CS10AB: 10AB Counter Point 1, AUS-10A
Cold Steel
Cold Steel has spent years exploring high-end boot knives, and now they've applied that knowledge to a folding knife – the Cold Steel Counter Point. The Counter Point is available in three blade sizes - 3", 4" and 6". Their stiletto-inspired spear point blades have a distinctively pronounced false edge and a lustrous satin finish, combining to make a blade that not only looks great but delivers a show-stopping performance! Made from Japanese AUS-10A stainless steel, the Counter Point is highly corrosion and stain resistant and takes a very sharp and durable edge. The Counter Points handle is made from Griv-Ex and reinforced with heat treated aluminum liners, making it not only very strong, but comfortable and secure in almost any grip imaginable. For added strength and safety, Cold Steel equipped the Counter Point with their famous Tri-Ad locking mechanism, proven again and again to be incredibly strong and shock resistant.

Excellent Knife
I received my new Counter Point 1 in AUS 10 several days ago and I like it very much especially with the grippier textured handles. I have the older Counter Point 1 in AUS 8 with the smooth handles for several years but I prefer the newer model. Both are great knives, carries in the pocket well, great for self defense, and no sticking or hard to engage or disengage the triad lock. Comes sharp OTB and had no problems cutting boxes, zip ties, rope and other materials. Cutting edge stays sharper longer than AUS 8 and easy to sharpen. Hopefully Cold Steel will make the Counter Point models in G10 scales in the future and it will be perfect. Right now KC has the best price on this knife than any other knife vendor on the web so get yours now before it runs out. Thanks KC for a perfect knife, great price and fast shipping!

Cold Steel Counter Point, 4'' blade.
Upon arrival, opening the knife, OK. Closing the knife, not OK. I had to use a plier to get the lock back to give. Ended up, having to relieve the rear of the blade to get it to close using my finger, fingers on the back lock. Guarantee, know one tested my knife before it was shipped. The pocket clip is too stiff and not wide enough. The holes in the knifes handle allows the clip to get too great a grip. Wouldn't use the clip on anything other than new heavy jeans. I've had mine for about 2 years. Rarely carry it, too heavy. The knife sure is intimidating though!

Pleasant Surprise
This will be in my defense carry rotation. Not a working knife.Knife was VERY sharp and well-profiled. I may sharpen the swedge, but it'll do just fine against 2 legged animals as is.Grip is super positive with little chance of sliding forward during a stabbing motion.Lock is very proven
