CS12CT: 12CT Safe Keeper III
Cold Steel
The Safe Keeper series "push knives" have the cutting and piercing potential of a larger knife, but are small enough so that they can be easily attached to tactical web gear, tucked in a waistband or boot top, or even strapped to a wrist or ankle. The Safe Keeper III offers outstanding versatility, especially as a boot knife. Its light weight and overall length of five inches make it the perfect combination of small size and big performance. The single edged design of the Safe Keeper III means you can safely "choke up" on the blade for extra fine work, while the false edge provides superior point strength. With only one sharp edge, the Safe Keeper III can also easily double as a rescue knife.

Good blade, really sharp out of the box. Sheath holds the blade well, no rattle.

Great Little Push Dagger
I've owned the two larger iterations of this knife, and both were great, but ultimately useless, knives in my collection, since I can't carry them legally in my state. I decided to buy this one, since being single edged makes it legal to carry, and it's being discontinued. I regret not buying one sooner. The fit and finish is just as good as the larger versions. The compact size makes it easy to carry. The only complaint is the Secure-X sheath; Cold Steel is incapable of making a decent sheath, it seems.

Push Dagger
I bought the knife because I am a knife person. I thought it was unique but I really don't know how useful it would be in a fighting situation. I spent two years in southeast asia during the Vietnam era and have seen and done alot of unimaginable things. This knife is cute but it would not have been my first choice to carry with me during my time there. not knocking the knife itself just the comfort factor for slashing and cutting in a combat or fighting situation.
