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 and tanto blade styles. Cold Steel is also known for developing new blade steels, like the San Mai III, as well as their patented Tri-Lock technology for folding knives.
Cold Steel’s knives, machetes, axes and more have also gained some popularity in Hollywood. Fans of the brand will recognize their weapons in television shows and films like ZNation, The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul, Red, The Expendables, and The Chronicles of Riddick—just to name a few.
