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 we know of and 99% of all hand
forged knives as well! We know we're "going out on a limb" with that statement,
but since 1987 we have challenged the industry to make a better knife and yet, to
this day, we've had no takers. So before you spend your hard earned bucks on one
of our competitor's knives, take a moment to review all the advantages offered by
the Cold Steel® Trail Master.
Style and Construction:
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 is seen on our competitor's 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® Kray-Ex™
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.
VG-1 San Mai III® blade:
If you want a Bowie knife that requires minimum maintenance and is practically immune
to water, salt, air, or the humidity of a jungle environment, the VG-1 San Mai III®
Trail Master® is for you! This Bowie will outperform any other stainless steel Bowie
in the world in terms of strength and toughness. And, as an added bonus, this Trail
Master® is equipped with a beautiful rolled edge, capable of easily severing 4"
or more of free hanging manila rope!
