Tough, durable, and solid is what should come to mind when you hear Cold Steel. Lynn Thompson’s Cold Steel has been making knives and sharp tools since 1980. They offer a wide variety of knives, from karambits, folding, assisted, fixed, and much more. Many of the Cold Steel folders feature their patented Tri-Ad lock. The nice thing about this lock is that it requires very little maintenance.
