Let's Talk Bowie Knife and World Record
Check out these links!
Go To Bowie Knife Project Official Website
If you've ever dreamt of getting your name in the world's most famous record book, this is the chance to do the next best thing.
The idea of the ‘Bowie Knife Monument’ was pitched to the Bowie Chamber of Commerce by the late Bob Hadley, local rancher and bronze sculptor. A monument was inevitable! Board members Bryan Brown and Van Baize are the Bowie Knife Project Committee Chairman. “This is an exciting addition to our city. We look forward to the completion of the 3-dimensional replica of the Bowie Knife in 2014” says Baize.
Bowie, let’s do-this and be ‘Officially Amazing’. We want YOU to be a part of history in the making and permanently have a place at the site. Various sizes of engravable granite will be used at the base of the knife monument and available to purchase.
