Default A couple of new folders

My wife and I had coffee with a friend today, and he handed over a few more gifts that he said were late birthday presents.

He gave me the large Cold Steel Rajah 2 a couple of weeks ago, and to day he gave me the CS Rajah 3 and the CS Folding Bushman.

The R3 is the smaller version of the R2 and may be suitable for EDC. The R2 will be used mostly when I'm out in the boonies.

The Folding Bushman is a cool, low priced folder with a unique lockback. For having a sheetmetal handle it is surprisingly comfortable in the hand. The lock is released by pulling back on the part with the small lanyard attached. Very sturdy.

Here is the R2 (for scale), along with the R3 and the Folding Bushman.



The Rajah's have the nifty little tab on the blade that snags on the pocket as you pull it out, flipping the blade open. The Folding Bushman has a small thumb stud, but the geometry is a little off for me. Might work better after it breaks in.

Nice additions...Can I guess that they're sharp?

The evidence of their sharpness is two patches on my leg that are devoid of hair.

Smooth like an egg, as Dave Chappelle would say.

That R2 is a great looking knife. Does it function well? Would you recommend getting one?

It gets my 100% recommendation. Very well made, very smooth, and it opens from the pocket just like it was designed to do.

Well I was just making sure. A buddy of mine used to give me knives just to get rid of 'em, and he gave me one so sharp you could shave with it (I did in fact) then he turned around and gave me one so dull it couldn't cut its way out of a paper bag. But then again, I'm not too sure he's all there. Either that or he's so drunk his brain swims in vodka. Who knows?

He gets his own guns. But then I work on them for him. He started off a customer when I had my gun store, and was such a pain in the butt that my partner refused to deal with him.

I treated him well and we became great friends. But he has never forgiven me for introducing him to the concept of Karma.

Cold Steel tends to ship their knives out sharp enough to shave. A very impressive edge for a factory blade. They used to sharpen their knives for $10, too. Not bad to have an old beat up knife and get the factory edge back on it for $10.
