Welcome to the Bowie, Texas

Go To Bowie Knife Project Official Website

Bring the Guinness World Records folks to Bowie, Texas?  Yes we can! How? By attempting to build the world’s largest Bowie Knife, that’s how!

If you've ever dreamed of getting your name in the world's most famous record book, this is your 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 Chairmen. “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.

We want YOU to be a part of history in the making and permanently have a place at the table. Various sizes of engravable granite will be used at the base of the knife monument and available to purchase.
