Cold Steel Knives Spartan 4.5″ Lockback Blade
Cold Steel Knives comes out with another “MONSTER” folding knife. This new Spartan is amazing- a full 4.5″ blade, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. The blade is Kukri shaped and thick. When open, the handle is a real handle- it actually fits your hand in a grabbing position. The tail of the handle can also be used as an aggressive weapon. This knife joins the pantheon of super beefy folders from Cold Steel- along with the Super large Voyagers, The Vaquero Grande, the Extra Large Espada, the Rajah Series and probably some others that don’t come to mind. It is truly amazing

Boker’s New Limited Editions
One thing that Boker does well is to build their German, conventional style folding knives. These two are old time standards from Boker. The BO2020Y folding hunter is a very old style and this one is really attractive with a bright yellow handle. At $44.95, this is a great deal and only a limited number were made. We have them at: www.knifecenter.com
The blade steel is typical high carbon (non stainless) that a lot of folks really like because they feel it is easy to sharpen.
The BO2002GOLD is a really unusual model that will appeal to all the Boker collectors out there. The 200x series is a real steady seller but this one has an unusual color bone handle and a gold plated blade! The prices of these new offerings are really reasonable.

Cold Steel Large Espada V “Folding Sword”

Of course, when Cold Steel makes them, there is a certain quality of manufacturing that shows through. We have had large folders of a similar style made in Spain and these really do outshine them in many ways.
