Back in the day I bought a Cold Steel Bushman at a gun show. I was fairly impressed with it for all the usual reasons, but as soon as I could afford a "nice" knife I gave it to a friend. For some reason, I got it into my head that I wanted another. I decided I'd get the bowie version, maybe strip the finish and give it a cool paracord wrap and it would be a fun little project as well as a backup knife. Well, the knife arrived from Amazon ($25.24) tonight. I took it out of the box and was impressed with how lightweight it is for such a large knife. There was some sort of protective goo on the shiny edge of the blade and the etched logo, as well as inside the hollow handle. After I tested the blade on my arm hair (a smooth and complete shave) and a page from a magazine (basically fell through it) I set about about wiping the goo off with a paper towel. As I was turning it over I felt a tiny tug on my little finger. There was no pain at all. You know the rest of the story. Suddenly drops of blood were pitter-pattering onto the kitchen floor. Still no pain. It's just a nick, but it's a very clean, very profuse nick. Much like a shaving cut. In any event, I now remember why I love this knife and also gave it away. It's a tremendously sharp pry bar that's hard to hold onto and weighs nothing. A great tool that is incredibly unforgiving. I'm very impressed and properly cautioned.
