I'd really love to see a video "proof" that this blade is as badass as my imagination has me believing.

This is a long over due knife. The only thing I can see it needs is an optional black finish. Continue the good work.

Lynn Thompson's characterization of this knife as "beastly" is an understatement. I've been around a lot of combat and Bowie knives and I've never seen ANYTHING like this thing. It feels more like a battle axe than a "Combat Bowie." Glad for the double quillion grip--otherwise not sure how well anyone could handle it. The spine thickness and construction are daunting--I could see a backhanded whack doing almost as much damage as a slice. I'm a 1990's fan of Carbon V, so I was a little apprehensive when I read "AUS-8A," but this thing's durability, stainless qualities, toughness, and edge have made me a true believer. And it's a bargain--I've handled knives 2-3 times more expensive that pale in comparison. I'll be carrying this monster with me on every outdoor adventure from now on!

I received my Marauder blade this past Thursday and I must say for the price this is one of your best fixed blades...I especially like that the clip point or drop point or whatever you call it is reverse ground so that the tip or point of the blade becomes almost as wide as the spine giving it a blade point that wont snap off or chip away-for that to happen you would have to deliberately misuse and abuse the blade beyond the tolerances it was designed for. :)A superior blade!!!

truly an awesome knife, I put it to the test and it did everything I wanted it to do and more, plus it was still hair popping sharp after woods. don't know about the sub hilt though that's the only negative. this knife is why cold steel can claim they make the world's strongest sharpest knives in my opinion.

you guys really should make a stress/ torture test video to show what the blade can do. I know that it's a top quality item, and I met a guy who owned a pocket knife that was just a little pig sticker made by cold steel. he had it for 20 years and never sharpened it. so imagine what a 9 inch bowie blade made by cold steel could do... I'd like to see it in action!

I'm really impressed. I'm not usually a fan of the hollow grind but this thing cuts great and is holding up quite well. I'm used to wider handles but this thing still feels awesome. It's far from my stoutest knife but that wasn't my purpose in buying it. It's got a long blade and looks huge but the weight isn't that heavy. My favorite thing about this knife, and the reason it has become my "Woods EDC" is that it handles like lightening! No knife this big has any business moving so quickly in the hand! It's amazing in that respect! As a defensive blade against man or beast it is confidence inspiring to say the least.
I have seen people on other sites complain that it's too big for skinning. I don't know who buys a massive Bowie to skin with but hey, whatever. It does have a long curved blade so unless it just scares you I say it's a good enough skinner in a pinch. I'll be using it this deer season just to prove it's skinning prowess. Anyway. Not my fanciest, sexiest, thickest, strongest, longest, or sleekest knife... just the one I choose to carry out where I'm most likely to need it. The only thing I'd change would be to give it a sharpened swedge, but I suppose we can't have everything.

This is a very nice crafted smooth light knife. I did the old cold steel knife tests stabbing the point into two by four wood. the tip kept its point and did not break. next I hacked into the wood and it chopped off pieces like butter but was disappointed to see that the blade edge had gotten bent and brittle. re-honed it with a smith sharpener and the edge was back to shaving sharp. please other people try this and post your review. love your knives cold steel.
