Cold Steel Bushman Review

The Bushman knife is a 7″ fixed blade knife with a hollow handle that comes with 2 blade styles (Normal and Bowie). The Bowie knife weighs just over 10 oz while the Normal blade weighs just under 10 oz. Both knives cost $37.99 from I will talk about what I think the pros and cons of the blade. (I only own the normal blade so that is what I will talk about)

Blade is Razor Sharp and highly durable (made from SK-5 high carbon steel)
Full tang hollow handle is perfect for stashing survival supplies or making a spear
Can withstand 2 tons of blade handle pressure
Reasonably priced

Knife slips out of the sheath sometimes
