CS12DBST: 12DBST Safe Maker I
Cold Steel
Cold Steel has been making push knives for a quarter century. In those 25 years, they have continually been refining their designs, discarding features that didn't perform as well as they would have liked and enhancing those that did. These blades and the wealth of experience that has gone into their manufacture have paid off handsomely for Cold Steel as they have generated quite a following among law enforcement and military personnel around the world. This is because they offer "big knife" cutting and piercing potential in a very compact, easily portable size, and, unlike a revolver or semi-automatic pistol, they never break, malfunction, or run out of ammunition.

Designed by Lynn C. Thompson, the Safe Make push knifes are, without doubt, the finest commercially made push knives in the world. The blade, shaft, and 'T' shaped tang are all drop forged from one piece of AUS-8 stainless steel. This process, though costly, eliminates any unwanted sharp edges or surfaces that would irritate the hand or fingers when the knife is clasped in a closed fist, and it produces a better knife since the subsequent vacuum heat treatment and sub zero quench renders the blades virtually unbreakable.

Well-made blades deserve equally well-made grips. A lot of time and energy went into the production of our 'T' shaped handles. Made of shock absorbing Kray-Ex they totally encapsulate the tang and part of the shaft so they can be comfortably and securely grasped in the fist with the blade jutting out between the fingers and used to deliver absolutely devastating punching and slashing blows.

Each Safe Maker includes an easily concealable and sturdy Secure-Ex boot/belt sheath and a steel bead chain lanyard so it can be worn as a neck knife.

Cold Steel 12DBST Safe Maker
The push dagger is probably the easiest knife to use for armatures ever invented. Cols Steels Safe Maker is an example that is perfect for bad breath distance self defense. Very little training is required to use it effectively and it is so easy to conceal. At 4.5 inches the blade length is near perfect and the blade its self comes razor sharp; its double edge is well designed and gives new meaning to the phrase " cuts both ways". Unfortunately, a lot of excellent knives come with a sheath that is sub standard and practically useless. NOT SO! with Cold Steels Secure-Ex sheath; it is very minimal in its design and keeps the blade secured no matter how it is carried until needed. It can be easily drawn with one hand from under the shirt when carried in the blade up position. The handle is non slip and offers cushion to the hand that can't be beat. Overall materials and finish is excellent. If your looking for a top quality push dagger at a reasonable price and very easy to carry and use, this is it.
