Description
CS39LSF: 39LSF Leatherneck-SF
Cold Steel
 
The word 'Leatherneck' has become synonymous with the famous U.S. Marines since 1776 when Congress compelled all Marines to wear a thick, high leather collar (known in the vernacular of the day as a "stock"). This collar served two purposes; first, it helped protect one's neck from sword and cutlass blows, and second, it forced a Marine to keep his head up straight, exhibiting the military posture that was fashionable at the time.

Today, after two centuries of personal sacrifice on and off the battlefield, our Leathernecks enjoy the love, respect, and admiration of every true American and it is to them we dedicate this series of battle ready knives.

The series has two distinct blade styles. Both are made from German 4116 Stainless steel and finished with a rich Tuff-Ex&trage; non reflective coating:

The Leatherneck-SF (for Semper-Fi) has a saber ground clip point blade. It's hollow ground and honed by hand to a startling razor sharpness.

The Leatherneck-Tanto features a Cold Steel style Tanto blade. It's incredibly sharp blade is 7" long and hollow ground by hand.

To keep the fingers from sliding forward onto their keen edge, the Leathernecks come with a substantial guard. It's made of thick steel with double quillons that are turned slightly forward and provide excellent protection for your hand (especially in close combat) while offering minimal interference in the use of these knives when performing utility tasks.

The handles are made of deeply checkered Kraton® that totally encloses the knives' extra wide full tang. They offer unsurpassed gripping power through their palm hugging oval cross section and unique finger trough. They're capped with a thick, machined steel butt cap (not cheap casting like others) so they can also deliver frightful blows with the butt or double in an emergency as a hammer.

To carry the Leatherneck knives safely and conveniently in all environments, they come with a sturdy Secure-Ex sheath complete with fully detachable and ambidextrous belt loop.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Blade Material, None
Decent mid size knife. Nothing special.
I use mine when i go fishing,and use it as a bait knife,and for SD..The 4116 has excellent rust resistance,and takes a very sharp edge.The downside is that it loses that edge fast.But for what I use it for,it's ok.The handle would have been better if CS hadn't put their name on it,and instead just made it a complete oval shape.The handle is still ok,but has indentations because of the name put on it.The sheath is the typical Secure-Ex sheath,it's fine.The biggest problem i see with this knife is that for just a little more,one can get a substantially BETTER grade of steel,and Made in USA..Do NOT believe what CS says when they say 4116 is "vastly superior" to the 420 & 440 series..In NO way shape or form,can it outperform American 440c IF BOTH have the EXACT same blade geometry,and proper HT's..440c will eat it up..Buck's 420Hc with the Paul Bos HT,and the Cryo treat,also has Better edge holding than 4116..IMO,what CS is referring to is all those cheap flea-market,and gas station folders,that have piss poor HT's,or no HT at all.Notice how CS words their statement:CS DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY say 4116 outperforms 440c,only that it is better than 420&440"series",there's lots of different series of those steels.....CS leads the consumer on so that the consumer"THINKS" that's what they mean..It's a VERY mis-leading statement..Take their claims about their knives with a grain of salt..Not a bad knife per se,but LOTS of better choices,for as little as $25 more..
