CS97BWM12S: 97BWM12S Bowie Machete
Cold Steel
 
Cold Steel's Bowie Point Machete is quick, fast, and lively in the hand, making it an outstanding slashing blade and admirable chopper. But its most winning attribute is its clipped point, which makes it an excellent piercing tool. It will penetrate just about any obstacle in its path and will lend itself to knife-like utility jobs when a smaller handier blade is unavailable!

If you always wanted a Bowie knife, but could never afford one, the Cold Steel Bowie Machete can be yours for a fraction of he price.

Fully sharpened, with a tough baked on matte black rust resistant coating and equipped with a sturdy Core-Ex sheath, you will be proud to add this Machete to your collection.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Finish
Cons: None
Great value and multi-purpose
I agree with comments about the value. I bought several to give to in-law relatives in the Philippines who need a defensive knife that can double as large field knife. I am sure they will also use this on green coconuts, roast pig, and large fish. Very fast in hand and easy to carry. I will probably buy more. EDC Philippine style!

RENDEZVOUS BOWIE
I will be using this for my Mountain Man Rendezvous. I've a very long, think & large deer antler that I'll use to replace the handle. NO shiny stainless steel; I'll antique it a bit. Knife came fairly sharp but had some metal burrs on edge. Doesn't matter to me; I sharpen all new knives I buy. If used for camping, this would be great for batoning firewood, although I've not tried it. Would have liked a finger choil, but it's not necessary; I can make one if I want. Nice handle with a solid grip for those who want it as is. PRICE CAN'T BE BEAT FOR THE SIZE AND QUALITY OF A MACHETE BOWIE THAT WILL BE A CAMPFIRE CHOPPER AND A KNOCK AROUND CAMP KNIFE.

Pros: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
That’s not a knife....
THIS IS A KNIFE! Definitely the best value large knife/small machete money can buy. This is what you want in your hands if you come across a wild pig while out hiking or camping.The blade will sharpen to a razors edge with a bit of work on a stone, and being a machete it will take a beating that would destroy other large and more expensive knives.For the price I cannot think of a single other blade that will match it on value for money. It doesn’t have the best finish, but it’s a tool, not a showpiece.Buy it, use it, love it!
