Cold Steel

The Bushman has been a mainstay of the Cold Steel line for more than a decade now. It's an economically simple design, with winning features like strength, versatility, and an affordable price. It's practically perfect! So, rather than upstage the Bushman, we've created a complement to it, a version small enough to carry with you everywhere you go. The Pocket Bushman.

While it's physically impossible for any folding knife to ever match the strength and rigidity of a fixed blade, we believe our Pocket Bushman, with its patent pending lock, is close to hitting the mark. The blade is long and wide with a short, sharp, clip point for usefulness and versatility. And it’s hollow ground from top to bottom with just enough belly to be useful for all sorts of tasks.

For the handle, we used the mono block construction method famously used in the French Douk Douk line of knives. There are several advantages to using the mono block. It's simple to mass-produce, and, since there are no liners, handle scales or back spacers, the end result is quite affordable. A single sheet of stainless steel is folded in half to form a housing for the closed blade, as well as supplying the enormous strength and rigidity required to complement our Ram Safe™ lock.

Andrew Demko designed the Ram Safe™ lock to work in tandem with the mono block handle. It features a unique, self adjusting ram that moves forward as the knife is opened and wedges itself tightly between the tang cut away we call the "shelf" and the "U" shaped "roof" of the handle. It's powered by a strong compression spring that urges the ram forward and makes for an incredibly strong lock up. Positive pressure on the lock generated by heavy cutting or chopping strokes is distributed through the blade, then the blade tang shoulder and finally directly into the mono block handle that acts like a giant unbreakable stop pin. Negative pressure from sticking, digging or prying with the point is directed in a different direction through the blade to the blade tang shelf and then to the ram which is squeezed between the shelf and the "U" shaped roof of the handle. Negative pressure easily defeats the vast majority of lock mechanisms. The only way the Ram Safe™ lock can be overcome is if the blade breaks or if the pivot pin is sheared off. Two situations that are highly improbable.

Really cool, tough knife
This is a tough knife! I have hammered it through 14ga sheet metal. I've used it as a prybar. I've used it to cut drywall. For what it lacks in holding an edge it makes up for in sheer toughness and strength, which I value greater than edge retention.The lock is not hard to use. I use it differently than in the product video by holding it as though you are gripping the knife, and placing my thumb on the spine of the blade. I then pull the locking mechanism and push the blade's spine with my thumb. This is easier and quicker than the way they show.The handle is made of a hardened steel, I know as I have engraved it and it was tough as well! It is a good engraveable knife as the entire thing is a clean slate. It is not the most comfortable handle but I believe this is of course due to the fact that the handle itself lends much to the rigidity of this folding knife, so I list the handle feel as a "pro".My only gripe is the joint between the handle and blade. Too loose and it wobbles, too tight and it is a struggle to close. I exchanged one of the PTFE washers with a copper washer because I found that once dirt entered beneath the PTFE washers, it became very gritty opening and closing. While it is slightly tougher to open and close with the copper washer, it is much smoother and will still provide a solid joint between the blade and handle. I wonder if there is some other alternative. Of course, this isn't the most expensive knife, so I would not file my gripe as a "complaint", because for the price point it exceeds it's expectations overall.I have convinced quite a few people to purchase this as well and they were all happy with it, despite at first being irked by the odd closing mechanism, they of course realize its advantages soon enough.Couldn't be happier with it!

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
Not easy to open and close, but a very strong tool
An absolutely incredible deal at $30. Strong & very solid capable of real use and abuse. While I cannot say for sure whether "cyro-quenching" really improves the lower-end 4116 blade steel, it has certainly stood up to the punishment I've meted out so far. You need manual strength and dexterity to operate this knife --- closing it in particular isn't very easy, especially when the knife is new. Makes sure to following the closing instru8ctions packed with the knife.

Yeah no
You absolutely HAVE to use two hands to close this knife and if you don't practice a certain technique, you could severely cut your fingers. I don't see all the hype about Cold Steel.
