  1. Historically, the Roach-Bellied knife was a short blade with a pronounced upswept curve and a sharp point that saw popularity in 17th century Britain and the American Colonies. It was most likely named after the common Roach Fish, which had a similarly round curving belly. Cold Steel’s model is a nod to the Black Powder Community, which has continued to appreciate the Roach Belly’s economy, versatility and effectiveness.

    The hollow ground blade is made of sub-zero quenched German 4116 Stainless steel, expertly heat treated to RC 56-57, and given a sharp edge that’s easy to maintain. Instead of the traditional wood handle, ours is made of a tough injection molded polymer, making the Roach Belly considerably more weatherproof than historical examples - not swelling, shrinking, rotting or cracking like its wooden counterparts.

    Due to Royal Mail's new prohibited knife policy which came into force with effect from 1st November 2019 we will no longer be able to use them to ship bladed items. As a result, we now need to use courier deliveries and there is a significant increase in cost to us for posting. A £3.50 post surcharge is now made on any bladed purchase. If you purchase a multiple number in one transaction only 1 surcharge is made.

    YOU MUST BE OVER 18 TO PURCHASE A KNIFE. A CHECK WILL BE MADE, ON YOUR AGE, THROUGH A BASIC VOTERS ROLL SEARCH AND IN THE EVENT WE ARE UNABLE TO FIND YOU REGISTERED, WE WILL EMAIL AND ASK FOR COPY PROOF OF AGE PRIOR TO DISPATCH OF THIS ITEM.
