Bowie Knives are also becoming very popular groomsmen and best man gifts with engraving as an additional option to make them extra special for the special day.

History of the Bowie Knife

The term モBowie Knifeヤ appeared on the scene because of an incident on a Mississippi River sandbar near Natchez, Miss., on September 19, 1827. In this battle Bowie was stabbed, shot, and beaten half to death but managed to win the fight. This fight created an enduring image that ultimately caused a manメs name and a weapon to become a common phrase in the English language. By 1835 several makes and dealers were advertising Bowie knives for sale, and many frontiersmen carried them. The Bowie knife, as historian James S. Hutchins writes in the foreword, "has attained iconic status, becoming part of the very fabric of the nationメs westward movement."

Custom Bowie Knives in the Media

Bowie knives are featured in many movies. Pretty much any movie about the Alamo, or the old west will have itメs fair share of antique bowie knives. Rambo uses a custom Bowie Knife in his movies in several very famous scenes. The Khyber Bowie in the Indiana Jones movie has become a well sought out replica, and モThe Iron Mistressヤ with Alan Ladd portraying Jim Bowie is a true classic.

Keeping history and entertainment in mind, consider the true Bowie Knife is a knife that refuses to die, not because of sentiment or nostalgia, but because it is the best knife of its type that the world has ever seen.
