True Cold Steel Quality
I am an avid fan and collector of Cold Steel blades. For some reason I had been hesitant in the past to add the SafeKeeper III to my Cold Steel collection, allowing me to complete the SafeKeeper series of blades. I have both the large and smaller SakeKeeper I & II tactical fighting daggers, with the original SafeKeeper I & the more recent SafeKeeper II push daggers. I always thought the SafeKeeper III push dagger would turn out to be insufficient in some manner as compared to it's two big brothers, but the moment I held the III in my hand I knew my former inhibitions concerning the smaller of the 3 SafeKeeper series push daggers had been completely unfounded. Size isn't everything! Lol. At least not were some knives are concerned. The SafeKeeper III has the same overall Cold Steel quality as all the SafeKeeper series blades, large and smaller models. From the kraton handle, which grips perfectly in my hand, to the sleek design and quality of the steel, the blade is well designed for it's purpose. This push dagger is the equal of it's two big brothers. I would have continued to do myself a disservice if I had not purchased this blade.
