CS20KL: 20KL Eland
Cold Steel
More than 3 million ring lock folding knives are sold in the African Continent every year. These highly functional knives are owned and carried by people from every walk of life and are the go-to every day tool for almost every conceivable task. These versatile knives have stood the test of time, they have been in-use continuously for centuries and with good reason - they work!

Cold Steel's President Lynn C Thompson has long admired these knives and has seen them put to great use during his many visits to Africa since the 1980s. Now, they are proud to offer their interpretations of these enduring ring lock folders that they have called the Kudu and the Eland, and we are going to go "out on a limb" and state - these are the best folding knives in their price range in the world!

Both the Kudu and the Eland feature highly rust resistant and beautifully mirror polished stainless steel blades that are expertly heat treated to offer an excellent balance between edge holding and ease of re-sharpening. Their glass reinforced Zy-Ex handles are not only attractive (with a wood grain texture and polished silver embellishments) but they are incredibly strong and durable.

Amazingly lightweight, versatile and functional, and affordable on almost any budget – the Eland and the Kudu represent a new standard in low cost, high performance folders. There is simply no excuse not to buy one today!

Cons: None
Lite, Lengthy Locker
I wanted this knife because, in the past, I purchased a set from Africa and wanted to see what, if any, the Cold Steel blade was better then the originals I had in my collection. I am thoroughly pleased with this knife because of the quality and workmanship it delivered. Although it is a truly inexpensive knife, it arrived razor sharp ready to cut and with instructions on how to open and close the knife without losing a finger. The pin lock really does it's job. In normal use I don't think you would ever encounter a problem. On the other hand I guess if you wanted to you could find that nothing is foolproof, because as you know, fools are so ingenious. The handle allows for a comfortable grip under most circumstances. The finish is very nice and as I said earlier, the blade is very sharp. I've used it as an E.D.C and it fills the bill for normal activities. Haven't had to fight off any bears yet but I'm sure it would hold it's own.
