Cold Steel
 
Cold Steel is proud to introduce the American Lawman - named in honor of, and expressly designed to serve, our brothers and sisters in Law Enforcement. Available in two sizes, these rugged knives are designed to perform in the most extreme environments while still remaining comfortable to use and easy to carry. Their drop point blades are big and sharp enough for almost any task while remaining "Civilian Friendly" in appearance. Made from high-performance American S35VN stainless steel and hollow ground to a thin, hand-polished edge, each blade is also DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coated for added endurance and corrosion resistance. The Lawman's handles are also designed to be as versatile and user-friendly as possible. Made from G10, they are contoured for grip security in even the worst conditions. A lock failure on your folder is incredibly dangerous - but if the lock fails on a police officer's knife in the line of duty, it could be disastrous! That's why Cold Steel has equipped each American Lawman with their Tri-Ad locking mechanism. Designed to withstand terrific impact forces and shock, it has passed some of the most gruesome torture testing in the industry.

Not Bad At All
I mostly use the knife while doing housework, or when working in the yard. Recently I've actually been cutting a fair amount of nylon rope with it and it seems to do the job just fine. It feels pretty good in the hand, and it's certainly feels secure. No issues with the lock or the blade shape. The edge retention is OK, about where you'd expect for s35vn. One issue I do have with it is that the pocket clip isn't very good. I actually just took the clip off and it actually carries better in the pocket that way. In all, it's a good work knife and has a lot of value for the price.

Cons: None
Another great classic from cold steel
I have a couple dozen CS folders in XHP and S35vn, though I do prefer XHP, their use of s35vn has shown to be a good working steel for me. Personally find the many negatives against s35vn to be silly. Because I prefer xhp and have multiples of each model I own I do use the s35vn versions and they hold a very good edge and better then most who use s35vn(cough ZT) folks ignore the negatives, it is a good premium steel. Now the g10 on this model is great, good texture but not the extremely rough texture used on the recon models. Great for those who like larger in hand feel with their knives. Like most triad lock CS they need a breaking period for the lock, and eventually the lock stick will subside (if it does have lock stick) yes the lock tension is heavy, part of why the lock is as secure as it is, with that said I do "soften or lighten" some of my CS lock tension with zero issues. Great heavy use knife.

American Lawman
Despite being a popular knife I didn't buy this one till now because of the steel change. Love CTP-XHP and have had OK at best experience with S35VN. I can say that my feeling on the steel choice hasn't not changed after owning this knife. Knife came hair popping sharp and ergos seemed good, but thinner then other cold steel knives I own. This is where things after using it for long periods of time created hot spots in the grip at least for me. The plus is it's a good size for EDC unlike other cold steel blades I own, the lock didn't stick right off the bat and need to be worn in like other, but out side of that was not very happy with this selection, granted cheaper then other options, but would rather pay more if it is better then this.
