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.

Pros: Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Great for everyday carry
You can't beat this knife for the price and for everyday carry. I wear it when I jog and feel safer for having it on me. In the winter I wear it between my shirt and my sweater and it is unobtrusive. It is easy to deploy; grab it with one hand while you hold the sheath against your chest with the other hand. I also like that one side of the blade is serrated.

Cons: None
Seems to be a great knife. I ordered this as a gift after looking at many reviews and comparisons of similar push knives. Out of the box, it's extremely sharp, as expected from Cold Steel. The serrations on one half are crisp, clean and well done. The Kray-Ex handle really does have a great feel to it and feel very secure when holding it. It comes with a bead chain to be worn around the neck or attached to something. The sheath has incredible retention. Not to much, but more than enough to feel safe and not worry about it coming out accidentally. The only downside is it's still a little large for neck carry. If you are actually looking to wear around the neck, I would personally go with the Urban Pal or Mini Pal. I will be ordering one of each soon. The Urban for myself and the Mini for my wife's keychain or purse. A quick word about Knife Center. As I said, I did a fair amount of research before ordering. I read Knife Center reviews, and as most places, there were a few unfavourable reviews. But good for the most part. I decided to give them a chance and SO glad I did. I ordered this on a Friday just before noon. I received a confirmation email immediately that the order was being processed. At about 4:30 that same afternoon, I got another email letting me know my order had shipped, along with the tracking info. I showed up in the mail that following Monday! Best price and turn around like that? Fantastic!
