They lost my respect and patronage when I discovered that some of their products, marketed even as "cold steel exclusive" are actually made by windlass steelcrafts. Although these do usually tend to be the larger items such as swords, war hammers, and axes that a person usually wouldn't carry in their day to day life. Cold steel may even own windlass, or vice versa, but the feeling of dishonesty is still there.

Kinda like when I discovered that Ford has a lot of their products built, or major components assembled, in Mexico. The difference? At least Ford admits it. I've still turned my back on Ford though, albeit for different reasons entirely.

That's freaking nice. Does it come in non serrated?

I can try to research, but I have seen this knife only with the wicked serrations. I think the idea is that the extra damage of the serrations makes up for the smaller size of the blade. The blade is very light and goes through material like soft butter. I stabbed the knife through a piece of leather, and it easily ripped through the leather on a side motion. Very devastating wound on a body. Herbertz is an excellent knife maker.

Too bad my local government thinks they're too dangerous or somehow incite people to commit crimes because of the nature of their design.
I love my Covert Automatic!! I never leave home without it.

A short Ka-Bar, the downsized version of the USMC fighting knife. Big enough to fit your needs, but not so big that it'll draw undue attention. And, it's made in U.S.A.

Cold Steel products are almost all of medicore quality, and vastly overrated.

Be sure to check local laws. For instance, in Texas this knife would be illegal due to it's being double edged, no matter what the length.

Right but the size is what I want. The specifically named blades I can't carry are Bowie, dirk, dagger. And a few other ridiculous things I'd never carry anyway

What about the Ka-Bar TDI Law Enforcement knife? Good maker, fixed blade, serrated or non-serrated blade, belt holster, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
