CS95BBUSK: Bowie Blade Bushman, Secure-Ex Sheath w/ Fire Steel
Cold Steel®

For the money, the Bushman® knives might be the strongest survival/outdoor knives in the world! Unlike most hollow handled survival knives, there is no joint or seam between the blades and handles that requires a mechanical fastener. Instead, the Bushman’s® blades and integral handles are each expertly cold forged out of a single piece of 2.5mm thick SK-5 high carbon steel. The resulting knives are expertly heat-treated and tempered to RC54 and, when subjected to our tests, have withstood over two tons of pressure on their blade/handle transition!

Every Bushman® blade has been carefully ground to an extra thin edge, and then honed and buffed by hand until razor sharp. The Bushman® knives are versatile too! Their hollow handles will accept survival supplies or a variety of handle extensions which can maximize reach, leverage or ease of throwing. They feature continuously curved blades that are ideal for skinning, and will pierce, cut, slash, slice and shear like you won’t believe.

They come complete with the new heavy duty plastic Secure-Ex sheath which features an attached ferrocerium fire steel.

GREAT BLADES, GREAT PRICE, OK sheaths.
SO... I just returned from a 2 week camping trip to Alaska. The knife I took with me, my Bowie Bushman. I have been a long time fan of Cold Steel but the Bushman knives have always been my favorites. The first thing I do with them, (I have 4 of Bowie for different vehicles and uses and 2 of the original blade, one of which my wife stole for kitchen work.) is a little blade touch up. They come sharp but a little stone work and they get really scary sharp. Next thing is wrap the handle in about 20 feet of limp snare wire. Then, I wrap the grip in about 30 feet of para cord. I have big hands and it fills the grip and gives me "options" for making my life easier in the bush. With the knife prepped, I can easily make shelter, and maybe with luck catch some food. The blades are durable and will take a lot of work before they need to be touched up. I have been dragging Cold Steel Bushman knives all over the US and Canada for years. I gutted and dressed 3 caribou with the Bushman and never had to touch up the blade. AND heaven forbid, if you do lose it in the bush or have to use it beyond its capabilities (although I am not sure how you could do that under camping situations) the cost is not damaging to ones pocketbook. The ONLY complaint I have ever had is the sheath provided with it. But for the price not everything can be expected to be perfect. The Cordura sheath is floppy with no way to secure the knife and it is too long for the knife itself.(I have always been hoping they were going to build a Bushman that actually would fill out the sheath.) It does have a little pouch on it that can hold some extras. I usually throw a small compass and a fire starter mag/striker block in the pouch. The design does not allow for inverted carry from your pack straps. The injection molded sheath does lock the blade but it is not ambidextrous, and will not work with the grip build out that I do. But either sheath will work for carrying the knife around. Can't expect a $20 piece of leather on a $26 knife. I am going on 69 years old and have been through a LOT of knives and equipment in my life outdoors and I may have paid more for blades in the past but none of them will beat the value you get from a Bushman series from Cold Steel.

Cold steel bushman bowie
So what is it , is it a knife well of course , is it spear it can be, is it a chopper hmmm just, What it really is , is the cheapest most useful tool one can buy ( in my opinion) and made by cold steel, Also a great thrower I own 6 of these and I never set trail without one or two or three or ,well I think you get the jest and gess what I have another 3 arriving any day now so buy one or six you won't regret it take a look at cold steel video on utube if you haven't already, you are always going to get a failure now and then but remember these are built to a budget and you get your money's worth in the knife never mind the sheath

Pros: Weight, Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: None
A smooth round handle is not ideal for a knife. But this knife provides a great way of buying a low cost, strong spear head without shipping a 2 to 4 foot handle. And it comes with a sheath which is great for transport. Too good.
