CS95FB: 95FB Pocket Bushman
Cold Steel
 
The Bushman® has been a mainstay of the Cold Steel line for more than a decade now. It's an economically simple design, with winning features like strength, versatility, and an affordable price. It's practically perfect! So, rather than upstage the Bushman, we've created a complement to it, a version small enough to carry with you everywhere you go. The Pocket Bushman.

While it's physically impossible for any folding knife to ever match the strength and rigidity of a fixed blade, we believe our Pocket Bushman, with its patent pending lock, is close to hitting the mark. The blade is long and wide with a short, sharp, clip point for usefulness and versatility. And it’s hollow ground from top to bottom with just enough belly to be useful for all sorts of tasks.

For the handle, we used the mono block construction method famously used in the French Douk Douk line of knives. There are several advantages to using the mono block. It's simple to mass-produce, and, since there are no liners, handle scales or back spacers, the end result is quite affordable. A single sheet of stainless steel is folded in half to form a housing for the closed blade, as well as supplying the enormous strength and rigidity required to complement our Ram Safe™ lock.

Andrew Demko designed the Ram Safe™ lock to work in tandem with the mono block handle. It features a unique, self adjusting ram that moves forward as the knife is opened and wedges itself tightly between the tang cut away we call the "shelf" and the "U" shaped "roof" of the handle. It's powered by a strong compression spring that urges the ram forward and makes for an incredibly strong lock up. Positive pressure on the lock generated by heavy cutting or chopping strokes is distributed through the blade, then the blade tang shoulder and finally directly into the mono block handle that acts like a giant unbreakable stop pin. Negative pressure from sticking, digging or prying with the point is directed in a different direction through the blade to the blade tang shelf and then to the ram which is squeezed between the shelf and the "U" shaped roof of the handle. Negative pressure easily defeats the vast majority of lock mechanisms. The only way the Ram Safe™ lock can be overcome is if the blade breaks or if the pivot pin is sheared off. Two situations that are highly improbable.

Bushman Looks Good to Me
I bought this knife to use a working tool as part of knapsack of gear for hunting, exploring or whatever. Whenever I may need it, I want it to be tough enough to do things you wouldn't normally expect a knife to do. I don't intend to be gentle or careful with it. The knife is solid with some real heft. I fits my hands well and passes the wiggle and rattles tests. The materials seem to be great quality for the price. The locking mechanism is strong. Opening and closing both require your attention. That's OK. It's not going to be my everyday pocket knife. If you go for solid over fancy, this is one to get.

Cold Steel Pocket Bushman
The Pocket Bushman is a tank of a knife. The blade is made of 4116 steel, a premium steel also known as German Krupp steel used extensively in high end chef knives. Easily sharpened to a razors edge and has excellent edge retention. The Bushman is not a "tactical folder". It takes both hands to close,that being said it makes an excellent hunting,camping,hiking and fishing knife. It also excels as a work knife and everyday carry knife. Being an all steel knife it's virtually indestructible The wedge lock is practically fail proof and about as close as you can get to a fixed blade knife in a folder. The Bushman is a HUGE BANG for your buck. The slim profile makes it comfortable to carry with a pocket clip that has very good retention so it's very unlikely to be lost from falling out of the pocket. It's such an inexpensive high quality knife I suggest getting two. One for your pocket and one for your pack.
