Making a triumphant return to the Cold Steel line, the Bowie Machete represents a hybrid of two popular styles--the short machete and large camp knife. At just shy of 1/8" thick, the 12" blade is both heavier than the typical compact machete while still being lighter and leaner than most large camp knives. A tremendously useful and economical choice that offers an interesting mix of advantages for anyone in need of a small and nimble chopper that still strikes with authority.
If selecting the Special Grade option we will:
~Sharpen the unedged 2" at the base of the blade
~Thin and refine the factory edge
~Square the spine for fire steel striking and tinder shaving
If selecting the Special Grade Plus option we will also sharpen the clip point.
