Cold Steel 62KGM Rajah III. The Kukri's best attributes and enormous potential as a weapon and a tool have been well documented in our DVD's. We've made different variations of the Kukri over the years, some with longer blades, and some with shorter, but never, until now, have we had a version you could carry in your pocket as a folder.
The Rajah folders, designed by Andrew Demko, are big enough to approximate the feel and heft a fixed blade Kukri. Their broad, downward curved blades exhibit the best of a Kukri's characteristics. First, their unique shape presents their thin, hollow ground edges at just the right angle so they naturally bite deep instead of bouncing or skidding off. And secondly their points are thick, wide and sharp enough to pierce even the toughest targets.
The handle has some of the contours of fixed blade Kukri's with the addition of strategically placed curves and finger grooves. These features will facilitate 3 grip styles. One - very close to the cutting edge where you can really choke up on the handle for fine or delicate work. Two - by the middle for ordinary chores. And three - near the end or butt where you will have the most leverage and weight forward balance for heavy cutting or chopping and where you will receive maximum reach advantage.
The only suitable lock that can sustain the incredible impact forces generated by chopping strokes with a Rajah folder is our new TRI-AD lock. Designed specifically to take pressure off the smaller, more fragile interlocking surfaces of a rocker lock and transfer them to a uniquely positioned stop pin that will absorb and distribute these forces through the handle frame.
Carry the Rajah as you would any folder, using the clip to attach it to any reasonably sized pocket or clip it in your waistband. In an emergency all you have to do is grab it and open it in the conventional manner or snag its unique thumb plate on the edge of a pocket and snap it open.
The Cold Steel Rajah III knife, designed by custom knifemaker Andrew Demko, features a 3.5" Kukri style blade made of Japanese AUS 8A Sub Zero Quenched stainless steel, 4.0mm thick, with a flat grind. The blade has the Rajah III logo and patented thumb plate for ambidextrous one hand opening, as well as open on withdrawal. The contoured Grivory injection molded handle, 4.875" closed, has a forward deep finger choil, an aft finger choil, ambidextrous Tri-Ad Lock and a lanyard hole. A side to side reversible black metal pocket clip is mounted at the butt end. Overall length: 8.375". Weight: 4.4 ounces.
It's easy to write, when all you do is tell the truth. I personally do not believe you have any competition. Your attention to detail, superb staff, extraordinary products, phenomenal service, and outstanding prices ensure that. The professionalism that you all exhibit is the benchmark all others will have to try and measure up to... Perhaps not impossible, but daunting to say the least. In having you as an "aiming point," the industry will have to improve, if it wants to even approach you, and your company... The end result will be better for everyone. Please keep-up the great work.
