    I have seen all the stress testing videos that Cold Steel made when the Triad-lock was being rolled out so I have seen it beat all the other main names on the market. Many of those blades were double and triple the price of the Cold Steel blades tested and the Triad-lock still smoked them all!
    And thus the claim they make on their website is (in my opinion) valid.
    Although in the interest of honesty I did not like the 'sharpest knives in the world' Cold Steel claim … as this is just dumb!
    I use a Hapstone V7 with DMT diamond stones and then diamond laps down to 0.1 microns. I then strop them with kangaroo leather and 0.1 cubic boron nitride from Ken Schwartz so I have the sharpest knives in the world … many of them being Cold Steel but they did not come out of the factory like that!
    Here are a few examples …
    Watch from 20min 56 sec.

    Watch from 3min 20 sec.

    Watch from 10min 15sec.

    "Ton of a great designs they keep in production year over year"… Except my favourite EDC knife Hold Out 3. For some reason they discontinued whole line of 3 inch folders with Hold Out and Recon 1 versions among others.

    Wish CS revamped The Recon 1 series(and other models) with less sandpaper-like G10 to slightly smoother G10 especially under the pocket clip. As well as deeper carry low profile pocket clips.

    I love Cold steel knives have a bunch of them but I hate GrivEx. It's too damn slippery. They need to use a reinforced nylon or some type of plastic like the material in Spyderco handles.

    My Code4 went directly into my EDC pouch. I can carry all the gimmicky and joyfull knives in my pocket, but when it comes to business, it’s always ready!
    I never expected that I would like Cold Steel so much!

    Have an espada xl i bought at the great american sportsman show years ago from the cold steel stand. Love it. Had the ti lite xl and a few others as well. All well built, sharp and can take some abuse.

    Love Cold Steel , the biggest area they need to improve on is pocket clips, they have the worst pocket clips in the industry. Lynn Thompson hates Benchmade, but take a leaf out of their book when it comes to pocket clips.
