I took the advices of my facebook friends and decided to try this trick again. Cutting metal with a knife intended for more regular knife-tasks isn’t something I consider a smart thing to do. But a challenge is a challenge, so let’s do it and let’s see what happens.
No special effects or unusable edge angles. Just a plain old Stainless Mora Companion with a microconvexed edge, more of less 17 degrees per side and a rather aggressive finish.
Steel – High Carbon spring steel SK-5
Tang – One solid piece of metal with a little hole to accommodate a screw
Length – Total – 31 cm (12″)
Blade – 17.5 cm (7″)
Grind – Hollow
Weight – 280 g (9.9 oz)
Thickness – 2.5 mm (3/32″)
Sheath – Rather crappy nylon pouch but does the job
I don’t sell these things but have to be honest. The Cold Steel Bushman Bowie knife is one freakin’ versatile tool. Take just the knife with you (it’ll barely show from under you shirt) and you have:
1. A knife
2. A javelin
3. A boar hunting spear with wings (lugs)
3. A native american spearhead knife
4. And a machete/parang
All you need to unleash the potential lays right around you in the woods. Get yourself a walking stick and you can quickly turn your knife into a very effective weapon. I really like this thing and its versatility.
