Cold Steel 1917 Frontier Bowie VS Cold Steel Natchez Bowie

May 30, 2021
What's happening on YouTube is that Donnie will be on all day and I'll bring you the best and the most desired versus versus I guess that's what it is all the time. I'm talking guys, this is the success that people want to see and you. I can't see it if it's blurry, so you'll have to endure. Today I bring you the versus of two extra-large masterpiece buoys from Cold Steel. We got the damn

1917

Frontier buoy and Cold Steel, not the damn Chaz buoy, that's right. Cold Steel needs to add the word freakin' to these knives because they are that good, starting with the ever so beautiful buoy notches, oh my goodness, this brushed finish is absolutely perfect.

I just made a couple of Cisco blades where I wanted to imitate this finish because they are so pretty and they actually came out perfect, so if you want to see how to make a shiny knife look like this, oh my gosh, watch the video, but I will tell you that This guy here is a monster. You don't have specs yet because I'll show you this one first and then we'll talk about sheaves for half a second or a little bit longer. This guy here, the

1917

Frontier Bowie, is just ridiculous. I'm going to get into that and just a couple and man man oh man but before we get into this let's see what houses the sheaves now when you talk about a mousou style buoy in Natchez you want to think about a leather sheath which is what goes through your head you're thinking about a leather holster 11. functional leather holster because that's what you use for that, not

cold

steel

, they give you one of these, she's that, what is this polypropylene? or more or less he's the ex-boss for sure, you know? a plastic, it's tough, it definitely does the job and the good thing is that Bowie can be used as a survival buoy because it has all the mooring and holding areas for your line, for your striker, your filler rod, your magnetic rod, your sharpeners, anything you want.

More Interesting Facts About,

cold steel 1917 frontier bowie vs cold steel natchez bowie...

I want to attach to this I'm going to attach you have a lot of room to put a lot of things there is a lot of room here this is also adjustable and it's ambidextrous I love that I love ambidextrous sheets because I'm left handed so that helps This one I still have because I didn't change it. I don't know why I didn't, but I'm pretty sure I will. This is a velcro latch so you can take the belt on and off without having to put it on and take it off. from the belt and it seems to me that the sheath is not leather, however, this is a pretty good sheath even though it doesn't match the very good knife, so let's get into the 1917

frontier

bowie

sheath, this thing is great for a different one. which is why you have your leather sheath attached, it's sewn on the back, you have your classic metal tip with a little ball on the back, you have your big, beautiful leather bow that's kind of like a pendant, right? , it is not an out-of-office case.
cold steel 1917 frontier bowie vs cold steel natchez bowie
The pendant is attached but what makes this one so cool and I don't even think I showed you his, it has a metal guard around it is the removable frog that you see you just slide it on and you can remove it at the bottom and you can use that frog for swords and stuff like that, whatever you want, you can even hang a knife as is, but then it goes back on and you have the scabbard like this and I think they actually have a sword that matches this knife. and if you have that knife and that sword, you can take off this frog and use it for that sword, then you can put the knife in the sheath and put it away so you can have both.
cold steel 1917 frontier bowie vs cold steel natchez bowie
Frog is just not useful and not only does it work, but it is just beautiful and god, that leather smells good. It's a very, very nice case, it's very, very well built and I really appreciate this. well, nice knife holder, so now let's get into the big bad old blades that we love so much first, the buoy notches, this thing is like 17 and 1/8 overall, it's a pretty long knife, thinking yeah, the 19: 17 is just a little bit more, I wasn't sure about that, so 2:19, so this has a pretty decent cut, it's not completely sharp, but it's pretty close, you know, when they say a false edge, this is it. an edge as false as you. you can get it without it being an edge, that's a really great feature, the only thing that would be bad is "but the awning at the end of the blade, however the blade is so big that you don't need to hit the end, the rosewood handle". it's extremely comfortable, oh okay, 11 and 3/4 inches of

steel

not just normal, this is o 1, this is o 1 steel, this is fantastic, this thing is sharp, strong and well built, you'll see.
I made individual videos on both knives. Take a look at them, take a look at them, you're going to dig them and I mean, when you look at a long clip point like this, especially something that tapers, you're going to think okay, it's got to be weak, it's going to bend it, something will. It just so happened that I pried this out, I threw this out, I added some snippets from the individual videos into this video, which you'll see after I finish doing all of this and the first thing you'll see is that I pulled this out in one piece. like a panel and it hit and when it hit it did one of these deals that stayed, but you know, it fell all over the place, not a single hint of curvature, not a trace of curvature, the thing is just incredible, I think it is. a quarter inch I think the notches are actually thicker and by a pretty good amount, but it's a noticeable amount, but it's still pretty thick.
I think there's a quarter inch just amazing yeah 11 three quarter inch blade oh 1 steel the handle the grip is just typical Musso Bowie I love it I love it I love it it's like a tombstone shaped, you have the brass, the brass ends are just stunning and this is the good thing about this knife, above many others, and some people have a problem with it because I think it weakens the knife, but you don't really see this Little Boop. I'll show you this in a normal video too if I can get it into focus. You see that little stem right there, that little peg.
That's not the end. a rat tail is not a full tang, it doesn't go all the way through the tang, it actually stops around there and then from there to there they have this braided metal cord that is amazing and attaches to the back and what is that. because it takes away the vibration, so when you swing and hit this thing and you can swing and hit this thing against almost anything you swing OOP, it takes away the vibration in your hand, makes it more comfortable to swing and hit against things which is pretty awesome, It's a unique feature, it's very very useful, there is no coil or ricasso usable so all the grip will be from the handle so having a comfortable handle is a must and they absolutely nail it.
With this knife, let's get into the one that has a toy but still has a comfortable handle. This guy here I think the handle is like five and three-eighths on its own, but the blade on that one is 11 and three-quarters of this one. It's 12 and a quarter, so you're looking at, you know, half an inch longer on the steel itself and I think the handles might be about the same, so the total length of the lugs probably because I didn't measure them, I don't know almost almost eight. and maybe 17 three quarters somewhere in there, but this here is 1085 high carbon strong strong strong strong strong is a true full tang, so you have the tang running all the way to the end, although it's not shown here, it's stops correctly. there, the rosewood just ends at the top, it has a screw system here that holds the handle, it has a steel S-shaped guard, it has this weird notched part, but interestingly it's very comfortable, that was the Only part I didn't think about.
I was going to like it when I bought this knife. I loved. The Fuller of this blade is the Fuller of a sword, not the Fuller of a knife, but man, this thing is just ridiculous. Now they are both fighting knives. Okay, any

bowie

is a fighting knife. that's what it is, it's made to protect you in the wild and especially back then, that's exactly what they were made for, it was a fighting and survival knife, you did all your camping, cooking, hunting, fighting with a single blade , that was it, you had a blade and this big beast here would be all you need is uh it's your ax it's your shovel it's your fighting knife it's your kitchen knife it's one shot do everything I feel like Gallagher up here I should smash this on a watermelon but It does it again, it has a false wedge edge here, but it's not as sharp as that.
This one is a little rounder, so it's a little better for Abbot Awning. The difference is when it comes to pushing, which is a little difficult. I say one is better than the other because these will cut through anything, that one with a sharper tip will push better, but when you talk about these two knives there is no such thing as actually pushing better because I mean I don't want to get stabbed. that's why these guys are amazing when it comes to handling comfort, man. I'll tell you, this guy's comfort here is just evading almost anything.
The steel on this thing, the o1 steel, is just phenomenal. great, great, I have a SRK from Cold Steel in San My that I have to bring you. I haven't brought them yet. I brought you a bunch of other things. I haven't brought you my SRK, but I have to show you. because the San my is phenomenal and I think you can get them at San my Steel, however one is pretty much all you'll need, it's very good, this one here in the 1085 is a very, very solid steel, the edge holds up. Apparently it's extremely better than my approach and again, it's not something you have to worry about destroying because these blades are just yeah, so this is what I want to do.
I'll show you a couple of video snippets that I had already taken when I did some reviews on these and then after those little snippets you'll see some action with these two that I do today live for you right here, don't be all day on the YouTube channel, boy, it's okay, so stay tuned, I don't know. what was that don't worry about seeing little bits and after that we're going to do just a couple more things with these blades here wait just so you know I'm going to start by showing you some pictures of the notches but that was just a little opening a little bit of ours just before starting with the knife.
I just threw this thing there, took this intense curve and turn, but that long clip point held firm, so I decided we needed to time it a little, so I just threw it here on this little piece of wood and took another piece of wood because well, that's how photonics works, but you know that and then I decided to take the edge off this knife that hasn't been touched since and it's Still, it was fantastic. I was cutting around a bit with this thing and at one point I realized that this blade was so magnificent that I didn't even have to swing it to make it work.
I was dropping the blade on the wood and it was destroying it, so you know, I had to throw it at this thing that the man has five meters away and it took off like a bird in the air. So what about all your typical knife skills, like shaving wood and stuff like that? Yes, the notch like Bowie is made to destroy everything. I mean, the blade on this knife is incredibly sharp and even though it's absolutely gigantic, you can see the ease ability, it's a real word. Don't know. I check knives. Guys, what you hear.
That? that guy just said it's beautiful, he's just an amazing, amazing man, I'll tell you what, let's take a look at the border buoy and then we'll use both in a second with the border buoy. I didn't start by throwing it at some wood to test the tip. I just knocked the tip off a little bit of milk, but then I think I hit the back of it again and hit it again. I think let's see, let's see, oh man, I love this now. yeah, so I just asked the question in the video, does it cut?
Look at this, does it cut? Are you kidding? This thing walked through it like it didn't even know it was in the wake. I started to sway and it started to disappear. That's crazy, so here it comes. the vacuum hose test Boop, look at that, man OOP, look at that, man, look at that, man. I'll tell you that Bowie from 1917 is crazy talking about an amazing sword, he looks at that camera work sucks even when I'm holding it up. at the damn tv and screaming it's actually a computer screen, but look, that speaks for itself oh yeah, I almost forgot it's a ginormous sword, can it still be used with delicate control and precision?
Yes, I could see the Santa Cruz sign right there, check that out. man, they know what they're doing when they make these knives, they just know what they're doing, okay. I say we present these knives together once again, but this time in a vs. yeah, let's get together right now, okay. let's use these guys right here, so it's very easy to cut some things. I have this guy, I hope you can see him. Let's make it a little more manageable. Here's one. I'm left-handed, but I'm going to back away. with my forehand because this guy shouldn't be doing the job, whatever hand he uses and of course he does.
These guys are just fantastic beasts and where to find them. They are incredibly incredible knives. Let's cut something a little thicker. that was just a little sample of these guys come on okay so here we are in The Woodlands make sure I have them ready here yeah I have them ready here so I have this big fat one. tree right here this thing is uh this thing is pretty big, so now we havethis big fat guy here, we check him out and see, okay, and we see what it takes to get through something like this now.
I'm obviously hitting much better with this right now because I'm on my right hand, so if I switch them, I guarantee that, as you can see, hitting with my right hand is better. I have to say this could be a better helicopter so I should probably stay on the other side because it is thin. on that, but he'll follow me, you can see, oh, these guys are beasts, I mean beasts, it's still falling, I'm just going through this right here, it's just man, I figured out how I swing with my right hand and it's no good worth bragging about.
These guys are helicopters, they are helicopters, now I have a reason. You should check them out. I'll show you a second, literally, it won't take long because I need to get through something. Now we need some kind of bottle, so let me reflect. Hmm, reflect. I'm going to cut a piece real quick, guys, from another one that I already removed. I'll even bring it out, so here, put that down there, man, like that, like halfway, right there, throw it out, look. I don't know if you guys can see how much I'm getting out of there, but it's a lot, a lot of wood in one cut, which is crazy, so it should be here good enough for you to see.
What I'm going to do is leave this one here, maybe there we're just going to nail a piece of wood. Now I need you to take this guy and we're going to hit him and he's obviously very wet because I just left him. but it's not going to be a problem in general like that, it's not a problem, stick that there will probably fall, maybe not, let's take this guy here and the same thing, just crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, well, let's take him away a slab to this guy here. okay going from a chunk to a wedge chunk very quickly just amazing amazing amazing yeah wow so what we did was obviously do half a wedge now we're gonna take this guy and overall the bite I gotta Saying that the notch has Bowie has more of a bike in a precision cut.
I have to give it that, I mean, I go right through them to the tree, but you can see it's just making paper cuts like this, really really easy, so that's it. checking that out, wait, I got a phone call, I just missed it, it's not that bad, so let's put these guys on the shelf and say which one I think should be the one if you could only pick one. I'm glad I don't. I have to choose well, well, here we have them on YouTube, my brothers are fanatics of knives and lovers of steel. This is the hardest decision I will have to make in a versus.
I'm pretty sure of that because not only do I like these two and I don't even love these two. I love these two knives. I mean, two of my absolutely favorite knives on the planet are here and today I have to decide for you that if only I could have one. only one could stick to my person, which one would it be and if I were to say from the beginning without doing any of the hard work which one would it be, I would probably say 19:17, you know, having the total herringbone construction, you know, a sweet Asgard.
I'm going to cover it with the fuller large, it's just that beautiful sheath, it's just amazing, the notch has buoy, it's pretty much one of my favorite knife shapes though, that knife shape is there even though the 19: 17 has pretty much the same shape, something about that mousou style bowie is just an absolute love for me, so if it were P early on first look I'd say it's like Bowie without a doubt, but here's the thing: it's the Complete package. Let's review the sheaves. The case for the 1917 Bowie is much more attractive and much more comfortable in the hand.
You can take it apart and use it to carry a sword. I mean, the thing is cool, though, if I'm talking about practicality. long term and if I can only have one and that means it would have to be not just a fighting knife but a survival bowie, then I have to notch it like Bowie on the sheath because the material of that sheath alone is indestructible . I mean the material is as durable as you're going to get, it's ambidextrous which I love, it has lashing points all over so as a survival tool the holster definitely has to reach the notches, and when you talk about that, you know what?
It's going to be a final decision, it all has to be part of the opinion and that's a pretty big decision for me, the grip, although it's smaller and I have huge hands, I just appreciate the notch grip like Bowie and it's hard to say. That's because it makes it seem like I'm taking my grip off at 19:17 and that's not even remotely true. I love that grip, it's very comfortable in the hand, however for my hand the notch has Bowie so far. As for the shape of the blade and its usefulness, you know the pieces. I guess you could say the choil is a definite win for me and the fuller bigs are a definite win for me.
I love them so much and if I was considering that then I would do it. Say the nineteen seventeen, if I was using the forend, since it's a fighting knife, you need to be able to turn the blade in your hand and have that giant downward sweep on the S guard, which is great if you're on a knife. fight or someone hit you with a stick that will protect your first fingers without a doubt, but as far as maneuverability, you have more maneuverability with the notch like Bowie and that Strait protector that is a little smaller, so for me, although 19:17 is much more suitable for a real knife fight when you're talking about using them as a fighting knife and protection, it's not a guarantee that the next guy Bigfoot comes along will also have a huge bowie, so on this day and The age of a handguard is more to prevent your hand from hitting the blade than something from hitting your hand, so you would have to deploy the notch like Bowie now as far as Tang construction goes, since Bowie notches have a genius.
Tang with a basically shock absorbing cable inside and it's cool and amazing, however there's nothing on the planet stronger than a real full tang, a real full tang, so that's why I would have to say that the 1917 buoy has thicker notches. and while both are high carbon steel, the notch has a buoy made of O, one that takes the cutting edge to 1085 without a doubt, in my opinion, fit and finish. They are both

cold

steel knives. Both are notable. they are built so strong and beautiful that you can't remove the finish from the blade, you can see that the buoy like notch has no markings on it, I mean it's just a nice beautiful satin steel and then you would look at the black coating on the 1917 and there's not a single part of that black, that black coating removed around the edge, that when you look at the Becker like the BK, the bk7 and all that, that black coating comes off almost after the first use, you start to wear it down.
So kudos to Cold Steel for that, but as far as the finish, I want to say they're pretty even because none of the finishes are destroyed by the use and use of these knives. I use all my knives and these are something I like to handle sharp. For the edge it is a little difficult because the notch has a buoy. I think it's a better knife for chopping, it's just that the bite on that thing is really healthy and it's crazy because it's a thicker knife, but the ISM edge is better for cutting, but that's the cut. skill and not just the sharpness of the edge as far as the darkness of the edge, they are pretty much the same.
I mean, there's no real way to top anything, huh, so I mean finding a clear winner is just impossible, I like throwing knives though. and I have to say, it's a pleasure to throw that 1917 bowie, it's a really nice knife to leave in your hand, so what do I say? My first inclination was before I even started. This was going to be the 1917 bowie which was the first thing I thought of, but as I swing the notches and feel the bite that's going into the wood when I cut down those little trees, you know, I have to say I'm the narrowest of the margins and I'm talking You have to split the hairs here, if I had to choose only one for the rest of my life, it would be the notch like Bowie and it is so painful to say that looking at that 1917 because there are no defects in that knife that would make me choose something . above but the same thing happens with the notches so I'll tell you what happens if you are watching this video because one of these knives has caught your attention and you don't know which one it is, you won't be wrong.
You won't go wrong with either one just because I say this is the one I would have doesn't mean it's the one you would have because they are both incredibly phenomenal and I will tell you what if you get the chance. You will both love them. The best pair of knives. I think for any company out there, the best extra large buoy combo is right here staring you in the face. These are the best. The cold steel notch like Bowie in the cold steel

frontier

of 1917. Bowie is two aces up his sleeve, talking about aces up his sleeve, yeah I'm Donnie, I'll be around all day and until the next knife.
