Cold Steel 16DT 3V Trail Master Bowie - CPM-3V Blade - Checkered Kraton Handle - Secure-Ex Sheath

Why buy a Trail Master? That's simple. Because it is, without a doubt, the most knife for the money ever commercially built! In terms of sharpness, edge holding and strength, it will out perform by a wide margin any factory made knife and 99 percent of all hand forged knives as well! Cold Steel knows they're "going out on a limb" with that statement, but since 1987 they have challenged the industry to make a better knife and yet, to this day, they've had no takers.
The broad clip point of the blade is extremely resistant to bending or breaking. This is largely due to the fact that the tip is actually thicker near the point than what's found in most bowie knives. This, however, does not mean that the point is dull or blunt. On the contrary, the point is almost needle sharp and offers tremendous penetration. Plus, the blade-back is equipped with a slightly concave false edge that measures approximately three and a half inches long. Every Trail Master's edge has been honed by hand, then given a high speed buff until it is truly razor sharp and capable of easily shaving the hair off one's arm. This knife is so sharp it will cut at the slightest touch. The Trail Master balances approximately 3/4" in front of the guard for a slightly blade-heavy feel that is ideal for delivering heavy chopping and slashing strokes. The Trail Master's Kraton handle is 5" long and deeply checkered for a non-slip, shock absorbing grip. What's more, its contoured cross section helps prevent the knife from shifting or turning in the hand when striking full power blows. The double guard is very study and rigidly fixed into place. It is long enough to keep fingers off the blade, yet short enough to avoid being tangled in clothing or equipment when the Trail Master is drawn.

"I can’t think of a better knife to take on an outdoors adventure than a Trail Master. Now available in 3V steel it’s more indestructible than ever. Featuring a 9 ½” long clip point blade with an uncharacteristically strong sturdy point it will shrug off wear, tear and even abuse, like water off a duck’s back. What’s more you will be astounded by the cutting power and edge retention you’ll get with 3v steel. Buy it while you can, 3V blades are difficult and time consuming, not to mention expensive to make!" - Lynn Thompson

More about CPM-3V steel
American CPM 3-V can take an extremely fine edge which is highly chip-resistant. In recent years, it has proved very popular with custom knife makers. Though costly, this modern tool steel is astonishingly tough and exceptionally wear resistant. It is a fine-grained powdered steel, with a very uniform microstructure giving it excellent impact resistance and fine edge holding performance, and making it perfectly suited for larger blades where extreme toughness is required.
