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.

Good Customer Service and a good EDC
I wanted to use the knife before making a review, and the Mini Lawman that I ordered is up to my expectations. The picture that is on the website is different, but the one I ordered is the most up to date Lawman. The clip is at the wrong place compared to the picture, but the one I wanted was the new version anyways. I had even emailed and Live Chatted the website admins and had replies ASAP. I checked through other sources as well, via Youtube, and people I know, to check the authenticity of the Mini Lawman. The knife is a bit clunky but that is what you get for getting a strong reliable tri ad lock to make up for it. Blade is sharp right out the box. AUS steel is not the best, but it definitely is not the worst, but I got what I paid for. No Vertical or sideways play so far. Tested abuse a little bit on cutting wood, batoning, but mostly EDC. The handle is still extremely rigid. Some small facts about it are that when the knife is opened normally, it clicks with slightly more noise than the Mini Recon 1 or the Mini AK-47 by Cold Steel. Clip makes it so that the knife hangs out at the top a little when clipped to the pocket. Handle however, is small. Cold Steel does not make custom knives, or else I would want a Recon 1 handle with the blade length of 2.5 inches to comply with certain laws. I dislike how the handle of the Mini Lawman is too small.

False Advertising
I sent it back. The picture shows it with the new style pocket clip which was important to me & when it came it had the old style. I even called & spoke with a rather cranky customer service person who said it would have the new style clip. No good Knife Center! On line shopping has lots of options. I'll find another when I have time.
