CS11SDS: Brave Heart
Cold Steel

The highland warriors of Scotland’s distant past carried a small yet lethal knife with a distinctively carved wooden handle. It was called the Skean Dhu (which means “Black Knife” in Gaelic, the ancient language of the British Isles). Typically, a kilt clad warrior carried it covertly on his person or wedged in his stocking top.

Cold Steel’s latest version of this romantic and historically significant knife is called The Brave Heart.™ Designed by Lynn C. Thompson, it is a small, compact, multi-purpose knife, that will serve admirably as an hunting or utility knife or as an alternative to a double edge boot knife. The thin, needle sharp tip is ideally suited for piercing, and the precision taper ground blade has been honed by hand to razor sharpness. The traditional jimping on the blade spine is both ornamental and functional, providing an aggressive non-slip platform for the thumb or forefinger to bear downward as needed for maximum control.

The compact Kraton® handle is designed to accommodate a wide variety of comfortable and secure grip positions, and its slim, flat cross section insures that it will resist turning or twisting in the hand. Kraton,® is a superior handle material that Cold Steel has employed for decades because its robust traction and resiliency allows it to withstand the shock of even the hardest blows.

The Brave Heart™ comes with a lightweight yet sturdy Secure-Ex® sheath that’s been specially designed for an inconspicuous presence. It comes with a detachable boot/belt clip and lashing slots so you can wear or carry it everywhere you go.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Good looking and very sharp blade. Comfortable and easy to carry in boot or pocket around camp. Downside is it is hard to tell in the dark which side of the edge does the buisiness. A nasty cut could result if not careful. A great backup knife though but will not replace my KA-Bar short as my go to all around camp knife. Then again thats not a fair comparison. This diminutive blade will do very nicely formost uses and punches above its weight.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Great knife for every day carry. Light to the point of I don't notice it's there and with a pistol, flint, small flashlight, and spare mag, keeping weight down is important. This is a great utility and self defense knife. It cuts like a lightsaber.

Disappointed in the Braveheart
Overall I'm disappointed in this knife. The blade is very thin and appears to be kinda on the cheap side.
