Cold Steel Bushman 12.25" Survival Knife | SK-5 High Carbon Steel, CS95BUSK
For the money, the Bushman® knives might be the strongest survival/outdoor knives in the world! Unlike most hollow handled survival knives, there is no joint or seam between the blades and handles that requires a mechanical fastener. Instead, the Bushman’s® blades and integral handles are each expertly cold forged out of a single piece of 2.5mm thick SK-5 high carbon steel.
The resulting knives are expertly heat-treated and tempered to RC54 and, when subjected to our 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. The Bushman® knives are versatile too!
Their hollow handles will accept survival supplies or a variety of handle extensions which can maximize reach, leverage or ease of throwing and feature continuously curved blades that are ideal for skinning, and will pierce, cut, slash, slice and shear like you won’t believe. Comes complete with Cold Steel's new heavy-duty Cordura Survival sheath which features a utilitarian pocket on the front for storing small items.

Bushland 12.25" Survival KnifeBy: Stephen Austin on 9 July 2020What I really like about this knife is the no -nonsense minimalistic approach Cold Steel has taken with its one piece construction of SK-5 high carbon steel. As with all Cold Steel tools it is razor sharp straight from the box and with the hollow handle , the reach can be extended by means of a branch , broomstick or whatever you have handy at the time , the black coated exterior of the entire knife resists corrosion , but it is high carbon steel and must be adequately maintained.
Great knife at a great price22 October 2019An excellent knife to get into the Cold Steel line up and one constructed in a way that will last a long time. Really sturdy and well sized for general survival/camping work. Really looking forward to using it. Service and delivery was also excellent and fast. Strongly recommend this knife through Extac
Bushman cold steel knifeBy: Peter Cunningham on 17 April 2019I bought one of these knives about 8 to ten years ago it had a leather pouch then and I have to say it was the most versatile tool I've ever owned . Unfortunately I left it in my car about 2 years after I bought it and it was stolen along with the car and though I got the car back the knife was gone forever, well so I thought, that is until a few weeks back when I was randomly searching for an all round durable knife and typed in Kalahari bushman knife and low and behold up came Extac with the exact item. I ordered one right away and it arrived "el pronto" at not much more than I paid all those years back it's the same exact knife brilliantly sharp ,and I'm a chef by trade and I can tell you ,if you can't shave the hair off your arm it ain't sharp enough and this knife was ,straight from the factory. It's versatile ,durable, extremely high quality steel and can withstand heavy use digging ,skinning , cutting fairly large saplings and much more in addition ,this time it came with a fire striker that works a treat. you can attach a spear shaft to the hollow handle as it's forged from only one piece of steel . I'm in the bush a lot and this knife is a great friend for the many tasks I demand from it . Thank you Extac for bringing back and old friend . Pete
