Drop Forged Wasp
Cold Steel® Monolithic Axe and Tool® Fixed Blades
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 Wasp
It's a real challenge to make a double-edged knife strong and tough enough to meet Cold Steel®'s standards, but the Drop Forged Wasp has exceeded all of their expectations. You see, there is nothing to break, become loose or wear out. Its monolithic construction makes the blade, guard and tang one inseparable piece! Only the handle scales are an 'add on' and they are quickly and easily replaced in the very unlikely event they break or wear out. Perfectly balanced with a sturdy, yet needle-sharp point and wasp waisted so it cuts coming and going. The Wasp is a frighteningly effective knife that's virtually bomb proof! Delivered with a terrific Secure-Ex® sheath, it's sure to last a lifetime if it's given a reasonable amount of maintenance.
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.
