For 2015 Cold Steel has switched from our classic Japanese AUS8A steel to American CTS XHP steel on many of our folders. We have also upgraded our black blade coatings from Tuff-Ex to DLC (Diamond Like Coating).

Many of our fans have asked how this will affect performance, so, in true Cold Steel fashion we got rope, knives and a camera, and we put it to the test! How many shearing “push” cuts will these knives make? Watch this video to find out!
