I have this knife in blue and like it a lot. For the price it is hard to go wrong.

I find it perfect for hiking when I go deeper into the backcountry and want something robust but still light. For local hikes I normally carry a Ka-Bar Dozier which is sufficient.

I won't go into specifics on the knife as there's plenty of info out there. In short knife is light, strong, steel is fine, and I don't think the Tri Ad Lock would ever fail for my usage. Good price, outstanding value for the money IMHO.
A real workhorse

Super sharp out of the box, but needed to work on the action and the tri-ad lock to loosen things up.

Once a little TLC was applied... it's great.
Great knife at a great price!
Extremely Sharp!!!

I have had this knife for a little over a week now. My first Cold Steel . and was intrigued over the Tri-Ad Lock. It was a little stiff at first but after working it a bit, it has settled in nicely. The 4116 steel while not a super steel sharpens to a razor sharpness, though the factory edge was extremely sharp out of the box. You won't find any better for the price if you are looking for an every day carry. Blade HQ was very professional in fulfilling the order and fast shipping. A+

Incredibly stiff lock to close. I have only Just received the knife less than 6 hours prior writing this. I'm sure it will loosen up overtime. The 4116 was easy to sharpen to a mirror polish. And I love the clip point.

Minus a Star because it is relatively difficult to close due to the super strong Tri-Ad lock.
Nice Knife, Very stiff lock

The lock on this guy is reaaaally stiff. Overall nice Knife. I bought it primarily to give this german 4116 steel a try and so far its held the sharp factory edge quite well after about an hour of whittling. So I'm pleased.
Good budget folder

Good build quality. Size and weight suit me very well for edc. I like that good ol' clip point blade profile. The blade arrived VERY sharp.
I was expecting the Tri-Ad lock to be stiff, and it is. I will be working on that.
A good purchase, made even better by excellent BladeHQ service.
