Same opening setup as on the TI Lite, and I thought the TI Lite was as big as anyone would ever want for a folder....
oh wow, it looks smaller in the pic. Video was huge
i just picked up the "mini lawman" from them... pretty damn sharp out of hte boxand feels real good in the hand but the paint is already chipping off on the pocket clip as well as the base of the blade where it rubs up agains the handle when you fold it. ive only had it a week
"Yes officer, I only carry it for opening boxes, cutting twine, casual beheadings, etc..."
seriously... that thing is pretty damn big to consider just a pocket knife
I do live in TX just be like its in case I catch a mexcan drug cartal
No, I don't call that a folding knife. I call it a piece of mall ninja shit.
Cold Steel makes good shit
Nobody could possbily ever need a knife like this for hunting or camping. Impossblie oh wait and lol at me mal ninja
Is it stupid for me to ask if I can get this in CA?
It's sad that you have to.
Cold Steel makes shit knives out of shit steel with shit locks. Get a Benchmade, Spyderco, Emerson, or Chris Reeve if you want a proper knife.
Unless, that is, you like a knife with a subpar steel, shitty heat treatment that leaves it only slightly less malleable than butter, and a lock that will leave you missing a couple fingers under any real stress.
Cold Steel makes shitty knives, flat out. Thank you Lynn Thompson for convincing people that because it's shiny, it must be a good knife.
Funny because the knife that still locks p like a rock for me is my lawnman and I've abused the fuck out of it. All of my arc locks on benchmade have failed at least once, same for sog knives, same for kershaw, I mean theres people batoning wood with this knife and still locks just fine. And shit steel they use the sane steel as most other knife companies
my lawmn even got run over by a 5ton and still locks up like new
My Recon 1 locking mechanism can support my body weight (215lbs). It holds an edge just as good as my Benchmade.
I only bought the Benchmade cuz the Cold Steel was too big for EDC.
Knife cant do shit

AUS8 is shitty ass steel. D2, S30V, M2, S60V, those are good steels. AUS8 is soft as butter. Yes, real knifemakers also offer blades in AUS8, they just offer their cheapest ones using that.
And thank you for mentioning SOG and Kershaw, because those are only marginally better than Cold Steel, and there's a reason I didn't list them in my original post.
Finally, if you need to baton a knife through wood, use a goddamn fixed blade. If you're camping, there is no reason to rely on a folding knife when a fixed blade is far more stable and safe.
Ive also had Benchmade (still have it but needs to send it off to be sharpened), Spyderco (Opening is like a rusty door, sent it to spyderco did the same thing in 3months, sent it back got another one sold it), had an Microtec Auto (Sold it didnt need it anymore). But guess what they all needed to be sharped at some point or another
And SK-5 isnt a bad steal either RC of 58
And S60v is a pita to sharpen without any real hardness gained because I owned a spyderco made out of that bullshit
And Ive broken every knife I have owned, fixed blade and non fixed blade
And I hammered the knife in some wood this morning and jumped up and down on the handle and still didnt break the lock. Weak ass lock can take a 220lb man jumping up and down on it.
