|The Bowie Knife of Alfred Hunter
Alfred Hunter was a cutler from Newark, New Jersey. He was in the Bowie knife business in the 1830's and 1840's. His bowies were top quality then, and very rare now. The notch on the blade is called a Spanish notch, a feature found in several variations on some early Bowies.
