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 Bushman’s 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 won’t 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.
