Drop Forged Bowie Knife
Cold Steel® Monolithic Axe and Tool® Fixed Blades
Cold Steel® President Lynn C. Thompson has become enamored with the simple functionality of drop-forged knives. Their solid one-piece construction allows for new levels of strength and durability, and their bare-bones ruggedness has an undeniable appeal to Lynn, who's been an avid survivalist, hunter and outdoorsman. These incredibly tough and hard-wearing blades have no leather or wood handle to crack, rot or break, and no loose parts to break, damage or lose in the field. They are easy to maintain and clean, and inexpensive enough that you can afford a spare to add to your hunting pack or bug-out-bag.
Cold Steel®'s Monolithic fixed blades are drop-forged (not cheaply cast!) from 52100 high carbon steel. Their solid steel bodies are expertly heat-treated from the tip of their sharp blades to the butt of their stout handles. Furthermore, each one is ergonomically contoured with a deep trough in the handle for a comfortable and secure grip. Easy to modify and simple to customize, they also make great 'project knives' for re-handling, filework, engraving or any other fun modification projects.
Drop Forged Bowie
Cold Steel®'s President Lynn C Thompson proclaimed that the Drop Forged Bowie is one of the best minimalist Bowie-style knives he had ever held. Inspired by a blade in Lynn's private collection (made by an Arkansas-based custom knife maker), the Drop Forged Bowie is one of the smallest bowie style fixed blades Cold Steel® has ever produced. It features a stiff, sharp 6.75 in. (approx. 17 cm) clip point blade, a sturdy guard and a very comfortable drop-style handle - all drop-forged from one solid piece of heat-treated steel! Lynn went on to say: This is everything you could want in a mini bowie, and it's fast as can be! I love this knife!
The Drop Forged Bowie is sold complete with a versatile and secure Secure-Ex® sheath, allowing for a wide range of carry options.
52100 High Carbon Steel
52100 high carbon is a hard-wearing steel which is an excellent choice for custom hunting and outdoor fixed blades. Often used by custom knife makers in forged blades that require toughness and wear resistance in unforgiving conditions.
