Default New to me Blackie Collins Survival Bowie

I was bored a couple of weeks ago and found a really nice Smith and Wessonbox for sale on an auction site for $10. I really like the old S&W boxes for the knives back in the 70's so I ended up winning auction for $10 as only bidder. It took me awhile to figure out what knife was originally in my cheap empty box. On the end is TR2308 and I finally figured out it was a Texas Ranger survival bowie was in box. Luck happened and I found somebody on same auction site with knife that was one of the leftover Texas Ranget knife that 15000 with brown in handle for $100 in new codition. Again I was the only bidder and ended up with knife #28171 that resides in box #TR2308. I think these knives are pretty neat and use them as displays in my gun cabinet along with a 6060 knife in box new of course a 6080 kinfe in box and a 125th anniversary belt buckle new in box I found for $25. Thought I would share with you guys a couple pics and one with my entire S&W knife/accessories collection. It is my belief some these knives required as much as 47 different operations to make each one and really were not a profitable item for S&W back in the day.

28171 is not a Texas Ranger Bowie left over. It it were, and its not, there would be a Texas Ranger disc in the handle. The number 28171 is too high. It's a plain Blackie Collins Bowie. There is no such thing as a "Survival Bowie". It's either a Bowie, or a Survival knife. The reason they stopped production was two fold, they made way too many and stiff competition in the knife market.

Nice! I always thought they were nice knives back when they were in production, but never got around to buying one. In recent years I acquired a 6060 Folding Hunter and 6030 Survival. May end up with a couple others one day

Onehikes
Look at the sheath for your Survival knife. On the back, it reads Bowie/Survival. That's because the sheath was made to fit both.

"The folder hunter however I believe was produced by Alcas."
This is not true, all of the Folding Hunters were made by Smith & Wesson.
If you have Clarence's book, read it, it will correct your mistakes.

Default Thanks Don

Have I upset you, you are trying to disprove everything I provide. We all make mistakes including me, it was my understanding this forum was to provide correct information to S&W lovers. If you look at your copy of your S&W book on page 6 Roy Jinks says, S&W did not have the capacity to produce the folding hunter, it was produced by Alcas or Bowen. I know what the sheath says on the back, it is my knife in the photo. I referred to it as the Survival Bowie and I am incorrect, while some people refer to it as such because of the sheath, S&W named it the Survival Knife. Club Gun Fan is correct, the sheath does fits several S&W knives.

To the forum readers; please accept my apologies for any information regarding S&W Blackie Collins designed knives I provided and look to Don, (Club Gun Fan) for the correct information.

I will quit posting about S&W knives and bow down to a Higher Authority. I deleted my original post.
