Marauder®, Bowie Knife
Cold Steel®’s sub-hilt knives offer all the advantages and performance of a custom knife, with the additional advantage of being low in cost. The blades are made of Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel and are given a state-of-the-art heat-treatment that includes double tempering, assuring that they are unsurpassed in strength and toughness.
The grip on these blades is a model of efficiency and economy. The handle, guard and sub-hilt are injection-molded in one integral piece out of Kray-Ex™. This reduces cost, yet delivers the durability, security and control a sub-hilt is famous for. And, as an added bonus, renders the handles impervious to moisture or inclement weather.
Honoring the name of Merrill’s Marauders – also known as Code name Galahad, the United States renowned assault unit within the South East Asian theater of conflict – Cold Steel®’s Marauder® Bowie is rugged, relentless and reliable.
It features an extra broad, razor-sharp blade, with a continuously curved edge, deep wide blade bevels and formidable clip point. During the intensive and torturous performance testing of this Bowie, Cold Steel®’s company President simply uttered one word: Beastly.
Suitable for many military, survival and hunting scenarios, the Marauder® is equipped with a versatile Secure-Ex® sheath allowing the knife to be fastened comfortably and securely on a belt or pack, or LBV.
