    Noboby knows how to shut a lockback properly with 1 hand. Brush the back side of the blade slightly against your hip until closed.It works easy. Works great with triad locks. Ive been doing it for years

    Seems great for any kind of outdoors man/rancher/farmer/oil field kind of job. Good size for that and no one is going to freak when you pull it out. I could not wear it in the office, 3.5" is as large as I go.

    I doubt they ever had any intention to sue anybody for San Mai III. There is a law/stipulation that you must defend your trademark or risk losing it so you see companies sending out jackass letters because of this but they don't usually really care or want to do anything…it just allows them to go on record for defending a trademark.

    Um…that reveal with the 2 knives under it. Video brilliance. My girlfriend–whats up with that guys voice lol. Me–hey, if this guy says a knife is good it's good. If this guy says a knife is bad–like, it's bad.

    There was a time I would have loved this knife. I have a Back Sable (the real thing) and a couple of swords. Now that I am older my Cold Steel fixation has waned. This is a interesting blade but I wont spend $300 for it.

    The Cold Steel 4 Max is actually intended to be an AD-10 XL:
    The hole on the handle in front of the blade is actually for Aesthetics. However, originally it was designed as an extra line of safety to prevent the blade from closing on the fingers of Lynn Thompson on another version of Andrew demko's knife which originally had a lanyard with a pin to be placed in the hole. Lynn Thompson took the knife on safari and Andrew wanted to make sure not to have one of his knives cut the Bosses fingers. Hence the hole.
