Cold Steel has come up with an ingenious way of giving us a hollow-handled survival knife, without sacrificing the strength of a full tang knife. With the Bushman®, the handle and blade are both forged out of the same piece of 2.5mm thick SK-5 high carbon steel, with the handle being shaped into a cylinder capable of being used for extra storage or as the receptacle for a pole, in essence turning your Bushman into a spear!
The Bushman knives (available in Standard and Bowie point) have been expertly heat-treated and tempered, are razor sharp straight out of the box, and come with a kydex locking sheath with a ferrocerium rod for firestarting.
Because grip is so important, we include some non-abrasive grip tape to wrap the handle to give you a better grip on this excellant knife!
The only complaint I've ever heard about this knife is that it is "ugly". So if you're the type that wants beauty in addition to functionality, take a look at some of our other fixed blade knives.
You must be of at least 18 years of age to purchase this product. It is the buyers responsibility to check your local laws before buying.

The bushman is a high quality minimalist knife that you will be proud to own and confident to depend on. The material is terrific and the one piece construction is brilliant. If you are considering getting one, stop procrastinating and buy it. I have both style blades and both are home runs.

I've had a Bushman for over ten years. I've given many of these knives as gifts and no one has ever been disappionted to receive it.
It's versatility and functionality are hard to beat. Stays sharp and is easy to sharpen when needed. Cold Steel makes exellent tools and this is no exception.
When I am in the field, this knife is always in my pack.

I learned most of my survival techniques in the Marine Corps (a long time ago), so I am used to a substantially heavier/thicker knife. I picked this knife up as a spare to put in my go-bag. The versatility of this knife far surpassed my expectations (chopping, slicing), and the ease of turning it into a spear is wonderful. Will it replace my military knives...no. But I liked it so much I purchased a second one to keep on my boat. Great and versatile knife...especially for the price. Love it!!!
