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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
The Safe Maker II Push dagger 3-1/4" Blade is a great product
the knife will be used for self defense only Also as the blade is so sharp and broad I can cut the throat of any deer that is unfortunate enough to be hit by a car and survive. Rather then see a wounded animal struggle I can quick end the suffering . the blade handle and shaft are very comfortable. The item description cased me to expect the blade would be beveled on both sides. Otherwise a great tool knife.

Sturdy Knife
I use this knife for everything. I liked it so much I bought one for all the women in my family for self defense. My wife hangs it around her neck when she does crafts. Seriously sturdy blade. Super comfortable handle. The blade finish is bright and mirror like. The sheath requires a good wide quality belt to work satisfactorily with it. I now own one in every size and am never without it. I even slice my fruit at work with it.
