that position has those attributes as well as a feature that most people are not aware of anymore.....the back or spine of these blades had brass along the spine, it helped to control the opponents blade and its progression toward the hilt........There was a time that Randall offered this on there bowies but that has been a very long time ago....and im not aware of anyone offering that feature anymore----it takes a master craftsman to do that.......occasionally you will see the larger blades affixed with subhilts, that came about to try and give better faster control of the larger blades with out having the user extend his finger infront of the hilt in the choil area...........I wish I would have seen the show...fubsy.
