13 Numbered Limited Edition 
“Bowie’s Bowie” Knives
Inspired by the knives created by Chuck Stapel
for the Motion Picture 
“The Alamo”


These very limited edition “Bowie pattern” knives (the original “design” used by the men of Alamo which inspired Jim Bowie to create the most famous knife in American History), are exact replicas inspired by the knives made by Chuck Stapel specifically for the motion picture, "The Alamo” (© 2004 Touchstone Pictures), and as featured on the cover of the February 2004 edition of the bible of knife enthusiasts: “Knives Illustrated” (see article)

Only 13 of these special knives will be made in honor of the “13 Days of Glory” of the “Battle of the Alamo”! (see “story behind the knife”).


Praise for the "Bowie": 
"I received my Bowie's Bowie just a few minutes ago and I just wanted to drop a line
to thank you for such a wonderful work of art. My wife who could care less about knives etc could see what a true artist you are! I took it to work this morning and showed the knife to a few of my buddies that like knives (most southern boys do) and they really loved the knife!" -- S.S. (Jacksonville, FL)
