CS12DCST: 12DCST Safe Maker II
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 VG-1 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.

Tight grasp in sheath, but not too much pull to release. Haven't had to sharpen yet, but can assume it holds an edge. Great dog walking tool: if some lil beasty try's for my lil girl,..they will 'GET SOME"! Great product,.. Very confident! Thank you. R.P.

Cons: None
CQC-3 are a great addition
I have always wanted to own an Emerson knife since I used to work for a company of a similar name. My company has since changed names, but I wasn't going to miss out on this opportunity. I picked up two knives, one for my wife and one for me. The action is a little stiff, but I am sure will loosen up with time. I do like the Wave (R) feature, but it is a little hard to use because of the stiff action. I plan to move to this knife for my EDC and put my Buck Red-point in my drawer once it gets broken in.
