CS36M: 36M Drop Forged Hunter
Cold Steel
While on a research trip in Argentina, Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson had the pleasure of using a solid steel hunting knife by French knifemaker Michel Achez.

He was incredibly impressed by Monsieur Achez's knife, which was both simple in design and astonishingly functional.

Inspired by Michel's work (and with his blessing), Lynn began exploring how to bring this classic hunter to a larger audience.

The Drop Forged Hunter is expertly heat treated and drop forged from 52100 High Carbon steel with a Rockwell Hardness of 58-59 for superior toughness. Its continuously curved, super-wide blade is both sharp and strong, designed to put in great work in even the most demanding conditions.

With no handle to break or no superfluous parts to rot, crack or get damaged in the field, the Drop Forged Hunter is a no-nonsense hard-working outdoor/hunting knife and survival tool.

Its ergonomic handle, with its integral finger guard deep comfortable trough and lanyard hole offers a very secure and comfortable grip even when wearing thick, heavy workman's gloves.

Supplied with a thick, traditional leather sheath, the Drop Forged Hunter is sure to be appreciated and valued by real hunters who will marvel at its performance and value for the money.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Materials, Finish
I was really excited to get the knife and shipping from was prompt and very easy. I really wanted to like this knife, and I was really excited about the prospect of using it this fall while hunting. Unfortunately, after taking the knife out of the sheath maybe 10 times, I'm already seeing where the finish is chipping off of the blade edge and wearing off of where the corners of the guard contacts the sheath. I've literally only used it to slice some brisket taken off the grill and I'm really not pleased that the finish is already wearing badly. I do like the shape, weight and design of the knife, as well as the sheath, I just can't see how the finish is going to hold up to any sort of use.

Pros: Blade Material, Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Very cool and indestructible
Bought on a sale and glad I did -- it's an excellent knife with a hand filling shape. Going in my hit and run bag. Will buy "Survivalist" 8" blade version coming out in 17. May try to add a paracord grip, but certainly functional and substantial as is. Good heft and design. No wonder Cold Steel is expanding the line. Leather sheath, would have preferred kydex.

Indestructible Life Saver
How cool is a one piece all purpose well made knife with nothing to loosen, break, fall off, get lost or wear out! This classic blade style is so versatile,it is rapidly becoming my favorite carry blade for woods work, hunting, fishing & camping. The steel & tempering provides excellent edge holding & ease of sharpening too. I would like to own multiples, but I will never wear out or break this one!
