Bowie Knife Project Underway

Bowie, Texas - The Bowie Knife Project is getting closer to completion.

Newschannel 6 got an inside look at the project this morning in order to get an update on the structure and how it's being made.

Larry Hartman Gruber owns the welding service putting the knife together, and showed us how it's coming along

We had the Bowie Chamber of Commerce call Albert, my partner, and Albert's labs, and ask if we were interested in building the knife and we said sure, we'd like to try. We've probably got another month to go on it. We got to put the skin and the hilt and the wood on it yet,” Gruber said.

The project costs about $160,000, and when completed it will be a record. It's already been accepted into the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest bowie knife.
