CS30U: 30U Ultimate Hunter S35VN, Black

Cold Steel

A design collaboration between custom knifemaker Andrew Demko & Lynn C Thompson, the Ultimate Hunter represents the culmination of almost three years of design evolution. Exhaustively field tested on four continents - the Ultimate Hunter has proved its worth time and time again! Made from American S35VN stainless steel, the Ultimate Hunter is hand-ground to a razor edge that will last an amazingly long time. The heavily bead blasted, CNC machined G10 handles are comfortably smooth, while still giving a very secure, safe grip. Equipped with a super-strong Tri-Ad locking mechanism for extra safety, the Ultimate Hunter is a pure thoroughbred hunting/ outdoorsman's blade that also makes an excellent everyday carry knife - practical, functional and incredibly capable!

This is my first Cold Steel but not my last. Impressive build quality and, by far, the sharpest factory edge in knife history. I have the bandaids to prove it. Triad lock was way too stiff upon arrival and needed a little tweaking but the ergonomics and texture of the G10 handles are excellent; although, the pocket clip created an annoying hot spot for me so I removed it. Personally, a little large for an EDC but will be my go-to knife when I need something robust and indestructible on weekend adventures. I was looking for a heavy duty folder as a departure from my usual executive pocket jewelry. After watching a million reviews, including one that issued a certified gem status by the infamous Nick Shabazz, I settled on the Ultimate Hunter. Couldn’t be happier.

Stout & well made - a good value
This is a sturdy knife that’s well made for the money. No real frills but the Tri-Ad locks are legendary in strength & the G10 is well machined with a finish that offers a secure grip. The spine on my example is a bit sharp on the edges but certainly not dangerously so. It might be an intentional feature for striking a ferro rod & it would easily do that. The factory edge wasn’t bad for a production knife and it came out evenly on my KME which means the blade geometry is fine & symmetrical. Not exactly thin behind the edge but quite functional for most tasks you’d do with it. In hand feel while in use is very comfortable for my XL hands. Not sure I understand the purpose for the placement of the coarse jimping but it doesn’t cause any problem in use (nor does it seem to add function beyond a cool look to the knife design).The pocket clip on my sample had very little rise/clearance at the tip and was very tightly pinched against the G10 but a couple of minutes of fiddling in a small vise got it working just fine. All in all I feel as though I got a good workhorse of a knife in a good steel & heat treat at a fair price. No regrets.
