The Cold Steel 1917 Frontier Bowie may not be the prettiest piece in the collection but it will be one of the hardest working, that’s for sure. It’s a 1/4″ thick piece of nicely tempered 1055 carbon steel so you know it will stand up to any kind of use. The handle is beautiful rosewood and you’re prevented from sliding forward onto the 12-1/4″ blade by an over-sized “S” guard which can also be used as a place to rest your thumb during fine cutting tasks. The sheath is an excellent, quality design made of leather and it provides very adequate retention on the knife. This is a great value for such a ferocious cutter, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
Cold Steel Code4 Heavy Duty Folding Pocket Knives
Cold Steel Knives create the best and most reasonably priced knives for various applications. No one does a better job of it. They wanted to create an easy-to-carry heavy duty folding pocket knife for law enforcement and military that wouldn’t break the bank. They have the production done in great factories and they use great materials and they create the absolute best designs. Like I said- nobody does it better! The Code4 series are flatter than the plastic handle models like the Voyagers or the G10 handle folding knives like the RECON series. They are super strong and feature a good stainless blade. We applaud Cold Steel for really doing it right! You can see the entire series which is now all available, at www.knifecenter.com

CHAOS Combat Knives from Cold Steel
These new Chaos models from Cold Steel Knives feel like the ultimate combat knives. Especially the double edged dagger, these are just awesome fighting tools. The handle is solid and threatening with a steel knuckle guard and a solid skull crusher on the rear end. With that and the very solid grip and long blade, this could be the most effective fighting knife we have seen.
There are few outdoor activities you can practice within the comfort of your own home or office. When we discovered the satisfaction of hitting a 1′ target across the office with a small dart shot from a blowgun, it changed the office atmosphere altogether. Stress levels have dropped significantly, and employees treat each other with greater respect now. The blowguns from Cold Steel are surprisingly accurate, even with little training.
The blow guns are available in 4 or 5 foot lengths, with an optional 2 foot extension. We have found that additional length adds to the range and accuracy. A quiver attached to the blowgun keeps track of a dozen darts. There are several variations of darts for those who go beyond target practice. Happy shooting from www.knifecenter.com!
Just in at the KnifeCenter is the really cool, high-value Survival Edge from Cold Steel. It’s a light duty bushcrafting design excellent for any utility task performed around the camp site. If you’re familiar with Mora of Sweden Knives, the Survival Edge is a very similar design with many more capabilities. The Secure-Ex sheath clips easily onto your belt and comes attached with a Ferrocerium fire steel to match the handle color. The 5″ mirror polished blade is made from German 4116 Stainless Steel which, according to Cold Steel, performs better than 420 and 440 series steels while providing improved corrosion resistance. What sets the Survival Edge apart is the extremely rigid, hollow handle design. With an internal length of three inches and diameter of one inch, there’s ample storage space for any small fishing, safety, or survival items. With a reasonably ergonomic handle, dual finger guard, and rubber O-rings for a secure grip, the Survival Edge is one useful tool and can be found at www.knifecenter.com.
Cold Steel is one of the most popular knife brands in the industry today and the Recon 1 is a main stay in their line. New for 2012, the Recon series adds two new sizes which are here for good and much more easily carried than the original 4-inch models. The Mini Recon’s are the perfect EDC size for most people packing a 3″ blade and 4-1/8″ highly textured G10 handle. The Micro Recon series is more of a keychain knife with a 2″ blade, 2-3/4″ closed length and an included keyring. Ergonomics are definitely a strong point for the Recons as all three sizes meld into your hand perfectly. All knives are or will soon be available in Tanto, Spear Point or Clip Point blade configurations except the Micro, which will only be Tanto and Spear Point.
