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.

Cons: None
Cold Steel Bowie Machete 12" Great!
Love it! Best buy on a knife I ever made. I marvel at the quality I got for the price. It's as sharp as a razor. I have a heavier made Bowie of Damascus Steel that I paid a $100 for, and it is junk compared to this knife. Knife Center does a good job of getting it to you. I bought one, put braided rawhide, (which it doesn't need), on the handle and sent it to a friend. Had a little burr on the blade which was easy to get rid of, and now sharp as a razor.

I don't know what you mean here.
The best buy for the money I ever made on a knife. I've ordered another to give to a friend. Bowie Machete by Cold Steel.
