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.
This weapon qualifies as an
improved holdout weapon.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special "Dirt-Nap" attack, which does 80% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 8 fewer action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).
Legend - Type of attack - Skill required - Damage per attack in V.A.T.S. - Action point cost - Damage per action point - Additional effects
Normal 0 46 20 2.3 Dirt-Nap 50 36.8 12 3.07
Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.
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 Edit
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 .
