Cold Steel could do better
I really don't like to give bad reviews, but I am not happy with this knife at all. I knew that it was made of cheap 420 steel, but I bought it anyway. There is no edge on this whatsoever. I can run my thumb across the edge with considerable force and not even get a scratch. When I tried to cut a thin cord, the tip folded over as it passed! I'm not talking about paracord either. I was shorting the drawstring on venetian blinds. I understand that this is primarily a stabbing design, but in reality, the blade is too short to stop someone on meth or pcp. I haven't measured it, but I doubt it is over 3 in long.While the sheath holds the knife securely, the throat is so bulky that the entire package shows underneath my shirt. The sheath has a couple slots, but they are too small for a belt to pass through (unless you use baling twine as a belt).While this has not turned me off on Cold Steel, I don't think this knife is worth the price. Maybe ten bucks.
