CS53HS: 53HS Spike Tokyo
Cold Steel
The Spike, designed by Barry Dawson, is a weapon pared down to its bare essentials. Its thick, narrow blade is distal tapered and flat ground to a zero edge. This creates a unique cross section that facilitates both penetration of the tip and cutting power previously unknown in such a thick, narrow blade. The integral handle of the spike complements its minimalist theme. It has been carefully shaped out of solid steel, wrapped with cord and had all of its sharp edges "melted" so they don't irritate the hand. Each spike comes with a sturdy Secure-Ex sheath and steel bead lanyard so you can wear it around your neck or lash it to a "D" ring, fanny pack, or other gear.

Dancing Blade!
Love this thing! Its a thick robust blade. I know that everybody talks about how your hand will slide up to the blade... Maybe it can happen if you're stabbing a concrete wall but this slender blade will probably not meet too much resistance on a softer target. The cord wrapping does surprisingly a good job of providing friction on the thrust. I have large hands and long fingers but this grip (for its intended purposes of concealment and defense) is not too bad at all. The key is not to "fist" the grip with your palm, but to wrap your fingers around it. The thinness of the grip gives it a nice maneuverability that moves fluidly around your hand. It dances in your hand! Some minor imperfections on the grind I noticed. it wasn't too sharp out of the box. But because of the sheer thickness of the blade, it maybe a bit harder to get a keen thin hollow grind edge. But then again, to maintain that edge, you would need a better steel than this... Long story short, it is done right for its steel and its purpose:: conceal, stab and get out. You don't need too much edge retention for that. The sheath is pretty good. anything else would cost more. This does its job well. No rattle, snug fit. Use your thumb to push it out. If you don't you end up tugging at it which would be clumsy. I wear this knife in an appendix carry. I rigged a small monkey's fist with a 550 cord so it doesn't slide down my pants. Nobody can see it even with a thin tee shirt. I like this so much I ordered another one. I think the length is long enough for self defense (reaching vital organs and providing some reach) while being thin and light for it to be carried very concealed. My favorite part of this knife? Love the sound it makes when you drop it flat on a wooden table. That metallic "cling"...

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Well made. Secure sheath. Fairly comfortable.
Handy little fixed blade & looks cool as hell. Thought it would be impractical as a neck knife due to weight & length but it's surprisingly unobtrusive to wear. Being a Cold Steel, it's well made for the price.
