Cold Steel Black Sable Knife

January 16th, 2010 - corwin99


The Cold Steel knives just keep on coming! The Black Sable is perhaps the highest end of all the Cold Steel knives that have passed through my hands, and it is quite a decent knife, if you don’t consider it’s retail price of $489.95. Yes, $489.95. Seriously.

Cold Steel Vaquero Grande Folder

December 4th, 2009 - corwin99


I’ve reviewed several Cold Steel knives, even though I am not a huge fan of their knives. The Vaquero Grande is one of their old school designs, one of the ones that have made them popular. It is an affordable lightweight folder, with a massive 6″ blade.

Cold Steel Konjo II Fixed Blade Knife

Are you guys ready for more Cold Steel? Well, either way, I’ve got more for you.

Cold Steel Night Force Folder

September 12th, 2008 - corwin99

This is the first Cold Steel knife I have reviewed on this site, and is one of not many that I have owned. I have never been a big fan of the company, as I see their high end knives as overpriced, and their lower end knives inferior to FRN Spydercos of a similar pricepoint. Having said that, I was quite pleased with this Night Force knife that I received in a trade.
