DESCRIPTION: Details Specifications Condition Additional Pictures. The Bush Ranger is a great choice for a bug-out bag. Also, the sleek profile and lightweight makes for a perfect E. Look no further for an excellent companion for Camping, Hiking, Backpacking, Self Defense, Tactical and Conceal Carry. The blade , featuring a full hidden tang, is made of Cold Steel's legendary Carbon V steel - razor sharp, super-efficient full flat grind and treated with Cold Steel's custom heat treatment.The result is an exquisite blade, which offers the utmost in strength, toughness, and superior edge retention. The front of the blade is marked "COLD STEEL" and the back side is marked "CARBON V" with MADE IN U. Carbon V , a highly praised and much sought after steel, was a proprietary chrome-vanadium steel of high carbon and low alloy cutlery grade steel produced for Cold Steel by Camillus Cutlery until 2007 when Camillus went out of business. Because of this unfortunate event, Cold Steel eventually moved most of it's production from the US to overseas.
From Cold Steel about Carbon V: "This heat treatment process is one of our most highly guarded trade secrets". Revered Cold Steel knives like this are always treasured by collectors and a perfect gift for the person who must have one-of-each. The handle is made of textured, shock absorbing Kraton for a firm, comfortable grip. The Kraton is wrapped around a full hidden tang steel core.Kraton is the trade name given to a number of high performance elastomers which offer many of the properties of natural rubber, such as high traction, but with increased resistance to heat, weathering, and chemicals. In Part From Cold Steel: Weather you're going into battle or just for a jaunt in the outback for a few days, there is one knife you'll never want to be without - the Bush Ranger! The Bush Ranger fulfills a need for a rugged, light knife that is large enough to be useful, yet small enough to wear on a belt every day. The blade is flat ground for maximum shearing power, and the razor sharp edge curves continuously. This allows the blade to be used in a highly efficient draw cut as well as a chopping stroke, while the extra curve at the tip provides plenty of belly for emergency field dressing and skinning.
Unlike most clip point knives made today, the Bush Ranger features a Sheffield point with an extra long false edge. The advantage of this point is that it is sharply acute for close, delicate work, yet sturdy enough to resist bending or breaking.The handle has been ergonomically designed to become a natural extension of your hand. The hilt features a deeply contoured cross section which slows the forward momentum of the hand during insertion and resists the hands backward movement when chopping.
