The first Smith & Wesson Texas Ranger Bowie, made in 1973

It is one of the original and first S&W knives which came out in the early 1970's. It is stamped TEXAS RANGERS 1823-1973 on the blade as seen in the first photo below. The box is mint with several small marks. The box has the Texas Ranger Commemorative Commission seal on top.

Smith & Wesson brought out the Texas Ranger Bowie Commemorative in 1973 that was designed by John Wilson and R.G. Jinks. The Texas Ranger Bowie was the first knife made by Smith & Wesson. Then the next Smith & Wesson knives were designed by Blackie Collins and came out in 1974 and were discontinued when the second group came out in 1980.

* In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Rangers in 1973, the State Legislature creates the Texas Ranger Commemorative Commission with the goal of raising funds to build a Texas Ranger Hall of Fame at the Texas Ranger museum in Waco.

The facility was dedicated in 1976 and as the Official Texas State Hall of Fame for the Texas Rangers and renamed The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum.

It is worth the trip to Waco, Texas to go through the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum. They have several original 1800's English Bowie knives that are worth the trip just to see them. Highly recommended!
