Mine arrived 2 wheeks ago, i got the Yellow version Big Smile
After ajusting the pivot a little and 2 days of use it became very smooth indeed.
I think it might become one of my top 10 favorite figit knives Cool

Cold Steel might be now the most counterfeited knife brand after Spyderco….

Hard to tell the difference when they even steal the trademark/logo….until you try the warranty.

And how is the quality? Normally I always advise better to buy from recognized brands of the style than what I show on my blog and channel: sanrenmu, kubey, harnds and that.

What worries me is the tri-ad-lock, which is what I like the most about cold steel, along with its designs of course.

The overall fit & finish is at the same level as my original Talwar. The action is very smooth and the blade is centered but it has a slight vertical blade-play. All in all I’m quite happy with it.

Vertical blade-play is a shame, one of the best thing of cold steel knives is the tri-ad-lock and is shocking a “cold steel” with blade play.

I already had to learn to live with that since all of my original lock-back FRN Spydercos have that slight vertical blade movement.

I do not have any spyderco but… that’s incredible due to the quality of that brand Shocked

I have only two lock backs and both without vertical play, one of them is sanrenmu.

One of the best things about cold steel is its tri ad lock, if we take that away we will have its attractive designs, but I don’t know, it is not the same without the security of its locking system. But cold steel prices in Europe are brutal.

Yes, for example ~ $220 for a Recon 1 is quite steep. I’m curious whether changing of CS’s ownership will have any effect on this pricing.

Modding in the knife category is pricey!
I picked up a Spyderco ParaMilitary 2 with a Maxamet blade. The grey scales were too ugly! So I found some Putman sculpted G10 scales and Titanium hardware from ebay, Ti back-spacer and pocket clip, now it looks as sharp as it cuts but man does this stuff add up!

A Sheffield made Taylor’s Eye Witness penknife.
It gets a lot of use.

Tweezers and a pick are inserts in the handle.

His little bother.

It’s not legal to carry any non folding knives and most folders here
in the nanny state.

Pen knives and multi tools are the only blades permitted
here in the nanny state.

Did I mention nanny state ?

I had a Barnett crossbow it was kited out to the max scope, bolt rack, stronger pond bow it was a piece of art. Than I got busted with it not fun in NSW.
It ended up in that trailer the police take around to schools and shows like the Easter show showing their great work they do for the community it was on display under confiscated weapons.

By the way I also have plenty of folders just stirring the pot.

later

That’s a bugger. I see the mini compound bows available and wonder about some tweaking with a rifle stock.

I think the next knife that I will purchase will be the Kershaw Cannonball 2061.

It currently sells for $47-$50 on most sites, and it's a 2021 knife.

(I'll wait until the price drops.)
