Two Handed katana Machete 24" Sheath

Two Handed katana Machete 24

8.64

Have you ever longed to pick up your expensive, high performance Samurai sword and run amok through the woods stabbing, cutting, chopping and hacking every inanimate object in sight without the fear of losing all your hard earned money by damaging it?

That's why we created the Katana Machete. Made in our factory in South Africa, it offers a 19" long blade with a modified Tanto style point. Heattreated to a tough spring temper and sporting a black, baked-on anti-rust finish, it comes with a good utility edge that can easily be fully sharpened. To facilitate one or two-handed use, we have paired the blade with a long handle, complete with a sturdy cross guard. Injection molded over the blade's tang, and further secured by two thick bolts, it shrugs off hard knocks and defies the elements.

To keep your machete edge in tip-top condition we recommend "The Puck" from Lansky Sharpeners.

As the saying goes, "the pen is mightier than the sword." Indeed, Cold Steel makes some mighty strong swords, but this little pen makes for some clever competition. It's the biggest, baddest, permanent marker around!

Superficially, it shares many features common to most markers, but appearances can be deceptive. For starters, it's made from the glass-reinforced plastic, Grivory, the same tough material we use in our Nightshade Series, and features walls that are 4 times thicker than similar markers. This means it's built for impact and and functions as an efficient Yawara stick. Plus, the screw-top cap will stay in place and won't pop off like a regular marker's cap would when you strike a percussion blow, or when obtaining joint locks or submission holds.

Mini Koga SD2

Mini Koga SD2

Bob Koga began his martial arts career at an early age beginning with Judo at 12 and moving on to wrestling in high school. After graduation Bob joined the Air Force and, while stationed in Japan, he resumed his Judo training as well as studying Jiu Jitsu, Jo-do and Aikido. After finishing his stint in the Air Force, Bob moved to Los Angeles where he joined the LAPD and served with great distinction for 25 years.

During his tenure with the LAPD, Bob became widely recognized as an outspoken proponent of the straight baton as opposed to the PR24® or side handle baton (currently popular in departments across the land).

Made of virtually unbreakable plastic, the SD can increase the ability of the average person to defend himself several times over. With proper training, it can function as a fantastic aid in leverage when obtaining joint locks or submission holds. But where it really shines is as an intermediate impact tool. You see, police and civilians alike face a perplexing dilemma when contemplating employing fist or baton blows. Blows struck with the fist may be too weak, or worse, result in a broken hand, while blows struck with a baton may be too powerful resulting in grave injury or even death. The SD however, solves this problem, neatly bridging the gap by concentrating and magnifying the effect of hand blows while minimizing the likelihood of permanent injury or death.

Escrima Stick

Escrima Stick

23.76

Since 1980, when he first read Guru Dan Inosanto’s book, “The Filipino Martial Arts”, our President, Lynn C. Thompson, has diligently studied and trained in these disciplines. Lynn’s extensive sparing experiences, combined with his study and training had an immeasurable impact in shaping Cold Steel into the company it is today.

Our brand new Cold Steel Escrima Stick resembles a traditional rattan stick in length, weight, and cross section, it is however, much more durable because it is injection molded from super tough black polypropylene. It measures 32” long and is 1” in diameter and weighs a little over 15 ounces. Unlike rattan, it resists mildew, and won’t dry out, warp, crack splinter or shrink, and with the use of a saw, it can easily be modified to any length. Plus, like our baseball bats, Bokken, and African Walking Stick, it is easy to clean and is so resistant to impact stresses and the elements, that it is virtually unbreakable and practically indestructible. We’re confident that stick fighting enthusiasts and the Filipino Martial Arts Community will want to add one or more of these sticks to their training arsenal.

More than 3 million ring lock folding knives are sold in the African Continent every year. These highly functional knives are owned and carried by people from every walk of life and are the go-to every day tool for almost every conceivable task. These versatile knives have stood the test of time, they have been in-use continuously for centuries and with good reason - they work!

Cold Steel's President Lynn C Thompson has long admired these knives and has seen them put to great use during his many visits to Africa since the 1980s. Now, we are proud to offer our interpretations of these enduring ring lock folders that we have called the Kudu and the Eland, and we are going to go "out on a limb" and state - these are the best folding knives in their price range in the world!

Both the Kudu and the Eland feature highly rust resistant and beautifully mirror polished stainless steel blades that are expertly heat treated to offer an excellent balance between edge holding and ease of re-sharpening. Their glass reinforced Zy-Ex handles are not only attractive (with a wood grain texture and polished silver embellishments) but they are incredibly strong and durable.

Amazingly lightweight, versatile and functional, and affordable on almost any budget. The Eland and the Kudu represent a new standard in low cost, high performance folders. There is simply no excuse not to buy one today!

Pocket Bushman - BD1 Steel

Pocket Bushman - BD1 Steel

39.96

The Bushman® has been a mainstay of the Cold Steel line for more than a decade now. It's an economically simple design, with winning features like strength, versatility, and an affordable price. It's practically perfect! So, rather than upstage the Bushman, we've created a complement to it, a version small enough to carry with you everywhere you go. The new Pocket Bushman.

While it's physically impossible for any folding knife to ever match the strength and rigidity of a fixed blade, we believe our Pocket Bushman, with its new patent pending lock, is close to hitting the mark. The blade is long and wide with a short, sharp, clip point for usefulness and versatility. And it’s hollow ground from top to bottom with just enough belly to be useful for all sorts of tasks.

For the handle, we used the mono block construction method famously used in the French Douk Douk line of knives. There are several advantages to using the mono block. It's simple to mass-produce, and, since there are no liners, handle scales or back spacers, the end result is quite affordable. A single sheet of stainless steel is folded in half to form a housing for the closed blade, as well as supplying the enormous strength and rigidity required to complement our Ram Safe™ lock.

Andrew Demko designed the Ram Safe™ lock to work in tandem with the mono block handle. It features a unique, self adjusting ram that moves forward as the knife is opened and wedges itself tightly between the tang cut away we call the "shelf" and the "U" shaped "roof" of the handle. It's powered by a strong compression spring that urges the ram forward and makes for an incredibly strong lock up. Positive pressure on the lock generated by heavy cutting or chopping strokes is distributed through the blade, then the blade tang shoulder and finally directly into the mono block handle that acts like a giant unbreakable stop pin. Negative pressure from sticking, digging or prying with the point is directed in a different direction through the blade to the blade tang shelf and then to the ram which is squeezed between the shelf and the "U" shaped roof of the handle. Negative pressure easily defeats the vast majority of lock mechanisms. The only way the Ram Safe™ lock can be overcome is if the blade breaks or if the pivot pin is sheared off. Two situations that are highly improbable.
