St. George's Notes XI - The Bowie Knife...

<< < (3/3)

The Elderly Kid:
My mistake - thorpe's "Bowie Knife" came out in '49, not '47.  Incidentally, in the Sandbar Fight, Bowie drew his knife only after he was shot in the hip, clubbed with a pistol butt, then run clean through with a swordcane. When Norris Wright, the sword-wielder, tried to withdraw the weapon, the handle broke off in his hand. Bowie grabbed him, drew his knife and disembowelled him, then slashed the arm of another foe who tried to assist Wright. Whatever the knife was like, Jim bowie was one tough SOB.
