    Cold Steel's Bowie Point Machete is quick, fast, and lively in the hand, making it an outstanding slashing blade and admirable chopper. But its most winning attribute is its clipped point, which makes it an excellent piercing tool.

    If you always wanted a Bowie knife, but could never afford one, the Cold Steel Bowie Machete can be yours for a fraction of he price.

    Fully sharpened, with a tough baked on matte black rust resistant coating and equipped with a sturdy Core-Ex sheath, you will be proud to add this Machete to your collection.

    FINALLY ! IT'S BACK!!! This is one the BEST Bowies on the market for the money, the size and balance,blade shape, handle-everyting, it's perfect. The old Bowie Machete has been selling like crazy on the secondary market, everyone wants one! If you want a REAL GOOD Bowie and can't spend a lot of $$-GET THIS, sharpen it, and learn to use it, you won't be sorry.

    Of all the machetes that Cold Steel has produced this is by far my favorite !!! Light weight, will take a razor edge, piercing power is awesome, it is fast in the hand, super slashing ability, I added a survival pouch to mine, thanks Cold Steel for reintroducing this awesome blade !!! My next purchase is the Barong machete !!!

    I grew up working on a banana plantation and I've been using machetes since the age of 5. I am very happy with the Bowie machete. I've used it for chopping small branches, clearing weeds, cutting up boxes and even spliting young and old coconuts.It performed admirably. I was especially surprised at how well it works as a small knife 'fill in'. It did very well at chopping meat as well as slicing and dicing vegetables. I've even filleted fish with it. The only other "test" I haven't put it through, which I would like to do, when I get the chance is to skin a goat or deer. I think it'll do the job but the clip point will not tolerate any clumsy knife strokes. A fantastic knife at a great price. Recommendations for improvement. At 400g, it is a bit light and an additional 150 to 200g will add more cutting/chopping power without it being too heavy. Secondly, I would add a finger groove close to the handle, to improve EDC-ability. Thirdly, don't sharpen the false edge. Leave that to the discretion of the buyer. I prefer an unsharpened false edge. The clip point is sharp and "pointy" enough but leaving it unsharpened will keep it durable and less prone to breaking. This is a fantastic machete-knife.

    Great machete. Love seeing Cold Steel bring it back. Please bring back the 18" blade. Have had one for years and swear by it. Nothing better for a tool or weapon in the marshes of Louisiana,
