CS20NQL: 20NQL Medium Luzon
Cold Steel
Lynn C. Thompson's love of the Filipino Martial Arts inspired him to develop the Luzon Folders. Drawing inspiration from several balisongs in his collection, but functioning as a flipper, the Luzons are a politically correct alternative for those who are unable to legally own balisongs. The Luzon's blades are comprised of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, and expertly hardened to 57-58 Rockwell and feature sharp, strong, points with just enough belly to make them equally useful for cutting and slashing. You'll be dreaming of the Philippines once you experience the Luzon’s bamboo-inspired handles, featuring concave segments that offer countless comfortable grip options. Made of glass-filled nylon (GFN), the Luzon's handles are impervious to the elements, and are unlike any handle Cold Steel has ever made before.

Handsome, budget-friendly, and a breeze to flip open, the Luzons are a formidable choice for those going in harm's way. Offering incomparable levels of safety, they're equipped with a sturdy leaf-spring lock and a (patent-pending) secondary safety mechanism that, when it's engaged is extremely resistant to shock and impact. It will keep your fingers safe even under the worst conditions. Available in two sizes, both feature a lanyard hole and right-hand GFN pocket clip.

like the design
just got mine. I flipped it open and checked the blade. uneven grind, and rather dull. took a while to sharpen it to shave hair. they must have a high RC on that steel. the next thing I noticed is I could not close the knife. Apparently, if you put some oomph in trying to flip it open, the spring lock gets pushed in real tight. When I finally disengaged it, I practiced with different degrees of force on the flipper. If you do it right, it disengages fine.I then noticed this rattling sound. I played with the knife a while before I realized that safety latch was making the noise. on the bright side, I do like the grip. fits my hand really well. The blade shape is nice, but I live in one of those restrictive states where you cant have a blade over 3in, and in some jurisdictions, the knife cant have a lock. Weird, we can open carry guns so why worry about that stuff, and automatics (knives) are allowed. Anyway, I was torn between 3 and 4 stars but decided on 3 because CS quality control could have been better.

Very nice flipper
5 star based on low price. This cuts well the blade is a little thinner than I'm used to seeing from Cold Steel but that's a good thing in this design. In terms of sheer quality, Voyager then Pro-Lite then Luzon. Snaps open like it's an assisted opener. Thumb studs aren't thumb studs they contact the frame in lieu of a pin behind the tang (therefore don't let them loosen up, and don't complain they are located in a poor position if they were really thumb studs and not blade stops). The plastic clip works well - secure but gentle on clothing and it fits cosmetically with the rest of the handle. The clip is non reversible and don't unscrew it, it won't screw back together to original levels of quality. The liner lock seems thinner than most hence the thumb safety is recommended and don't baton this one. No play or wiggle, when closed the safety slider can rattle This is an inexpensive highly functional knife made to be carried often and used infrequently due to the compromises in build quality to hit this price point - it's not a Rajah or Spartan. The design is first class, the build quality is Buck.

Good EDC!
Got this in the mail 3 days ago. Fast shipping from KnifeCenter by the way! I love the way the knife looks. Very sleek. Deployment is smooth and easy. Lockup is good. The knife also has a slide lock which probably wont get much use, but it is there if you feel you need it.The 4 inch blade has a great look...The handle has a great feel with plenty of room even for people with large hands. The only complaint i have is that mine came without the normal sharpness I expect from a Cold Steel. I took care of that without much trouble. It is lightweight and carries very easy...All in all, a very good knife!
