Awesome is the only adjective that even begins to describe Cold Steel's Laredo Bowie. In fact, it really has to be seen to be appreciated, since mere words just don’t do it justice. It features a long, heavy blade made from O-1 High Carbon blade construction, which is precision ground and heat treated to produce incredible cutting power and perfect balance. And, as an added bonus, it is given an absolutely ferocious cutting edge that terminates in a dagger sharp point.

To further enhance its versatility and efficiency as a weapon, it sports a four and a half inch long sharpened clip point that helps facilitate the deadly back cut, as well as a wide variety of more conventional cuts and stabbing attacks. The rich, polished Black Micarta Grip is as tough as it is beautiful. It is specially contoured to fit the hand like a glove and to provide a positive grip when cutting, chopping or thrusting.

To complement the Laredo's incredibly sharp blade and superb handle, Cold Steel carefully forged a unique guard and integral bolster out of a single piece of brass. Both bolster and guard are handsomely detailed and are finished with a fine mirror polish. To keep it safely at your side and ready for action, it comes with Secure-Ex sheath. Also available in San Mai III Steel.

    The latest version of the laredo bowie comes in O-1 steel with micarta handle and secure ex sheath. The SK-5 steel version has been discontinued by Cold Steel. Most agree that the O-1 steel is an improvement, with higher carbon content and improved edge holding as a result. There are some who believe that the SK-5 steel might be a little tougher, less prone to catastrophic failure or edge chipping. Everyone agrees, though, that you won't notice any difference in performance unless you push the knife to its limits, bacially testing it to destruction. So don't be concerned about the steel. It's an excellent knife whether it's in SK-5 or O-1. No less than an authority than Bill Bagwell has said that this is the best commercially made bowie knife available these days. It can be used for camping and wood processing. The new black micarta handle in the O-1 version feels better in hand than the faux cocobolo wood in the SK-5 version. It's also less prone to cracking. I feel the handle is definitely an improvement. I have both versions now and they are the best production knives I've ever bought.
