Description
CS11HM: 11HM Hold Out III
Cold Steel
 
The Hold Out has fast become one of Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson's favorite folding knives.

Ideal for military and law enforcement personnel, or just law abiding citizens who may find themselves in harm's way, the Hold Out series provide the comfort and peace of mind that comes from carrying a high performance folder but in an astoundingly lightweight and easy to carry package.

Ounce for ounce, they may well be the strongest folding knives in the industry! Their beautiful, minimalist design is a wonder of functionality; while deceptively simple in appearance, they represent a huge array of design breakthroughs and a staggering amount of performance!

The Hold Out's beautiful satin polished blades are extremely broad; they are flat ground from the spine, with a shallow "V" cross-section culminating in a razor sharp hand-honed edge. Continuously curved from the heel to the needle-sharp tip, the blade cuts and shears through tough and fibrous material with ease and makes short work of tasks that would challenge many of the folding knives on the market today.

Its American G-10 handle is a wonder of ergonomic design. Allowing a full and secure four-finger grip. It is wonderfully secure in hand and will not roll or twist with use. The grip enhancing G-10 and handle holes further aid traction in a wide range of grips, working equally well tip up, down in an "ice pick" grip or even held like a push dagger!

Incredibly thin and flat, with an ambidextrous pocket clip designed for deep carry, even the largest of the Hold Out series is easily concealed in a pocket, clipped into a waistband or tucked into a boot. The blade and handle geometry and the positioning of the TRI AD lock in the Hold Outs came together perfectly. Working together to create a knife whose strength versus weight ratio stunned even our own research and development team!

We believe that the Hold Out may well represent the future of multi-functional, high performance every day carry knives.

great knife with a small quirk
very well made, sharp blade that's easy to re-touch, so light and thin that you can forget you wear it. Nice looking, too. The only drawback is that between the firm clip and the aggressive handle material they make it very hard to get the knife out if you wear it clipped in a pocket. On a belt it will probably be ok, but in a pocket it actually tears the fabric before it'll come out. It almost seems like the blade could have been a touch longer given the length of the handle, too, but probably there's a reason for it. Otherwise a great knife.
