Bowie Knives 1820-1870

A very interesting video on bowie knife history, 1820 - 1870. I thank Barry Needham for directing me to it.

Bowie Knife Show at the Historic Arkansas Museum

I wasn't able to attend last year's exhibition of bowie knives at the Historic Arkansas Museum. Jon Moore, a knife maker whose company is Sharp Decision Knives, attended the show and was kind enough to send me photos. He originally contacted me  months ago, but his message languished in a secret folder at my facebook site. Anyway, here are some of Jon's photos, which will give you an idea of the scope of this exhibition, which displayed about 200 bowies.

Here are some beautiful knives made by Jon and photographed by John Cooper. You can view more of his work in the gallery at his site
