CS95BUSS: Bushman®
Cold Steel®

For the money, the Bushman® knives might be the strongest survival/outdoor knives in the world! Unlike most hollow handled survival knives, there is no joint or seam between the blades and handles that requires a mechanical fastener. Instead, the Bushman’s® blades and integral handles are each expertly cold forged out of a single piece of 2.5mm thick 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® blade has been carefully ground to an extra thin edge, and then honed and buffed by hand until razor sharp. The Bushman® knives are versatile too! Their hollow handles will accept survival supplies or a variety of handle extensions which can maximize reach, leverage or ease of throwing. They are available in two blade styles (standard and the Bowie point). Both feature continuously curved blades that are ideal for skinning, and will pierce, cut, slash, slice and shear like you won’t believe.

They both come complete with our new heavy duty Cordura Survival sheath which features a utilitarian pocket on the front for storing small items.

Older sheath was better
First things first - this is not a high dollar survival knife. I have a Robert Parrish one piece hollow handle, I'll make you a good deal on it, $1,000. The Cold Steel Bushman is what we call a "bush knife" or a "bush craft knife". You can dig, cop, whittle, slice, hack, stab, split and shave with it but for $20, don't expect it to come with a Jimmy Lyle sheath or Chris Reeves monolithic construction. I've had a couple of them, the older sheath was better, it was a simple fitted, riveted leather tube, you could make one for $10-15 and a trip to Tandy Leather. The grip is slick, I solved that problem by tying a loop of 550 cord through the lanyard hole roughly the length of the handle, I slip my hand through it when I'm doing something that might cause my hand to slip forward, the loop prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade. I stuck a rubber cork in the handle near the blade and filled the handle with useful goodies like life boat matches inside a Ziploc bag. A tiny piece of duct tape has kept the Ziploc bag in place since I stuck it in there years ago. I keep one in the bug out bag in my truck and have carried one shoved in my rifle man's bag as part of my field kit for years. You can't beat out for the money and it makes great trade material down range.

Cold Steel Bushman
The most appealing thing about this knife is the price. The way it is made from a piece of sheet steel folded into a handle makes the manufacture process fast and cheap. As it stands, it is an excellent, basic survival tool. The most useful feature of the knife is that in a survival situation it could be converted into a spear. Cold Steel could improve the design if the front opening in the handle was sealed and the back opening was sealed with a screw off cap that was fitted with a washer that was water tight. The hole for the spear handle screw would also have to be fitted with a screw and rubber washer that would render the hollow handle water proof. The handle could be stuffed with matches, cord for snares and other small survival items. I realize that I am talking about an entirely different, more expensive knife but I believe it would be a true survival tool.

Pros: None
Cons: Blade Material
Made in China
This knife seems ok for what it is meant for but what Cold Steel does not tell you is that it is made in China. It's marked right on the blade and that is the first indication you have. They advertise that they make knives in the US, Japan, and in Taiwan. I have bought nice knives with good steel (US or Japanese) that were made in all these places but if I had known this Bushman was made in China I would not have ordered it. Sure it's only $20, so it's probably not even worth the shipping to send it back, but now I know why it's only $20. Come on Cold Steel, you make great stuff, why did you have to go to China?
