95FBC: Pocket Bushman BD1 Steel
Cold Steel Knives

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, Cold Steel 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, Cold Steel believes the 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 its hollow ground from top to bottom with just enough belly to be useful for all sorts of tasks.

The handle has a 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 the 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.

I cannot say enough good things about this knife! I have several Cold Steel pieces but this one is my favorite; I never go anywhere without it. It's hefty without being bulky, it's very sleek so that it can be worn under clothing and not be visible at all, and there's no plastic or rubber on it to wear out, catch on things, etc. Once it's open it's truly almost as strong as a fixed blade knife. I carry this knife everywhere with me, whether I'm in jeans or a dinner suit. I have complete faith in my Pocket Bushman; as should you. It's one hell of a good blade.
