For the money, the Cold Steel 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 Cold Steel Bushmanís blades and integral handles are each expertly cold forged out of a single piece of 2.5 mm thick SK-5 High Carbon Steel. The resulting Cold Steel Bushman knives are expertly heat treated and tempered to RC54 and, when subjected to Cold Steel tests, have withstood over two tons of pressure on their blade / handle transition!
Every Cold Steel Bushman blade has been carefully ground to an extra thin edge, and then honed and buffed by hand until razor sharp. The Cold Steel Bushman knives are versatile too! The hollow handles of the Cold Steel Bushman Knives will accept survival supplies or a variety of handle extensions which can maximize reach, leverage or ease of throwing. The Cold Steel Bushman Knives are available in two blade styles; Original and the new Bowie style. Both Cold Steel Bushman knife styles feature continuously curved blades that are ideal for skinning , and will pierce , cut, slash, slice and shear like you wonít believe.
The Cold Steel Bushman Knives come complete with the new heavy duty Cordura Survival sheath which features a utilitarian pocket on the front for storing small items.

The Cold Steel Bushman Pocket Knife
The Cold Steel Bushman Pocket Knife has been a mainstay of the Cold Steel line for more than a decade. The Cold Steel Bushman Pocket Knife is an economically simple design , with winning features like strength , versatility and an affordable price. The Cold Steel Bushman Pocket Knife is practically perfect! So, rather than upstage the Bushman, Cold Steel created a complement to it, a version small enough to carry with you everywhere you go. The new Pocket Bushman.
While itís physically impossible for any folding knife to ever match the strength and rigidity of a fixed blade, we believe the Cold Steel Pocket Bushman , with its new patent pending lock, is close to hitting the mark. The blade is long and wide with a short, sharp, clip point for usefulness and versatility. And itís hollow ground from top to bottom with just enough belly to be useful for all sorts of tasks.
For the handle, Cold Steel used the mono block construction method famously used in the French Douk Douk line of knives. There are several advantages to using the mono block. Itís simple to mass produce , and , since there are no liners , handle scales or back spacers , the end result is quite affordable. A single sheet of stainless steel is folded in half to form a housing for the closed blade, as well as supplying the enormous strength and rigidity required to compliment the Cold Steel Ram Safeô lock.
