Cold Steel Bowie Bushman Survival Camp Bushcraft Knife Tough SK-5 High Carbon Steel
For the money, the Bushman series of survival knives are hard to beat! Unlike the majority of hollow handled knives, there is no joint or seam between the blades and handles, instead the Bushman’s blade and handles are cold forged out of a single piece of 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 has been carefully ground to an extra thin edge, and then honed and buffed by hand until razor sharp. Their hollow handles will accept survival supplies or a variety of handle extensions which can maximize reach, leverage or ease of throwing. Available in two blade styles (Standard and Bowie point) both feature curved blades that are ideal for skinning and a multitude of bushcraft chores. Both come complete with a Secure-Ex sheath which houses a high-quality Ferrocerium Fire Steel.
