Description

The Cold Steel Talwar folder was designed by celebrated custom knife-maker Andrew Demko and Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson. It is named after the Indo-Persian sword that was used two hundred years ago.

The Talwar folding knife features a flat ground CPM-S35VN stainless steel blade with a continuously curved cutting edge from choil to the upswept point. The G-10 handle is textured and contoured with pistol grip style finger grooves for comfort and safety. Add to that the strong Tri-Ad lock and the Talwar is the real deal. Includes a reversible tip-up carry pocket clip.

Fast on the draw, the Cold Steel Talwar comes equipped with Andrew Demko's revolutionary ambidextrous thumb plate. By draw-snagging the knife on a pocket the Talwar can be in your hand quickly.

Recently brought back by GSM the new owners of Cold Steel per popular request and they did a SPECTACULAR job. S35VN steel is used and the fit and finish are amazing. This is a 5.5-inch blade that is excellent for EDC and self-defense.

The handle easily gives this knife an additional 2 inch REACH against any aggressor that may be unfortunate to find themselves on the other side of this blade.

This is a premium-built knife you can depend on when you need it most. Its robust construction and quality materials will last and last.

It is a dangerous world out there and you can count on this Talwar to be there when you need it most.
One of the best knives i have owned!

Such solid construction, along with a razor sharp blade strait out of the box. This is a must have for any knife lover due to its shocking size that will silence any crowd. Along with the smaller price making it a very good option to fill any heavy duty roll. Well done cold steel you have done it again.
Razor sharp!

This knife left me grinning and laughing as soon as i pulled it out of the box and deployed it! Has a reasonably thin profile for a folding pocket sword that just barely fits in a front pocket of all my pants.

Be careful in practicing your deployment on this knife as my finger found out the knife is razor sharp out of the box... cut 1/8" of skin right off the tip just from the self close and didn't even feel it! Good job Cold Steel on getting the edge right so the purchaser doesn't have to sharpen it.
excellent knife!

It is the largest blade legal to carry in Texas and caused by the beautiful curved edge, it is very suitable for slicing
Big knife for small price.

The Talwar XL is the perfect mold of simplicity, elegance, and aggression. The wide belly of the blade along with the satin finish begs to be displayed. Yet the flat grind and needle point tip begs to bite into anything that gets in its way (it comes hair splitting sharp). At 5.5 inches in blade length, its a crowd shocker and something that will definitely please knife nuts. The knife itself is more handle heavy, so deploying the knife with a wrist flick may be difficult. The thumb plate may be difficult to use for smaller thumbs, but the wave feature addresses this problem with the "pocket snag" mechanism. The AUS 8 steel holds an edge well and is the easiest of steels I've sharpened. If you're missing a large folder in your collection, the Talwat XL is a great buy.
