CS10ALC: Counter Point I
Cold Steel

Our Counter Point folders offer almost all the same benefits as our Counter TAC boot knife series but in a smaller, lighter, and more easily concealed package. The blades are in a classic boot knife shape with long false edges and needle sharp points to guarantee the ultimate in penetration.

The handles of our Counter Points are also reminiscent of our Counter TAC's. They¹re injection molded from Grivory and have steel liners to enhance their strength and rigidity. They offer an unusually secure grip for their diminutive size. They're carefully sculptured and contoured with strategically placed holes to reduce weight, and they sport a unique thumb rest built into the butt, affording excellent purchase and a wide variety of grip options.

While no folding knife can ever hope to compete with a fixed blade boot knife in overall strength, our Counter Point folders come much closer than any competitor in their size range due to the revolutionary Tri-Ad® lock. Designed to withstand horrendous stress and strain, it shrugs off impact from any angle without fail and offers a huge margin of safety for your precious fingers.

To enable your Counter Point to be swiftly drawn and ready for action we have equipped them with fully ambidextrous pocket clips and thumb studs. Clipped to a boot top, pocket or waistband, the Counter Points are just about invisible and so light they truly can be carried 24-7.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Its Self Defence Folder. Based on a Boot Combat Knife Blade Design. 4" for good fighting range. Razor Sharp. Beatiful Finish. Stainless. Very light weight for a 4"blade. 1 hand Open & close. Two metal frame Bars inside the handle: for extra strengh: Others CS folders dont have this metal bars (ALM or R1). So you can use it to do a hammer fist if necesary. TriAdLock: 250 Pound lock System. Less than 40 dollars. I EDC this one for defence against Trolls, Zombies and Aliens and a Ontario Rat 2 for Fruits and ropes. This one is better than others 300 bucks just for the Best Available Lock System.

Definitley a Step Up from your Average Knife!
As soon as I opened the box, I immediately realized that I had a bad-to-the-bone knife in my hands. Tried the sharpness by (with the lightest of touches) slowly moving the blade over my hand. Immediately I felt a burning sensation as a millimeter cut had been created by this beast. Sharp is not the word! I researched the Tri-Ad Lock to death and have no qualms with it whatsoever, great system. The handle is of a sturdy build, yet with a powerful grip it will bend slightly. A metal frame would be nice, but would add weight. I am a tall guy with big hands, and the 4' handle is just good enough for a complete 5 finger grip; I wouldn't go any smaller. Great deal, great price, can't beat KnifeCenter!

Cons: None
The counter point 1 is incredible. I have found myself carrying it a lot more than I thought I would. It came razor sharp, it's just as tough as you'd expect from cold steel. Built like a tank, locks like a bank. Overall, great great knife.
