​MADE IN THE USA

The Edwin Forrest Bowie is thought by most American Bowie experts to be the actual original that Jim Bowie used at the famous Sandbar Dual that ended with a rough fight among all the participants. I also hold this view. As Jim Bowie was recuperating from his gunshot wound after the fight he met and became friends with the then famous actor “Edwin Forrest”. Bowie gave the knife to Forrest for his stage show along with a number of original newspaper accounts of the fight. The knife was found in the 1980s in the Forrest Family Estate in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. We have made our version of the original knife. The knife is actually incredibly well balanced and very fast in the hand for a knife of this size. Once in your hand it will surprise you with its agility. Whether you use it or collect it – this is an all business knife. This knife is like holding a piece of American history in your hand.
