Bowie knife is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on .
The Bowie knife has a large clip-point blade and a riveted brown handle. Small contact marks mar the edge, and streaks of what appears to be blood can be seen running across the sides of the blade and the hilt. The blade is stamped with the serial number 02280.
It has a
special attack, which does 80% damage in Dirt-Nap V.A.T.S. at the cost of 8 fewer action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).
Template:Melee special attack table
It is possible to
execute Dirt-Nap outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.
The Bowie knife can successfully strike about 495 times from full
condition before breaking.

Like the teddy bear, the Bowie knife behaves erratically when picked up, (when placing it on a table, etc.).
Behind the scenes
The Bowie knife is a knife popularized by Colonel James Bowie in the early 19th century.
Giving someone a "dirt-nap" (the knife's special V.A.T.S. attack) is common mobster slang for killing someone, similar to "sleeping with the fishes". The term "dirt-nap" is used many times by Set in the original .
