bowie to have fun with, but I wouldn't put your life in it's hands. I was hoping to give it five stars since I'm a big fan of United Cutlery, but this is not one of their best.
This was amazing i loved it it is giant and looks very deadly plus i am in to all those military equipment so u should defiantly get this bowie knife it is worth the price and got to my house on time thanks budk.
Great knife, sharp, good weight, amazing grip. The only problem I have is the sheath, but it's not so big of a deal.
Its a pretty good knife for the price but it is misleading to say that Marine force recon uses it, especially since Night Stalkers is the nickname for the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment who are army helicopter pilots who fly for special ops (I'm sure they work with Force recon though)
Great knife. good build, love the handle texture. The only thing that bothered me which is barely an issue is that "Nightstalkers don't quit" is not force recon, it is 101st helicopter divisions motto.
this bowie is f***ing HUGE!!!!! i bought this to compliment my wicked fantasy bowie and i am still not disappointed. it came extremely sharp and arrived within 7-10 days. I'm just glad that budk is true to their word about shipping and quality.
This is the first bowie that I have ever owned. Out of the box its awesome. The grip is sticky and brings great control to what looks like an unbalanced knife. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
This is one of the best knives i have owned. Cut my finger right out of the box. Amazing quality
I love this bowie!!!!! This is only my second bowie and i think that no other bowie that ill buy will surpass it. The blade is outstanding and the handle is great. I thought that the writing on the blade would be its downfall but its actually quite cool, I feel like i'm a night stalker with that thing even though I don't no what that is.
First off, like my last order, it arrived exactly one week later, and was sharp right out of the box. I knew this would be a big knife, just didn't expect the size of it when I saw it first hand. Also, it was surprisingly light, and the handle grips well even when wet. Only thing I have a problem with is the sheath. Nylon is an okay material for a knife sheath, but it would've been better to use a leather sheath, which I intend to buy in the near future. A great knife at a price that might as well be a steal.
This knife is big. I love it. I would recommend it. I been collecting for 28 years both high end and low end knives. This is my new favorite knife. I love the feel of it in my hand. A word of caution, the handle is bulky. It could use a little sharper edge but other than that, I am pretty happy with it. I will have to test it out on my next camping trip!=0)
This is defiantly a five star knife. the knife came very sharp, but still could use a swipe through the sharpeners. it's also a lot bigger than i expected. it's very light, balanced, and is defiantly up to marine corps standards, Semper Fi!
I just got this knife today, Its the first bowie Ive ever purchased and this thing is a beauty, Been doing a lot of testing since I got it and its durable, sharp out the box, an even when wet the handle keeps your hands from slipping, my only complaint would be that it wobbles slightly side to side if you jerk it, I would suggest this bowie to anyone. At the price its a great buy
This knife is awesome its huge and light but there are 2 problems. First for right handed people be ware the sheath is meant for left handed people so i put my knife in backwards. Second the blade is coated so it can ware off but only if its rubbed. just chopping wont do it. Other wise it comes sharp and is amazing. OOORAH Marines
this knife is the most beautiful thing i've ever seen in my life. as soon as i saw it i started to tear up and i bought it right away. its....beautiful
it was an awesome knife it was good to take hog hunting it also came pretty sharp and fast with standard shipping id recommend it to anybody and it has a great price. Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have updated the review to reflect the appropriate spelling.
This knife is very similar to the fantasy bowie knife I bought from Budk. The only differences are the this knife is black and has etching on it, while the fantasy one has small holes running down the side of it. Either way I can say that I think it will be a good knife and I am thinking about buying this one to complement my fantasy one.
We won't be able to ship this item until we receive more stock. But don't worry, we've found a similar item that's ready to ship now.
