Over the years, I've achieved quite a collection of bowie knives. When I was asked to review the Ridge Runner Executive full tang, 10 inch bowie knife, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

 

I have to say that the knife is one of the sharpest that I've ever used, with a razor sharp edge and a 10 inch blade. The metal isn't your typical kitchen-drawer stainless steel bowie, it's made with AUS-6 steel and it's hard enough to cut in to a block of wood with ease.

 

It's also very well made, with a great looking handle adorned with scrollwork and it looks like a top quality blade all round. I wanted to start my testing by slicing, stabbing and then hacking.

 

To test it's sharpness, I sliced through a sheet of 3mm card. In one clean slice, the card was in two pieces without a mark of damage to the blade. I then lined up a 14" foam block for my stabbing test.

Both times, the blade went through to the hilt with a medium amount of pressure. Pulling the blade out was a smooth process and so I went on to my hacking test. I hacked away at the 14" block of foam and after 2 minutes there was nothing left but shrapnel. It's simply a great all purpose bowie overall and still serves me well - it's easily my favorite hunting companion.
