CS12BS: Safe Maker I
Cold Steel

Cold Steel describes this item as follows:

Cold Steel has been making push knifes for a quarter century. In those twenty five years we have continually been refining our designs, discarding features that didn’t perform as well as we would have liked and enhancing those that did. These blades, and the wealth of experience that has gone into their manufacture, have paid off handsomely for Cold Steel as they have generated quite a following among law enforcement and military personnel around the world. This is because they offer “big knife” cutting and piercing potential in a very compact, easily portable size, and, unlike a revolver or semi automatic pistol, they never break, malfunction, or run out of ammunition.

Designed by Lynn C. Thompson, our Safe Maker push knifes are, without doubt, the finest commercially made push knives in the world. The blade, shaft, and ’T’ shaped tang are all drop forged from one piece of AUS 8A Stainless Steel. This process, though costly, eliminates any unwanted sharp edges or surfaces that would irritate the hand or fingers when the knife is clasped in a closed fist, and it produces a better knife, since the subsequent vacuum heat treatment and sub zero quench, renders the blades virtually unbreakable.

Well made blades deserve equally well-made grips. A lot of time and energy went into the production of our ‘T’ shaped handles. Made of shock absorbing Kraton they totally encapsulate the tang and part of the shaft so they can be comfortably and securely grasped in the fist with the blade jutting out between the fingers and used to deliver absolutely devastating punching and slashing blows.

The Safe Maker includes an easily concealable and sturdy Secure-Ex boot/belt sheath.

  • Blade: 4 1/2"
  • Overall: 6 3/8"
  • Weight: 3.7 oz.
  • Thick: 5mm
  • AUS 8A Stainless steel blade with Kraton handle
  • Secure-Ex boot/belt sheath

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Just what i needed, if the case actually worked....
Man i really like this dagger, only problem with it is the kydex sheath, im probaly going to get a custom sheath for it. The sheath that it comes with is nice it just doesnt stay on your belt when you go to deploy the knife, not good.

Very good fighting knife
Just got one of these from KC after wanting one for quite awhile,quality is top notch and the handle is very comfortable. Only had it twenty four hours but I've noticed several good points about a push dagger,one being it's easy to carry IWB (inside the waist band) thanks to the short handle and you can have it in your off hand and still use a pistol for self-defense it gives you options you don't have with a regular folder or fixed blade. About the only downside,somewhat anyways,is the scabbard;it's not cheap and honestly holds the knife very well but it also feels like zytel so it may not hold up too well and I've had similar ones that broke things like the belt clip plus it sometimes holds the knife TOO well,I've pulled the whole caboose out and not just the blade. Not a deal breaker just have to get a good kydex sheath for it. I'd recommend one if you want a good fighting knife.
