    I purchased the 2 Arrow Knives California California Bowie on a forum a few weeks ago and I love this thing. It's stout yet very capable of doing bushcraft tasks. Just the right size for me needs.

    Some stats:
    3.5" blade w/ clip point and a scandi grind w/ a micro bevel
    4.5" handle w/ brown canvas micarta
    80CRV2 steel
    Full tang
    90 degree edge
    blackwash finish
    Came with a kydex sheath w/ a leather backer

    For my use, I think it's a great size and also very stout. The blade is 3.5" and is long enough to baton through wood w/ the chipping away method (excuse me if that's the incorrect term). The blade is pretty broad, 1 3/8". A couple of whacks at the spine, sends the blade in deep.

    The clip point, sets the tip about at the center line of the blade. So creating pivots for a bow drill kit wouldn't be hard. I used the knife to make a "one stick fire", "cap full of feathers", and an abbreviated version of Mors Kochanski's "trystick".

    The 80CRV2 steel did a good job, after using it for a few weeks doing bushcrafty tasks, I really didn't notice much dulling. I stropped it after every use.

    One Stick Fire:
    It was a easy as pie. Breaking the wood down, was a snap and Zach put a really nice edge on it so feathering with is was very fun.

    Cap of Feathers:
    Very fun and fast.

    Try Stick:
    Beforehand, I thought the broadness of the blade would make it more difficult to complete the Try Stick but I found the clip point allowed me a lot of tip control and also maneuverability in the notches. I thought it did great.
