CS53NBS: 53NBS Bowie Spike
Cold Steel
Entirely re-engineered for this year our Spike series continue to raise the bar for neck knives! Thin, light and super-tough, their razor sharp, zero ground blades, are complemented by heavily scalloped, textured handle scales that offer a comfortable, secure grip.

Integral quillons provide a safe stop for index finger and thumb, while the textured Faux G-10 provides excellent positive traction even when your hands are cold, wet and slippery.

Available in four distinctive blade shapes (Bowie, Drop Point, Tokyo and Tanto point) they offer all the strength of a solid steel one-piece construction (much stronger than any tactical folder and even rivaling the strength of some boot knives) while still being light enough to carry all day without fatigue.

The Spike series is come complete with a Secure-Ex sheath that provides greater retention and safety. Super lightweight (weighing in at 3oz in the sheath!) the Spikes can be comfortably worn around the neck 24/7 by using the black bead lanyard provided, or carried on a waistband or belt by taking advantage of their Tek-Lok™ compatible design.

Easily concealed, razor sharp and light as a feather – the Spike series by Cold Steel!

Improved Spike Knives
Great EDC neckknife, this is an improvement over the old spike series in every detail, especially the handle and the thickness of the blade. They put a really nice scandi grind on it, and Cold Steel says all their knives come razor sharp out of the box, which is just not true ( for example the larger carbon steel fixed blades), but in this case it is. I bought 2 Bowie Spikes and both of them shave hair off my arm, so well done. Very good quality for the money.

Cons: None
Superb for EDC
Don't worry about sharpening this fine "tool." The grind is Scandi on both sides, and it's even. All you need is a few passes with a flat ceramic and a strop to turn this into a scalpel. Cold Steel hits a home run with this one. The handle is small, but becomes part of your hand. The full tang, fine steel, thick blade, great grip, low price, and single grind beat the Mora -- something I thought no one would do.
