The Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III
Why buy a Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III?
That’s simple. Because the Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III is, without a doubt, the most knife for the money ever commercially built! In terms of sharpness, edge holding and strength, the Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III will out perform "by a wide margin" any factory made knife we know of and 99% of all hand forged knives as well! We know we’re "going out on a limb" with that statement, but since 1987 Cold Steel has challenged the industry to make a better knife and yet, to this day, they have had no takers. So before you spend your hard earned bucks on one of their competitor’s knives, take a moment to review all the advantages offered by the Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III.
Style and Construction
The broad clip point of the blade of the Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III is extremely resistant to bending or breaking. This is largely due to the fact that the tip is actually thicker near the point than what is seen on competitor’s knives. This, however, does not mean that the point is dull or blunt. On the contrary, the point is almost needle sharp and offers tremendous penetration. Plus, the blade-back is equipped with a slightly concave false edge that measures approximately three and a half inches long. Every Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III's edge has been honed by hand, then given a high speed buff until it is truly razor sharp and capable of easily shaving the hair off one’s arm. This knife is so sharp it will cut at the slightest touch. The Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III balances approximately 3/4" in front of the guard for a slightly blade-heavy feel that is ideal for delivering heavy chopping and slashing strokes. The Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III's Kraton® handle is 5" long and deeply checkered for a non-slip, shock absorbing grip. What’s more, its contoured cross section helps prevent the knife from shifting or turning in the hand when striking full power blows. The double guard is very study and rigidly fixed into place. It is long enough to keep fingers off the blade, yet short enough to avoid being tangled in clothing or equipment when the Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III is drawn.
If you want a Bowie knife that requires minimum maintenance and is practically immune to water, salt, air, or the humidity of a jungle environment, the VG-1 San Mai III® Cold Steel Trail Master® is for you! This Bowie will outperform any other stainless steel Bowie knife in the world in terms of strength and toughness. And, as an added bonus, this Cold Steel Trail Master San Mai III is equipped with a beautiful rolled edge, capable of easily severing 4" or more of free hanging manila rope!
