CS43XL: 43XL Best Pal Plain Edge
Cold Steel
Cold Steel has been singing the praises of high quality push knives for over 20 years.

A well-made push knife is a surprisingly versatile and useful everyday utility tool. Its secure grip allows the user to open their hand while still having full control over the knife. Many of our staff uses them regularly - opening boxes, pausing to sign for deliveries or type on computers or tablets – all without the knife ever leaving their hand!

Light enough to be worn as a neck knife or hung from a key ring or a purse, but still packing enough cutting power to handle tasks that would challenge even some of our competitor's larger knives, the Best Pal also makes a formidable last resort self defense tool.

The expertly designed handle offers a secure and comfortable grip, padding the fingers when making big slashes and cuts. This awesome knife is complemented by our sturdy Secure-Ex™ sheath and a black bead lanyard chain.

my new e.d.c. knife
This turned out to be a great buy, I feel its the perfect size and weight for a neck knife. I own a few different neck knives and this cold steel best pal is the only one a carry.

very satisfying first purchase at
Thanks to item specifics online this was exactly as expected. Speedy delivery (inspite of the distance). As a sort of 'test'order this is an incentive for ordering every future US-purchase at

Great little knife!
I use this product for work and as a EDC knife. I use it mainly to cut zip ties and open boxes and such but if need be this little push dagger is a pretty formidable close defense weapon. It can cut clean through and penetrate just about anything with enough force behind it. Came extremely sharp and has maintained its edge well. Only drawback is the sheath. Wearing it around your neck is silly so I bought a pocket clip and gorilla glued it to the back for pocket carry. Also, sheath is a little loose. Be careful not to snag it on anything as it can easily come loose and fall out if not careful. Overall, I love it!
