Cold Steel
Today’s military operators carry the most advanced gear in human history, but a high-quality blade is still essential equipment on the battlefield. For these discerning customers, Cold Steel has created the Chaos series of hard use tactical fixed blades.

Inspired by the trench knives carried in the World Wars of the 20th century, Cold Steel is updating the concept with some of the most fearsome historic blades to ever grace the battlefield.

The original trench knife was developed for close quarters combat (CQC) and earned a terrifying reputation in the trench raids of the Battle of the Bulge. The combination of "brass knuckles" and either a spike or double-edged blade proved so effective, that development of new designs continued through the Second World War.

Exhibiting a big wide blade and false edge, the formidably intimidating 80NTB Chaos Bowie is well-suited to thrusting, cutting, and slashing. It also blocks and parries with equal ease and is saber ground to a sturdy edge and honed razor sharp. The extra thick 1055 carbon steel pommel is tapered to concentrate the percussive force of a hammering strike, and the full tang SK-5 High Carbon steel blade is expertly heat treated for maximum performance. It’s a highly affordable Bowie and sure to please even the most discriminating warrior. 

The Chaos features a split D-ring handle constructed of 6061 aluminum. Not only does this signature trench knife feature protect the users hands from slippage and incoming attacks, it also provides a striking surface for combat situations. Likewise, the butt of the knife features a deadly tapered pommel to concentrate the percussive force of a hammering strike.

As good as the blade is, you need a way to carry it, so Cold Steel sees fit to supply a tough Secure-Ex sheath. Here at KnifeCenter, we especially appreciate that it is both MOLLE-Lok and Tek-Lok compatible. This rough-and-ready item also comes with adjustable Cor-Ex belt loops and retaining straps, ensuring maximum safety and retention. The sheath can also be customized to nearly any preferred attachment, thanks to extra grommets and slots along the edges.

The Chaos series combines maximum safety and security with extreme performance and combat potential. Equip yourself with one!

Cons: None
Slightly modified...
One helluva bada**ed Bowie Knife! I got a hacksaw out and cut off the knuckle guard. Next I filed in some checkering on the handle. Finished it off by wrapping hockey grip-tape around the aluminum handle. This shifts the weight just a bit more forward. Man can this MFer chop!

A tank that handles like an humvee
Short version:pros: sturdy, VERY well balanced, very sharp, well madecons: no shock absorbance in the handle at all, main portion of the grip is a trifle slick, sheath is a bit loose.Overall: quick, sturdy, rock solid fighter for a damn good price.Long version: just a warning, i will nit-pick here. pros: this knife is about as sturdily built as you get. thick spine, solid hilt with no wiggle, and both bolts and a pommel nut keeping it together. the blade is shaving sharp, with a very nice point on it, and a nice saber grind. the finish is fairly standard for cold steel of this price range, so no complaints there.the balance of this is what makes it, though. this thing is heavy. there is no two ways about it. the spine is 1/8 of an inch thick and the guard is solid metal that seems to be pretty thick, but it balances out beautifully. the point of balance is about 1/2 inch in front of the guard, and the knife itself is incredibly lively in the hand, which, to be honest, i did not expect at all. it cuts and slices very well, as you wild expect, but it can do quick snap cuts like a knife half its size. the point is very sturdy and sharp, as one would expect, and the false edge would be simple enough to sharpen, should you feel the need. the hilt/fist guard itself is extremely solid and well made, and would do serious damage to anything that got hit by it, though i did have to de-bur a small area on the back of the fist guard, as it took a bit of hide off my finger. i should also note that the handle itself is much more suitable to people with larger hands, as the finger notches and reinforcing bar in the guard are a bit large.Cons: the only real cons i can find here are more nitpicks than anything, but still are a thing. the hilt has no shock reduction at all. anything you hit, the shock goes one place: your hand. granted, this isn't really intended to be a heavy-duty chopper, but it still is a bit of a con. the other con of the is basically another nitpick, and it is that the hilt, apart from the crossbar and d-guard, has no real traction for your hand. it could be argued that with a guard like that it isn't needed, but its still a problem, at least to me. the sheath, while not bad, isn't anything's set up, at least initially, for tip-down cross draw carry. the sheath's retention isn't great. if you hold it upside down the knife will fall out. it does the job, but that's about all. To sum up: this thing is a monster that is built like a tank, but handles extremely well, especially for less than a hundred bucks.
