CS97BWM12S: 97BWM12S Bowie Machete
Cold Steel
Cold Steel's Bowie Point Machete is quick, fast, and lively in the hand, making it an outstanding slashing blade and admirable chopper. But its most winning attribute is its clipped point, which makes it an excellent piercing tool. It will penetrate just about any obstacle in its path and will lend itself to knife-like utility jobs when a smaller handier blade is unavailable!

If you always wanted a Bowie knife, but could never afford one, the Cold Steel Bowie Machete can be yours for a fraction of he price.

Fully sharpened, with a tough baked on matte black rust resistant coating and equipped with a sturdy Core-Ex sheath, you will be proud to add this Machete to your collection.

Bowie MONSTER machete
I bought this on a whim and boy what a surprise ! Hair popping sharp right out of the bag . This is Cold Steel QUALITY , too bad the company dropped the ball with the other "machetes" . I haven't seen quality like this since the early 90's .

12" Bowie Machete Review
This Bowie machete is exactly as described and expected. There were no surprises. The balance and heft are appropriate for light chopping, clearing vines or light brush, and if you take time with the edge it's pretty good as a knife. Being that it is all black, I highly recommend tying it to the sheath, a belt or belt loop, something, so it doesn't get left on the ground somewhere. I would like to see an option for a LH sheath. I did not list finish or blade sharpness as pros because finish of a machete is unimportant to me and I feel the edge on a machete is my responsibility to get it to my liking.
