Cold Steel Knives was founded in 1980 by Mr. Lynn Thompson as a company dedicated to making the strongest knives ready for anything-- anytime, anywhere. From their classic Cold Steel folding knives, to their fixed blade knives, they've got their signature strength built into every pocket knife.
Cold Steel Inc. was founded in 1980 with the goal of producing the strongest, sharpest knives in the industry. This mission produced innovations which have since been adopted by nearly every other knife producer in the U.S., including Kraton handles, tanto blade styles, and new blade steels. Cold Steel’s weapons have also gained some popularity in Hollywood. Fans of the brand will recognize their weapons in television shows and films like The Walking Dead, The Expendables, and The Chronicles of Riddick—just to name a few.
The fearless leader of Cold Steel, Lynn Thompson, takes extreme pride in his products and can regularly be seen carrying many at any given time. Lynn pushes Cold Steel to make strong knives that can be used in hard-use situations.
