Bowie Knife Project
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 dreamt of getting your name in the world's most famous record book, this is the chance to do it!
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS (GWR) is the universally recognized global authority on record-breaking achievement. First published in 1955, the annual GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS book has gone on to become one of the biggest-selling copyright titles of all time, selling over 2.7 million copies a year. Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, Craig Glenday, said; "It's one thing to be amazing, but are you "Officially Amazing?"
The 'Bowie Knife Project' was created by the Bowie Chamber of Commerce. Board members Bryan Brown and Van Baize are the Bowie Knife Project Committee Chairman. Albert Schlabs of ASAP Water Jet Cutting, an engineering company, has helped our Chamber develop and design the Bowie Knife monument. ASAP Water Jet Cutting will be manufacturing, constructing and installing the 3-dimensional replica of the Bowie Knife in 2014.
Bowie, Let's do-this and be 'Officially Amazing'. Find out how YOU can be a part of history in the making and permanently have a place at the site. Various sizes of custom engraved stone and brick will be used at the base of the Bowie Knife monument and are available for purchase here.
Each individual or organization that supports the Bowie Knife Project will be given the chance to attend the “BIG DAY” when Guinness comes out and cuts the ribbon.
