CS43XLS: 43XLS Best Pal 50/50 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.

Our first small-scale double-edged push knife, the Best Pal has one serrated edge for tough cutting chores and one plain edge for fine work.

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.

Cold Steel Push Knife
Excellent knife! Blade is extremely sharp and the handle has a great nylon grip. It is lightweight & concealable and the secure sheath locks the knife in perfectly. The only down side to the knife is the handle could be wider but that is available in a larger model

"Urban's Elder Brother"
I use intensively Cold Steel's "Urban Pal" and I am very pleased with everything it brings to my everyday life. However, I needed something bigger for self-defense purposes. "Best Pal" brings bigger size into play and basically resolves the "size issue". Pros: - bigger then Urban Pal, thus more effective for self-defense, but w/o risk to injure somebody severely as bigger Cold Steel daggers - nice practical sheath, blade does not fall from it, insert the dagger into it until a "click" is heard - stiffening rib on the front side to add some resistance, which represents improvement since Urban & Mini Pals do not have it - serrated edge to cut through clothes, blade & spear point are sharp out of the box - shock-absorbing Kray-Ex handle (you will notice difference, if you try to punch with metal skeleton type of handle, it injures your hand) - can be easily concealed (pretty obvious) - price is very acceptable in comparison with competitors Cons: - blade was covered in gun oil (very strange, but not a big issue really) - I would be happier to see a vertical belt clip with horizontal scabbard, rather than a neck chain. It is a push dagger and not a neck knife. I cannot imagine why would you want to wear it on your neck. You will never be able to draw it in time, unless you serve in military and do not care whether somebody see the knife on your neck on top of your clothes or not. But this is not the reason to remove any stars from dagger's rating. Great buy, happy with it!
