CS62KGM: Rajah III
Cold Steel

The Kukri’s best attributes and enormous potential as a weapon and a tool have been well documented in our DVD’s. We’ve made different variations of the Kukri over the years, some with longer blades, and some with shorter, but never, until now, have we had a version you could carry in your pocket as a folder.

The Rajah folders, designed by Andrew Demko, are big enough to approximate the feel and heft a fixed blade Kukri. Their broad, downward curved blades exhibit the best of a Kukri’s characteristics. First, their unique shape presents their thin, hollow ground edges at just the right angle so they naturally bite deep instead of bouncing or skidding off. And secondly their points are thick, wide and sharp enough to pierce even the toughest targets.

The handle has some of the contours of fixed blade Kukri’s with the addition of strategically placed curves and finger grooves. These features will facilitate 3 grip styles. One - very close to the cutting edge where you can really choke up on the handle for fine or delicate work. Two – by the middle for ordinary chores. And three – near the end or butt where you will have the most leverage and weight forward balance for heavy cutting or chopping and where you will receive maximum reach advantage.

The only suitable lock that can sustain the incredible impact forces generated by chopping strokes with a Rajah folder is our TRI-AD lock. Designed specifically to take pressure off the smaller, more fragile interlocking surfaces of a rocker lock and transfer them to a uniquely positioned stop pin that will absorb and distribute these forces through the handle frame.

Carry the Rajah as you would any folder, using the clip to attach it to any reasonably sized pocket or clip it in your waistband. In an emergency all you have to do is grab it and open it in the conventional manner or snag its unique thumb plate on the edge of a pocket and snap it open.

Rajah I
The Rajah I is truly a custom quality knife. Its handle frame and integral bolsters are CNC machined from a 7075 Aluminum billet to secure the black G-10 handle scales. And it’s built tough enough to endure countless hours of hard, brutal work.

Rajah II
The Rajah II is a more economical version of the Rajah I (at one third the price). It has a Grivory injection molded handle and steel liners for added strength.

Rajah III:
The Rajah III is basically a scaled down, more pocket friendly, version of its big brother. Designed by Andrew Demko, it shares almost all the major features of the Rajah II including an AUS 8A stainless blade, Tri-Ad™ lock, thumb plate opener, ambidextrous pocket clips, and a Grivory handle with steel liners for extra strength and rigidity.

The Rajah III’s handle offers a number of grip options due to its carefully sculptured shape and cross section and is particularly well suited to the reverse grip thanks to a unique thumb shelf built into the butt.

I love this knife it is very sharp and the lock is rock solid. It is completely ambidextrous and open faster than a switch blade. I have more knifes than anyone needs but this one has the best grip and very well designed it even feels great in a false grip. The only thing that people may not like is that it is a little wide when closed but I still carry it everyday.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Material
Great fighting knife
This knife comes incredibly sharp straight out of the box. Great feel in hand and easy deployment from pocket after 2 or 3 times practicing it. I carry it as a fighting knife on me where ever I go. My only complaint is I wore it one very hot day while being very active. It was pressed hard against my leg in my pocket and was covered in my sweat all day. By night fall it has surface rust on it. The blade doesn’t seem to be coated with anything. I was able to get the rust off of it and put a small layer of oil over the blade in hopes of preventing that from happening again. It’s worth note, that I had another knife in my other pocket the whole time that did NOT rust. Otherwise, it is a great knife.
