Bowie and Big Knife Fighting System

Book Description

Bowie and Big-Knife Fighting System is a valuable training guide for anyone interested in large knives of any kind, early American history or bladework in general. In it, well-known fighting arts instructor, bladesman and Bowie aficionado Dwight McLemore provides insight into Jim Bowie, the "Bowie knife" and the fighting systems that have been associated historically with both. The author also explores the connections between the martial fighting styles of Europe and America, traces blade-fighting concepts throughout history and offers practical training drills for improving skills with big blades.This is a must-have book for many reasons, but it truly achieves its collector's status with its detailed illustrations. The artwork, done by McLemore, is exceptional both for its beauty and its instructional value. Reminiscent of the best artwork from early fencing manuals, the 200+ pen-and-ink drawings are so skillfully executed that they vividly convey the movement of the training sequences.
