Bowie Bushman, Survival and Outdoor Knife with Hollow Handle
For the money, the Bushman series of survival knives are hard to beat! Unlike the majority of hollow-handled knives, there is no joint or seam between the blades and handles that requires a mechanical fastener. Instead, the Bushman's blades and handles are cold-forged out of a single piece of SK-5 high carbon steel! The resulting knives are expertly heat-treated and tempered to RC54 and, when subjected to Cold Steel®'s tests, have withstood over two tons of pressure on their blade/handle transition!
Every Bushman blade has been carefully ground to an extra thin edge, and then honed and buffed by hand until razor-sharp. Their hollow handles will accept survival supplies or a variety of handle extensions which can maximize reach, leverage or ease of throwing.
Available in two blade styles (Standard and Bowie point), both feature curved blades that are ideal for skinning and a multitude of bushcraft chores. Both come complete with a Secure-Ex® sheath which houses a high-quality ferrocerium fire steel. Strike it on the spine of the blade and start a roaring campfire in no time!
SK-5 High Carbon Steel
Japanese high carbon SK-5 is traditionally used for making a variety of hand tools, including chisels and woodcutting saws. With good all-round toughness and excellent edge holding capabilities as well as excellent abrasion resistance, it has stood the test of time and seen use in many countries.
