Cold Steel Kudu, Zytel Handle, Lock Release Ring, Plain
In South Africa, an inexpensive ring lock
folder is sold everywhere. Itís a good design, but itís constructed
from sub-standard materials, is poorly made, and is horribly
overpriced. And yet, millions of these knives are sold there each year.
Well, we thought we could do better, in the quality of materials,
cutting performance, and in price. The Cold Steel Kudu, takes some cues
from its South African competition, but our version is vastly superior.
Ours has a Krupp 4116 Stainless steel flat ground blade, heat treated
to Rc 56-57 for better edge holding ability and ease of re-sharpening,
and a thin razor sharp edge. For safety, we have thoroughly tested the
locking mechanism and are well satisfied it will hold the blade rigidly
open until you decide to close it by pulling up on the ring attached to
the back spring. The handle of the Kudu also reflects our dedication to
making an effective and affordable folder. Itís made of 43% glass
reinforced Zytel®. This material has proven to be extremely strong, and
is stiff enough to compliment the blade and spring when locked open.
Plus, the gripping surface has a wood grain texture for traction and
features an attractive polished steel Kudu horn emblem for a little
extra flair! We think the Kudu represents an unbelievable value. Itís
ready for anything and makes a wonderful work knife, utility knife,
bait knife, or hunting knife.
