Magnum Trail Master - Saturday, January 20, 2018 12:35 AM ( #1 )
I would love to see CS make a larger sized Trail Master (and call it the Magnum Trail Master), with the same blade geometry (so drop point and 5/16" spine), just make the blade 11" long. Blade steel could be the new San Mai (VG-10) and how about version in 3V as well?

An 11" Trail Master would be nice. The point configuration is closer to my Bagwell Customs, which are my absolute favorite Bowies. Since it basically would have a niche appeal, I think it would be better done in regular carbon steel to keep the price down and possible acceptance to a wider number of people up. I'd also like a little more width at the very back of the handle to give it more of a coffin shape. Nice idea, but seriously doubt it would ever happen.

all valid points Mike, and agree with the idea about steels. A 3V (at 60HRc) Magnum Trail Master would be IMHO close to being perfect.

I would even welcome it done in SK-5 to keep price down. From the testing I did with the SK-5 "China Dolls", it is a good steel for a hard use Bowie.
