12DBSJ1: Safe Maker I Push Knife (VG-1 Steel Blade)
Cold Steel Knives

Cold Steel has been making push knifes for a quarter century. In those 25 years, they have continually been refining their designs, discarding features that didn't perform as well as they would have liked and enhancing those that did. These blades, and the wealth of experience that has gone into their manufacture, have paid off handsomely for Cold Steel as they have generated quite a following among law enforcement and military personnel around the world. This is because they offer big knife cutting and piercing potential in a very compact, easily portable size, and, unlike a revolver or semi automatic pistol, they never break, malfunction, or run out of ammunition.

Designed by Lynn C. Thompson, the Safe Make push knifes are, without doubt, the finest commercially made push knives in the world. The blade, shaft, and T shaped tang are all drop forged from one piece of VG-1 Stainless Steel. This process, though costly, eliminates any unwanted sharp edges or surfaces that would irritate the hand or fingers when the knife is clasped in a closed fist, and it produces a better knife, since the subsequent vacuum heat treatment and sub zero quench, renders the blades virtually unbreakable.

Well made blades deserve equally well-made grips. A lot of time and energy went into the production of our T shaped handles. Made of shock absorbing Kray-Ex they totally encapsulate the tang and part of the shaft so they can be comfortably and securely grasped in the fist with the blade jutting out between the fingers and used to deliver absolutely devastating punching and slashing blows.

Each Safe Maker includes an easily concealable and sturdy Secure-Ex boot/belt sheath and a steel bead chain lanyard so it can be worn as a neck knife.

To start with, Osogrande customer service was a pleasure to work with on my order. There was a mishap when myself and another gentleman with the same name but different address placed orders at the same time. The service department was courteous and quickly got to the root of the problem and corrected it. I am now the proud owner of two of the finest push daggers in the world. Smooth finish, strongly made, needle point, excellent grip, and they hold a remarkable edge. Note: check out the Coldsteel demonstration video on YouTube. Further note: out of the box, the Sexurex sheath is disconcertingly difficult to draw the knife from. Previous reviews about this problem had initially scared me away from this product. The problem is overstated. A few minutes with a fingernail file to two smile points on a hinged flap loosen things to the point where the knife comes free easily when needed but still holds the knife securely the remainder of the time. A THICK LEATHER BELT IS REQUIRED FOR US OF THE SHEATH DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT WILL OTHERWISE CO ME WITH THE KNIFE WHEN DRAWN. The sheath does not work for Pocket carry due to the reasons just noted.

Got this for my wife as an EDC self-defense weapon that could also do light-duty utility cutting. It is a solid built knife, very sharp and the sheath holds it so securely that it is rather hard to extract it without a really hard pull.

Fits in sheath perfectly. This is a sweet dagger for self defense. Cold Steel does a great job with each knife I have ever tried. This is sharp !!! Be careful for sure. Great price as well.
