Ok, my geek is showing.
This is where my fetish for knives crosses my geekery.
I’ve been looking for months for where I can get Jayne Cobb’s Bowie Knife from Firefly.
I’ve wanted a big-ass bowie knife for years. I’ve got balisongs, switchblades, straight-razors, tactical folders, bayonets, daggers, throwing knives, a million kitchen knives, machetes, pukko knives, buck folders and buck hunting knives, swiss army knives, opinel folders, gerber folders.
But I don’t have a bowie knife, and I’ve wanted one forever.
So I just ran across something on a browncoat site identified that BFK (Big Fuckin’ Knife) Jayne carries. And of course, I want one.
The Rough Rider Patrick Henry Liberty Bowie Knife:
Of course, it can’t be that easy. It’s out of production. The only company I can find that has them for sale is taking back-orders, but can’t tell me an ETA. On the other hand, I know a guy (who is an order of magnitude higher in geekdom than I) who makes an exact replica of Jayne’s sheath. Which means that, if I can ever find the goddamned knife, I also can get the sheath I want.
Ok, now, who’s giggling at the word ‘sheath‘?
I know. I know. Geeky. I can’t help it. I have weapon lust. I must have that knife.
