Each Tuesday in April, KA-BAR will release a video documenting a piece of its storied 120-year history. What, you thought it started with the USMC knife in the '40s? You'd be wrong.
In this exclusive video, Jim Batson reveals what he discovered about the controversial Edwin Forrest bowie knife, claimed to be gifted to the 19th Century actor by James Bowie himself.
George E. “Skeeter” Vaughan (Grey Otter) holds the distinction of making the most fantastic knife throw in recorded history. It happened at a pivotal time in history: World War II.
In part two of this series about the "Sea of Mud Knife," a knife that may have belonged to Jim Bowie, historian James Batson examines where this intriguing knife could have originated.
It happened in the 1970s, which probably explains a lot. BLADE magazine was indeed traded in a deal that involved a racehorse, and knife history would never be the same.
