Description
CS81B: 81B Wild West Bowie
Cold Steel
 
Styled like the iconic big blades featured in Western TV shows and movies, the Cold Steel Wild West Bowie is a noteworthy American classic. The blade is made from 1090 Carbon Steel and is saber ground and fortified with a false edge to assure maximum cutting, chopping, and piercing power. The handle has a classic profile featuring Rosewood scales attached to the full tang with brass screws and the characteristic "S" patterned brass handguard to protect your fingers and enhance its defensive potential. The Wild West Bowie is kitted with a traditional black leather sheath that features a brass swivel belt loop and leather leg strap.

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Material
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, None
Just good knife
Good overall quality for the price of the knife, however it's heavy. I don't consider weight a problem as I expected it: guys it's very heavy for belt carry and massive. It's more for fun but don't hike with it. It's solid and well constructed. Pretty knife and impressive. I feel like Aldo Raine when I hold it, my jaw goes forward automatically and I feel like scalping Nazis. Not sharpened or pointy as I would expect: just ok sharp.It's big but the handle is confortable.Sheath is not great, I had trouble at first to put the knife in and out, it's not fast to get it in/out: in an emergency it's a problem, you need 2 hands.(Fortunately for him Jim Bowie did not carry that knife in that sheath)

Disappointed
I have purchased many Cold Steel products in the past, and most of their knives have been shaving sharp right out of the box. Not this one. And nowhere on the knife does it say Cold Steel. Even the box is ugly. My knife was made in India. The sheath is well designed and the leather is acceptable, but nothing special. The handle is comfortable. The overall impression of this knife is a lack of the quality that I have come to expect from their products. I can't comment on the steel as I have not used this knife yet, but I suspect that it is not up to CS standards. The brass guard has a blemish/stain. I just hate to see my favorite knife company go down this road.

Great old western classic
I got this knife about a month ago, and it's a beauty. It came pretty sharp, and the fit and finish are great. I've taken it out to play in the woods, and it chops like a demon. Comfortable in my large size hands too. It looks good, cuts good, chops even better, and it's a classic design.The leather sheath is decent..not the highest quality, but absolutely fine. I'm in no hurry to buy a custom one for it for now., but may do so somewhere down the line. I do like the dangler on a knife this big, so kudos to them for that.It is kind of heavy, but that is to be expected for a knife this big. It IS a pretty big slab of steel after all.Cold Steel hit this one out of the park in my opinion.
