The Cold Steel Black Bear Bowie’s extra wide, 12" long blade is black powder coated with a matte-black corrosion resistant finish. The Black Bear Bowie’s generous full tang and solid steel guard are completely injection over-molded with fine-textured high-impact Polypropylene, creating a very comfortable but tough, weatherproof grip. Supplied with a sturdy Cor-Ex sheath for ease of carry and convenience of use in the field, the Black Bear Bowie is fast and lively in the hand, and wide enough to chop through small vines and saplings, clear brush and perform admirably in many survival or bushcraft duties. If you are looking for a truly epic bowie knife, but at an affordable price, then you will be hard pressed to find something better than the Cold Steel Black Bear Bowie!

Works
Cold steel has come a long way on the edge quality of their machetes i own several of them. I purchased this one along with a wakisashi for my wife .one will be used for kayaking the other for general brush busting they both preform well for her both required no more than ten min stoning each to clean up and deburr the edge almost all the previous ones I purchased in the past required at least 30 minutes per to make usable

Good deal
This is a very nice bowie Knife / Chopper.I already own one but couldn't pass up on buying another one for such a good price. It's a very good quality tool for the money. Since it's made in South Africa that was another Plus for me. It would make for a mighty fine Camp knife. And it does have serious defensive capabilities. While having excellent chopping abilities. I really like the grip. The sheath will suffice. For the cost you can't complain plus you could always make another one if you want one. But it works for me. I'll be going in the jungle soon and this is the knife /chete I usually take all the time.knifecenter the best place to buy your knives.

Cold steel blackbear Bowie
This is my second review on this knife what I did with the handle was cut a piece of bicycle tire inertube and put it over the handle for more grip after looking at the blade I noticed the grinding / sharpening process bevel was off-center and uneven . Wish it was made in the USA not South Africa .
