Hunter Bowie From The Bowie Period in American History. Alfred Hunter was a cutler from Newark, New Jersey. He was in the Bowie knife business in the 1830s and 1840s. 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.
The Bowie Period in American History was a turbulent one. It was born on a sandbar on the Mississippi River near Natchez, Mississippi in 1827. A political duel became a free-for-all. James Bowie, who was an observer at the duel, was shot and stabbed through with a sword cane, but he managed to dispatch his major opponents with a Bowie knife.
