CS95FB: 95FB Pocket Bushman
Cold Steel
 
The Bushman® has been a mainstay of the Cold Steel line for more than a decade now. It's an economically simple design, with winning features like strength, versatility, and an affordable price. It's practically perfect! So, rather than upstage the Bushman, we've created a complement to it, a version small enough to carry with you everywhere you go. The Pocket Bushman.

While it's physically impossible for any folding knife to ever match the strength and rigidity of a fixed blade, we believe our Pocket Bushman, with its patent pending lock, is close to hitting the mark. The blade is long and wide with a short, sharp, clip point for usefulness and versatility. And it’s hollow ground from top to bottom with just enough belly to be useful for all sorts of tasks.

For the handle, we used the mono block construction method famously used in the French Douk Douk line of knives. There are several advantages to using the mono block. It's simple to mass-produce, and, since there are no liners, handle scales or back spacers, the end result is quite affordable. A single sheet of stainless steel is folded in half to form a housing for the closed blade, as well as supplying the enormous strength and rigidity required to complement our Ram Safe™ lock.

Andrew Demko designed the Ram Safe™ lock to work in tandem with the mono block handle. It features a unique, self adjusting ram that moves forward as the knife is opened and wedges itself tightly between the tang cut away we call the "shelf" and the "U" shaped "roof" of the handle. It's powered by a strong compression spring that urges the ram forward and makes for an incredibly strong lock up. Positive pressure on the lock generated by heavy cutting or chopping strokes is distributed through the blade, then the blade tang shoulder and finally directly into the mono block handle that acts like a giant unbreakable stop pin. Negative pressure from sticking, digging or prying with the point is directed in a different direction through the blade to the blade tang shelf and then to the ram which is squeezed between the shelf and the "U" shaped roof of the handle. Negative pressure easily defeats the vast majority of lock mechanisms. The only way the Ram Safe™ lock can be overcome is if the blade breaks or if the pivot pin is sheared off. Two situations that are highly improbable.

Cons: Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Handle Material
Impressive, large and razor sharp folder
I knew this was a two hand opener knife. It was hard to pull back the small rope on the handle and I got pinched while trying to open it. Nevertheless, I was impressed by the sharpness and size of this knife. This is a very useful tool that reminds me of a heavy duty utility knife. I would use this knife when camping although I would use gloves for better grip as well as safety. I would like this size knife as fixed blade but not as big as the bushman.

The sturdiest most secure feeling folder ever- closest to fixed blade
There isn't a more solid or sturdy folding knife to be found ANYwhere. That does cause some compromise in the way you have to be really careful to open and close it with both hands (unless you have really really massives hands and finger strength) (bigger than my XL) but it also makes it great for use with gloved hands, in contrast to most if not all liner locking or back locked folders. The blade arrived sharp enough to amputate digits with if not handled carefully and, given the enclosed (and attached around the closed blade and handle) warnings on how to CAREFULLY open and close the knife, you'd have to be a total zero to cut yourself with it then. However, I got a little careless with it a few days later and got a nick for my lapse of attention. My B-I-L was so impressed and complementary of mine, I ended up buying him one too for his birthday. I of course bought it from knife center because there is no lower price to be found anywhere. To be fair, I did find the inside edges of the handle a bit sharp when grasping it for use barehanded, so I used a sandpaper drum on my Dremel to take them down amd round the over just the smallest little bit, which made a huge improvement. That said, the handle was created by folding over a single smooth piece of heavy stainless steel, so it's not very grippy at all, and I am thinking of adding some ridges of Sugru to improve my grip on the metal. All told though this was the sturdiest folder I have ever picked up, and the blade was sharpened second to none right out of the box.
