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.

Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
This is the best deal you will find today. This little knife is extremely sharp, so light it will go unnoticed in your pocket and at less than 30 dollars is a no brainer bargain. The criticism that it is hard to close is not true. You just need to push on the far end of the lock and not the middle. In fact, it is one of my favorite knives and one that I now carry all the time. Get it!

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
pretty good
The clip is tight to the point that it makes trying to clip it to your pocket useless. I just drop it inside my pocket instead. It seems sturdy and well made. It might make for a good "glove box" knife. I would not go so fay as to call it just a beater though.
