From the text:

Jensen broke his own nose with a pistol.


Because late that same night he borrowed a pistol, gripped it by the barrel, and used it like a hammer to break his own nose.

Strunk stole his Jensen's jackknife.


But in the morning Lee Strunk couldn't stop laughing. "The man's crazy," he said. "I stole his fucking jackknife."
