Description
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.

Pocket Bushman rocks
My camping go to tool. Great for cutting, making kindling, fashioning tent stakes. easy to use, tough to abuse, this highly affordable is the epitome of function. The metal handle is cold on a chilly day but you can't get everything for $20.

Almost my EDC
4 months later...It's just a tad too big for EDC but it's my go to for general construction rehab. It's just the right size and when folded it stays with me...not on the shelf or the floor or the toolbox..and I it doesn't seem to poke holes in the seat if I drive and carry. I can't explain it but It feels really good in my XL hands and in my pockets. Mind you the metal blade point is not a "spike" so don't hammer on it like I did with say the Tanto XL Voyager (when my chisels are the wrong size for cramped work). I think bushman point would bend a bit digging out hard particle board to fit an awkward electrical socket under a sink. Leave that to big Tanto's...(no knives were harmed in these tests). I use the bushman for food all the time...(it's a bushman...what?). It's even wide enough to stick into peanut butter or to slice bread...butter toast...etc. Man it loves the kitchen. Once it dulls a bit...that is...otherwise...straight out of the box.. you'll put a hole in pan...or the cutting board...or the floor if you drop it...and do wear shoes around this thing...one drop the wrong way even kind of dull and you will lose more than a little blood...and you might get hit something..."then one day he was cutting on some food and up from the ground comes a bubbling crude". Oh...because no serrations...it's a dream to sharpen with a steel. Don't go grinding on it either...this thin 4116 steel edge seems to fold over a bit..I think it's ductile...a bit like mild steel. It's tough but not really hard, so sharpening is a waste of metal if you ask me...it just re-profiles for nothing. Just bring back the edge with 2-3 swipes on the kitchen steel and it'll be good to go for the day. Remember...it's a kitchen type steel...it should last a whole meal...if not the shift. Is it better than 400 class steel or AUS 8a? Yes..I think 4116 is comparatively strong and it sharpens easier...I think that's why the blade can be thinner than the Voyagers as a whole and still carry a useful edge. What will the CPM steel be like? I bought oh...maybe 3. I'd buy more but then I'd be another stupid viking knife-nut. (I got off once scott free when TSA found a new 4 inch Mora knife in my violin case...I was afraid they'd confiscate the whole $25,000 violin on the way to a job in Arizona...but I'm old...and I was totally surprised when TSA showed me what they found). Good thing I can't keep guns in the house...who knows where one might get to that I forget. County daycare regs save me and a Bushman is about as dangerous as I can get. Yes...it's a bit clunky but its OK. I'd love a blade shaped a little more elegantly, say like the Boker plus stingray but for $140...fuggidaboutit! Come to think about it...why can't we buy a nice folding Mora for say $15-20? I love that Sandvik sandwich steel even though blades run a bit thick. Who would rid me of these troublesome Moras? My EDC is a 3 inch Tanto Voyager...it's even better than my old 2 3/4 inch Camillius lever flipper...well...except where the Camillius says Made In USA. Sigh.
