Strongest $25 Folding Knife – Cold Steel Pocket Bushman

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

The Cold Steel Pocket Bushman is the strongest $25 folding knife I have ever seen. It makes a great survival kit knife or backup knife. Even if the lock can be a pain in the neck until you get used to it.

  1. I was just going through my B.O.B. stuff and unearthed my pocket bushman ! Coincidence ? I think not 🙂
    Great review and I am relieved that it passed the balance test !

  2. it may not look cool and the lock may be a pain, but, hey, it passed the balance test with flying colors, so thats a definite plus in my books!

  3. Looks to me like it would be good for an emergency kit or smaller EDC bag where a fixed blade of the same size might have too large a footprint to work. Because of the lock and uncomfortable (looking) handle I don’t think it would make a good EDC pocket knife (and I do carry large folders sometimes.) I have been going back and forth about getting one and if I do I will probably take a spray can of that ‘tool dip’ type stuff, open the knife, stuff the channel with paper and then spray a section of the blade where it is actually gripped on both sides and down the back as well as the thin leading edges on either side of the channel. I did such a thing on a Buck Paklite (fixed blade) with a skeletonized handle and it really improves the security of the grip and comfort without really adding much to the width. As this is not a ‘pretty’ knife I would have no problem with that and think that it might actually improve the aesthetics (such as they are) a little. Wouldn’t care if a little overspray got into the channel – just scrape it off with a razor blade or something. Don’t know how long it would last but if it started to wear I could just spray, again.
