The historical Roach Belly was a short blade with a pronounced upswept curve and a sharp point. It was most likely named after the common Roach Fish, which had a similarly round curving belly. It was known in 17th century Britain and quite common in the American Colonies because it was inexpensive and versatile.

Cold Steelís interpretation is a nod to the Black Powder Community, which has continued to appreciate the Roach Bellyís economy, versatility and effectiveness. Our version retains the profile of the original but incorporates the latest in modern materials for its construction. The hollow ground blade is made of 4116 Krupp Stainless, expertly heat treated to Rc 56-57, and given a fine sharp edge thatís easy to maintain.

Instead of the traditional wood handle, ours is made of tough Polypropylene, so itís impervious to the elements and wonít swell, shrink, rot or crack the way wood does.
