CS12CS: 12CS Safe Maker II
Cold Steel
 
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 Make™ 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 Kray-Ex™ 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 knives are available in two sizes; each includes an easily concealable and sturdy Secure-Ex® boot/belt sheath. The smaller version includes a steel bead chain lanyard so it can be worn as a neck knife.

The Ultimate Push Dagger
This is an amazing push dagger- the best I've ever held. Like Goldilocks with the third bear's stuff, everything is juuuuuuuuuust right! Size, shape, weight, comfort in wearing and use, and even the amount of force needed to remove it from the sheath. I bought this knife for my wife and the Safe Maker 1 for me, but I'm going to order one of these for myself too. Great knife and excellent service. No problems at all with international shipment.

Cold Steel Safe Maker II Review
The Safe Maker II will be used for personal self-defense. It is a high quality, well designed and precision made weapon. It will not pinch the fingers: There are no sharp curves or angles on the handle so it is very comfortable as they stated.The back of the blade is not flat but slightly concave. The sheath is a masterpiece of design: It can be worn around the neck, clipped on your belt or laced on the boots or other equipment. I may clip it on my bike when training. The clip can actually be taken off if not needed. I do believe this is a new feature. The locking mechanism is pretty tight so I will carefully run an emery file over the 2 pawls until deployment is easier. I selected this knife because it is ambi....while most neck knives are not. When needed in an emergency, there is no time to fiddle with a single edged knife with oddly shaped handles. The knife from the box, shaved 2" of forearm hair without complaint. The KC regular prices are better than CS's "special prices" so buy from KC.
