This knife is an
actual copy of a typical Bowie knife of the 1830s. The story of the
Bowie began on a sandbar of the Mississippi River above Natchez,
Mississippi on September 19, 1827. A brawl that eventually involved Col.
James “Jim” Bowie, who, having been shot and stabbed, successfully
defended himself killing Major Norris Wright and wounding Alfred
Blanchard with what onlookers described as a “large butcher knife.” This
and other tales of Bowie’s abilities with a knife led to the widespread
popularity of what became known as the “Bowie” knife. 14” overall.
