Down Under Knives Walkabout Bowie Knife (8.0 Inch Mirror Polished 440C Blade) Stacked Leather Handle + Brown Leather Belt Sheath DUKWA
Another one that's been a long time coming - the perfect companion or just a slightly scaled back alternative to the long-standing flagship model, the Outback. The Walkabout packs all of the strength and balance of its bigger brother in a lighter, more convenient format that's a lot easier to carry all day, every day. Fans of the original will feel right at home with the stacked leather handle, solid brass grip-enhancing pommel and guard, and the classic lines of the heavy stainless steel blade. Featuring the improved crocodile skin pattern, sharpening spike and bone decorations, the newly designed heavy leather sheath is also a perfect match for the Outback's distinctive styling.
It's not all about being a mini-Outback, though - if you can call an 12.5 inch knife mini-anything, that is. The Walkabout is easily one of the most utilitarian, no-nonsense hunting / general purpose knives out there, and the classic looks and all natural materials are sure to appeal to all outdoorsmen, collectors and anyone just looking for a fine bowie that does exactly what it's supposed to. Down Under has been regularly asked to produce something like this for years now, but have chosen to take the time and get it right rather than just scale down the existing design. This is a knife that will stand on its own merit and happily go toe to toe with anything in its size class.

Was dubious about the website as I had been looking for this knife for quite some time, most sites I found did not ship to uk. It arrived today, super happy with it! Will definitely return. Customer Service was top notch and shipping to me in the UK didnt take long at all. Was so happy with it all, that I came to write a review, usually dont bother. Thanks again guys.
