Cold Steel closeouts!
 
I thought I'd give you guys a heads up on some great deals on discontinued Cold Steel knives. They are selling some really cool knives at very convenient prices, for instance a Recon 1 is around $50 and the Talwar (which I never gave a second look because of the price) is around $168.

For those who like traditional slipjoints, their Camillus made Country Classics line is selling for $25 a pop! Those are great knives from a sadly gone manufacturer that was a big part of US cutlery history.

And for those who like folding pocket swords, the Rajah 1 with Andrew Demko's excelent Tri-Ad lock is going for $100!

Here's the link:

Excellent news Francisco. Thanks for posting.

While we don't mention the CS word around these parts because of their indifference to our Spartan testing ( :mad::rolleyes: ) - But, they still do make some good knives.

Thanks Francisco!! It's always nice to have the inside track on sales like this.

Ordered a pair of Recon 1s, my sons birthday is soon and I need another good folder myself. Thanks Francisco!

Yeah, that wasn't very nice of them. :mad: I've never been a fan of Lynn Thompson, but I do appreciate some of the knives they offer despite their company policy.

Recon 1s are tough! I'm sure you'll be happy with them. IMHO, they were a bit overpriced, compared to other folders in the same price range (most of which had better blade steel). I've been using mine for a while and I've got no complaints, sharp and strong.

Nice. Thanks for the heads up Francisco.

Quoted for Truth!

I ordered a Recon Spear Point as well. At that price it would make a great gift or forum give away in the future.

As my good friend Francisco has patiently taught me, you can never have TOO MANY good knives. :p

I've known Lynn Thompson for 20 years. He is a very strongly opinionated guy, but has never been out of line with me or anyone else that I have seen.

He did not seem to appreciate that I replace the rubber handles on his knives with Micarta, wood, or other materials, but he was not offended.

What is the CS company policy that is bad? I have sent a few knives that might have slipped through QC, and they have been replaced right away. And the CS parking lot sales are awesome.

Ordered a K4 neck knife and a Sax Machete.

I was looking at the neck knife and the spear point machete but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Great deals.
