CS21TTXLS: 21TTXLS Talwar - Serrated Edge 5-1/2"
Cold Steel
During the 1800's the British Empire was hell bent on gobbling up as much of the Indian sub-continent as they could, seizing dominion with massive fire power and the point of the bayonet.

But when the British attempted to subdue the Sikhs and other martial clans they received a very rude awakening!

Suddenly soldiers and cavalrymen alike began literally losing their heads – not to mention their arms and legs- to a fearful Indo-Persian sword called the Talwar!

With it's razor sharp broad, curved blade it stopped the British cold in many battles and inflicted unheard of losses and the most ghastly wounds imaginable.

Now, almost two hundred years later Cold Steel has harnessed the fearsome cutting power of one of the world's most renowned swords in a tactical folder that we believe is truly worthy of the name Talwar.

Designed by celebrated custom knife-maker Andrew Demko and Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson, the largest of our diverse new Talwar series boasts the widest blade available (measuring a full 2" wide!). Flat ground, with a continuously curved cutting edge from choil to upswept point it offers cutting and piercing power hitherto unavailable in a folding knife.

To compliment the Talwar's razor edge and lethal point we developed a truly exceptional handle.

Made from American G-10, it's textured and contoured pistol grip handle features strategically placed finger grooves for comfort and safety, and to further protect your precious fingers from this formidable blade, we have equipped the Talwar with our industry-leading Tri-Ad® lock. Tried and tested, this super safe locking mechanism has proven to be unequalled by any folding knife lock in the industry – at any price!

Faster on the draw than any switchblade, our Talwar comes equipped with Andrew Demko's revolutionary ambidextrous thumb plate. By draw-snagging the knife on a pocket the awesome power of the Talwar can be in your hand at the speed of lightning!

Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Handle Feel
It's a very well-made knife and it's excellent for self..... little complaint though ,the handles just too slim for such a big blade. There's a fairly large section of Blade exposed . While it is folded closed . I would have liked the G10 to extend up and cover more of the blade . You got to be careful with this one, your fingers can get cut off easy in this knife.. Pay attention while deploying. It is nice and slim so it conceals well. In the pocket snag action .again Watch what your fingers are on the scales. The G10 is excellent. I just wish the handles had more stock.

Cold Steel Talwar: Premiere fighting knife!
The Talwar is one of the finest production fighting knives ever made. It's broad, curved blade gives it superior cutting and shearing ability. I have done extensive testing with the knife on clothing and meat targets and it out cuts everything in its class. The thin profile and superior blade geometry lends itself to the perfect cutting edge. The point is also a fearsome tool. The point is exceptionally strong for the thin profile and pierces effortlessly. The handle design is perfect for multiple grip styles and is perfect for fighting with the edge and the point. The Talwar literally flies out of the pocket with the thumb plate and is easily one of Cold Steel's fastest deploying blades. It rivals or surpasses most automatic knife deployments. The Talwar is a premiere fighting knife that can 'double' as a work knife. A superior blade for the modern warrior.
