The original 4-Max (Product No. 62RM or 62RN) proved to be all that Cold Steel® hoped for. But it was expensive and difficult to manufacture and deliver in a timely manner to meet customer demand. The 4-Max Scout is easier to produce and is a far more affordable alternative.
It features an extra wide drop point blade with stonewash finish, which is identical to the original 4-Max. It's crafted from 5 mm thick AUS 10A steel for strength, toughness and edge holding potential. The handle's silhouette mirrors the original, but instead of a G-10 handle, the 4-Max Scout has one made of Griv-Ex™ with stainless steel liners and a Griv-Ex™ back spacer.
Equipped with Andrew Demko's ground breaking Tri-Ad® locking mechanism the 4-Max Scout has passed every one of Cold Steel®'s grueling shock and impact tests and then gone on to hold 600 lbs (approx. 270 kg) of free hanging weight with no damage!
AUS 10A Stainless Steel
AUS 10A is equal in strength and toughness to AUS 8A, but has the extraordinary advantage of an additional 20% in edge-holding ability. This ability to retain a sharp edge for a longer period of time gives it wider performance advantages over other, more common stainless steels.
