Drop Forged Hunter, Hunting Knife
Cold Steel® Monolithic Axe and Tool® Fixed Blades
2019 Model with dark finish
Cold Steel® President Lynn C. Thompson has become enamored with the simple functionality of drop-forged knives. Their solid one-piece construction allows for new levels of strength and durability, and their bare-bones ruggedness has an undeniable appeal to Lynn, who's been an avid survivalist, hunter and outdoorsman. These incredibly tough and hard-wearing blades have no leather or wood handle to crack, rot or break, and no loose parts to break, damage or lose in the field. They are easy to maintain and clean, and inexpensive enough that you can afford a spare to add to your hunting pack or bug-out-bag.
Cold Steel®'s Monolithic fixed blades are drop-forged (not cheaply cast!) from 52100 high carbon steel. Their solid steel bodies are expertly heat-treated from the tip of their sharp blades to the butt of their stout handles. Furthermore, each one is ergonomically contoured with a deep trough in the handle for a comfortable and secure grip. Easy to modify and simple to customize, they also make great 'project knives' for re-handling, filework, engraving or any other fun modification projects.
Drop Forged Hunter
Inspired by a solid steel hunting knife by French knife maker Michel Achez, Cold Steel®'s Drop Forged Hunter is a no-nonsense hard-working outdoor/hunting knife and tool. It features a continuously curved, super-wide blade that is both sharp and strong and designed to put in great work in even the most demanding conditions. With its handsome and weatherproof dark grey finish and modern Secure-Ex® sheath, the Drop Forged Hunter brings all the best features of a time-honored hunter's knife, but in a thoroughly modern package!
52100 High Carbon Steel
52100 High Carbon is a hard-wearing steel which is an excellent choice for custom hunting and outdoor fixed blades. Often used by custom knife makers in forged blades that require toughness and wear resistance in unforgiving conditions.
