43LS: Urban Pal-T Handle Push Knife
The Urban Pal push dagger should be standard equipment for survival in today's urban jungle. At 3/4 of an ounce, it's perfectly at home in a pocket or purse and can be easily attached to a key ring, or hung around the neck. With a 1 1/2" long blade, it's big enough to get the job done and its unique handle allows you to really put your weight into its point or edge. For added convenience, the Urban Pal push knife comes with a tough, Secure-Ex sheath, to safely house the blade yet make it available for instant access. Comes complete with Secure-Ex sheath.

I'm quite pleased with this little push-knife. Of course, it has a lightweight plastic handle and case, but that's to be expected at the price point. The blade is scary-sharp, and it seems to be set securely into the handle. The fit in the sheath is quite snug, and it would take a lot of removals to wear it down enough that it might fall out.
If I had a utility purpose for a small push-knife, I would have gone for a higher-end model. In my case, however, it serves the same purpose as the hat-pin I used to keep in the visor of my car: something small, sharp, and hidden that I can get to quickly if someone reaches in my car or grabs my arm while I'm out walking. (I live in a city, and personal assaults are all too common.) When on foot, I keep it in the watch pocket of my jeans, where the corner of the sheath lodges in the seam; when I pull the handle, the knife comes out while the sheath stays behind. I don't expect to take down a 250-pound mugger with it, but the secure grip and sharp blade mean I can jab a hand or an arm and give an attacker a chance to regret his actions. And honestly, if you laid that wicked little blade across the back of someone's hand, you'd do some major damage.
In short, I'm completely satisfied with this knife, and I hope I never need to find out whether I'd actually use it, or what would happen if I did. :)
After I received the product, I immediately ordered three more for my daughters, Fits perfectly in my hand, strong and sharp, Love it.
Great little backup blade for self-defense which is also handy for a myriad of cutting tasks. Like all Cold Steel knives it came hair shaving sharp out of the box.
I Bought this for my wife for when she goes to workout or walks from the car to job or when shopping. She loves that it because it is very discreet and it gives her a better chance of fending off an attacker.
Great knife and a useful little tool, but it needs a better sheath.
Awesome On my key ring, ready when and if needed.
This is a great little knife. Perfect for carrying on a key chain. This is probably my 5th one. Eventually I loose the knife and buy another one. What I like: Knife easily pops in and out of sheath, sharp enough for basic needs, easy to walk with at night, is not too big for keychain, and the unsharpened side makes a great flathead screwdriver. Cons: eventually the knife stops fitting so tight in sheath, falls out, and then I order another one.
Amazingly small and comfortable to use. One of the best utility knives I have ever had.
I keep this little knife in my boot and is ready for action in a flash. Just like all Cold Steel knives it came out the box razor sharp. Overall a great little self-defense knife and very versatile to carry!
Its just perfect. Thank you.
