Description
CS58ALM: Mini American Lawman
Cold Steel

Being a police officer, deputy sheriff or state trooper is often a thankless job performed under frequently dangerous and trying circumstances. long shifts that change from days, to swing, to graveyard and back again take their toll; not to mention the mediocre pay and missed holidays and celebrations with family and friends. yet our nation's law enforcement officers continue to tirelessly serve their fellow citizens and provide the "thin blue line" that holds evil at bay and allows us to live in peace and prosperity.

Now cold steel is pleased to give these real American heroes a knife named in their honor and expressly designed to serve them "The American Lawman. built like a proverbial tank, it's comfortable in the most extreme environments and will shrug off the harshest abuse like water off a duck's back. this is one super tough knife that can be relied on, even in life or death situations.

The drop point blade is "civilian friendly" in appearance yet big, wide and most importantly, pointed enough for any cutting or piercing task. made from Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel and hollow ground to a thin, hand-polished edge, it's as sharp as a serpent's tooth and will easily sever the toughest, most fibrous materials. to further protect it from rust and the constant exposure to inclement weather, it comes with a black, non-reflective Teflon finish.

Since law enforcement officers never really know what is in store for them from one shift to the next, we thought it was very important to make the American Lawman's handle as versatile and user friendly as possible. supplied with dual pocket clips and twin thumb studs, it's completely ambidextrous and can be opened one-handed in a flash. plus, due to its well thought out finger grooves, it's equally comfortable and effective in either a forward or reverse grip and can be even "choked up on" for tasks requiring extra fine edge or point control.

Keeping a firm grip on their knife when their hands are cold, wet, tired or oily is also a major priority for law enforcement officers. That's why we have equipped these knives with aggressively textured G-10 handle scales. They're lightweight, enormously strong, and most importantly offer terrific traction to the hand so the skin and flesh of the fingers will stick to them like glue.

Having the lock break on your folder is serious and may result in badly cut fingers. but if the lock fails on a police officer's knife, it could be a genuine disaster and result in loss of life or limb. that's why we have provided each American Lawman with our new tri-ad locking mechanism. designed to withstand terrific impact forces and weight loads transferred to it's mechanism from the edge, point and even back of the blade, it has passed with flying colors and never failed even once despite being subjected to the most gruesome torture testing scenarios we could devise.

Cold Steel Mini Lawman
I did not buy this knife from here, I was able to find a good price from an European distributor and did not know this page here yet. There are many things I love about that knife. It came with a good sharpness - edge holding is OK. It is very easy to keep the blade shaving sharp. I really trust the Tri-Ad-Lock, it feels so much safer than for example the Spyderco Millies Liner Lock. BUT For it's size it is kinda heavy. I think that's OK because it is very sturdy. The coating goes off easily - I don't care about that. The lockup is sometimes an issue - it can be really hard to unlock and close with one hand, especially after using the blade. The lock seems to get tighter when force is applied to the blade. Sometimes I have a slight blade movement to the sides when it is opened. When it is closed, I have it all the time. This is because I stabbed some wood for many, many times when I was drunk. If I close and reopen it the movement is gone but it may come back. Has to do with the tightness of the lockup (dont know how to describe exactly) What I really dislike is that I cannot just wrist flick open it. I can do that with any of my knives giving the blade a little push and then - with the right movement - flick it open. The blade of the Mini Lawman is just too light to do that. It is a really great little knife. It is in my EDC rotation. Worth every penny. Not for big hands. I have small to medium hands and only got 4 fingers on it.

Great EDC pocket knife.
Although I didn't buy mine from here. Like others I still check out the reviews here as they help me to decide on a knife purchase. With that said, the mini lawman is great edc pocket knife. Mine came out of the small box razor sharp, a major plus. Love the grippy G10 handle material. When gripping the knife the handle fits my fingers and hand nicely, it feels really good. A great locking system. Absolutely no wiggle/movement to the blade when opened. Very tight, solid and sturdy. Although its not entirely a complaint... that is the pocket clip. Really ridiculously super tight clip. The kinda clip that will damage the clothing its attached, clipped to. Like I said, its not a biggie because you can pry the clip out a little bit at a time,and make adjustments to it until your happy. Remember, don't over do it, just a little bit at a time. Great quality knife that will last a very long time. Very happy with this knife. I recommend it to any one looking for a very good reliable edc knife. Yes, you can use it to gut a deer with.
