OSI, Hunting Knife
Cold Steel®'s sub-hilt knives offer all the advantages and performance of a custom knife, with the additional advantage of being low in cost. The blades are made of Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel and are given a state-of-the-art heat-treatment that includes double tempering, assuring that they are unsurpassed in strength and toughness.
The grip on these blades is a model of efficiency and economy. The handle, guard and sub-hilt are injection-molded in one integral piece out of Kray-Ex™. This reduces cost, yet delivers the durability, security and control a sub-hilt is famous for. And, as an added bonus, renders the handles impervious to moisture or inclement weather.
The OSI is a very sturdy, single-edged version of the OSS (Product No. CST-39LSSC). Flat ground to a thin, ultra-keen edge, it too is an awesome 'sticker' and will cut and slash with equal aplomb! Extensively field-tested by Cold Steels® President Lynn C. Thompson, it has field-dressed, skinned and 'broken up' dozens and dozens of animals from wild boar to buffalo and proved to be an outstandingly efficient field knife.
AUS 8A Stainless Steel
Cold Steel® has been using the same expertly heat-treated Japanese AUS 8A steel for nearly 3 decades. This steel has tested amazingly well over the years and has proven to be an excellent steel for working knives - tough, corrosion resistant, with good edge holding and easy to re-sharpen.
