police officer, deputy sheriff or state trooper is often a thankless
job performed under frequently dangerous and trying circumstances. Now
Cold Steel is pleased to give these real American Heroes a knife named
in their honor and expressly designed to serve them the American
Lawman. Built like a proverbial tank, it's comfortable in the most
extreme environments and will shrug off the harshest abuse like water
off a duck's back. This is one super tough knife that can be relied on,
even in life or death situations.
point blade is civilian friendly in appearance yet big, wide and most
importantly, pointed enough for any cutting or piercing task. Made from
Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel and hollow ground to a thin, hand
polished edge, it's as sharp as a serpent's tooth and will easily sever
the toughest, most fibrous materials. To further protect it from rust
and the constant exposure to inclement weather, it comes with a black,
non-reflective Teflon finish.
law enforcement officers never really know what is in store for them
from one shift to the next, we thought it was very important to make
the American Lawman's handle as versatile and user friendly as
possible. Supplied with dual pocket clips and twin thumb studs, it's
completely ambidextrous and can be opened one handed in a flash. Plus,
due to its well thought out finger grooves, it's equally comfortable
and effective in either a forward or reverse grip and can be even
choked up on for tasks requiring extra fine edge or point control.
a firm grip on their knife when their hands are cold, wet, tired or
oily is also a major priority for law enforcement officers. That's why
we have made the American Lawman's handle with heat-treated steel
liners (for extra strength and stiffness) overlaid with black,
aggressively textured G-10 handle scales. We believe this construction
method is ideal as it's lightweight, enormously strong and most
importantly offers terrific traction to the hand so the skin and flesh
of the fingers stick to it like glue.
the lock break on your folder is serious and may result in badly cut
fingers. But if the lock fails on a police officer's knife, it could be
a genuine disaster and result in loss of life or limb. That's why we
have provided each American Lawman with the new Tri-Ad locking
mechanism. Designed to withstand terrific impact forces and weight
loads transferred to it's mechanism from the edge, point and even back
of the blade, it has passed with flying colors and never failed even
once despite being subjected to the most gruesome torture testing
scenarios we could devise.
