Customer Reviews

Scottish Dirk Reborn!
Chris W. on Dec 5, 2021

I feel like Duncan McLeod with this badazz pocket blade of might! Very solidly built and thin enough to carry as an edc of you so decide. Once this baby is taken out and put into action....good nawight!! As I've said with other large Cold Steel blades, if you do not have a firearm available, this blade is meant for the sole purpose of vanquishing evil! If William Wallace were alive today, he be rollin with this Bad Boy!

EDC for me.
Kevin P. on Jun 25, 2021

I love this knife. It does everything I want in an EDC with emphasis on defense. Incredible piercing power and perfect slicer too. With a lanyard it makes a great slapper closed and with a foot of reach at hand it fits my dress pant pockets well and isn't like hauling a brick around. Purchase is excellent regardless of hand size. Packaged perfect for me with a slim profile it is as big as I can go blade wise and it not be a bother. Cold Steel did another winner here.
