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.

Bombproof on a budget.
This is my official "back up" blade when I'm camping. For an "all steel" knife, it is very lightweight, and easy to toss in a pack without realizing it's there. The blade is fairly thin, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. It's a good slicer, takes a nice edge, and it keeps it very light and lively in the hand. Makes it good for cooking and fileting tasks as well. However, it is not a very effective chopper, due to it's thinness and lightweight. More on that later though... With many peoples fascinations with thick and hefty blades, it's easy to forget that traditionally, most belt knives were typically thin slicers, rather than "prybars with edges". This knife does not baton as well as it's hefty brothers, but is is tempered with a good enough flex that it will work well without snapping. The handle is very slick, and would do well with either a paracord or grip tape wrap. There is nothing to protect your hand from sliding up to the blade... But then again, this is a bush knife, not a fighting knife. If you want to stab something with it, then affix a handle. Which brings me to my next point. The hollow handle. The fact that it is a tapered handles, rather than the straight cylinders often seen on "survival" knives, makes it MUCH easier to mount on a stick. Trust me on this, whittling down a stick into a perfect cylinder is a pain. Now, everyone assumes you would use this as a spear for either hunting, or protection from game. And yes... I suppose it will work for that. But that ability to add a handle adds two very important utility tasks. First off is foraging. It makes for a great and easy way to cut fruit/edibles from higher branches, rather than just trying to "knock them off" with a stick. The second, and most versatile function, is that it makes for a much better chopping tool. By adding a 12-18" handle, you are now holding a very effective brush knife or machete. This is great if you find yourself in thick grass or briars. It also helps increase the chopping ability of the knife greatly for wrist/forearm sized pieces of wood. If this the best survival knife on the market? No. But this is absolutely the best one for $20. And if I were you, I'd may the extra money for the one with the secure ex sheath. It's a steal of a deal.

Pros: Materials, Finish, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Best value multipurpose knife.
This is possibly the best value bush craft, camp, "Bug out Bag" knife going. From the point of being almost indestructible to the higher carbon content it performs great. As a knife it fits in the larger task oriented category. As a spear it's one of the best. The handle can be wrapped with para cord or Ranger bands. The sheath is decent quality but could be better. I usually replace lower quality sheaths with the Combat Master sheath (Google it). It would have been nice to have the coating described better. It's not bad or detracts from the knife and is meant to protect the steel and prolong the quality of the finish. Overall it is a great blade and one tool option.

Best Knife Deal!
This is a FANTASTIC Deal,for the price! Sure,it's not a custom Binney&Smith,or a Paul Sheehan handmade,super deluxe,that costs more than a new Colt Goldcup,but SO WHAT! This is a perfectly usable,throw into a bailout bag,or in the truck,last ditch survival tool.The sheath is lightweight and durable.My wife bought me this knife to practice sharpening with my Ken Onion Edition WorkSharp sharpening system(also purchased@KnifeCenter),but the blade arrived,razor sharp,right out of the box! For the cost of a lunch,ya' can't beat it!
