The Cold Steel Bowie Blade Bushman knife might be one of the strongest survival/outdoor knives in the world! There is no joint or seam between the blade and handle, which gives the Bushman unparalleled strength. The single piece SK-5 high carbon steel is cold forged, heat-treated and tempered to RC 54. The blade has been carefully ground to an extra thin edge, and then honed and buffed by hand until razor sharp. The hollow handle will accept survival supplies or a variety of handle extensions which can maximize reach, leverage or ease of throwing.
The Bowie Blade Bushman comes complete with Cold Steel's heavy duty Secure-Ex sheath with ferrocerium fire steel.
The amount of abuse this thing can shrug off is insane, I've used it for brush, branches, vines, and even small trees. Even without the price in mind, it's a very sturdy lightweight chopper that can do just about anything you put your mind to. Even if you already have a nice outdoors knife, this one is a must have if you want something you can beat on and not feel terrible afterwards.
I watched a few review videos and did my homework before purchasing. I look forward to using this in the field. The guy who came up with this design stands on the shoulders of giants. Because, there is so little material that makes the whole of this . . . I feel I have ended up with a $100 knife for a much more reasonable price. Thank you COLD STEEL
