Default 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 ( ) - But, they still do make some good knives.

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

Yeah, that wasn't very nice of them. 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.

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.

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.

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