This was gonna be a quick review of the Cold Steel Bushman Bowie to follow my previous video showing some less known tricks and applications. But turns out I actually had a lot to say in response to the criticism that one of my viewers brought up in the comments.
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.
