43XLS: Urban Edge Push Dagger, 50/50 Edge
Cold Steel has been singing the praises of high quality push knives for over 20 years. A well-made push knife is a surprisingly versatile and useful everyday utility tool. Its secure grip allows the user to open their hand while still having full control over the knife. Many of our staff uses them regularly - opening boxes, pausing to sign for deliveries or type on computers or tablets - all without the knife ever leaving their hand!
Light enough to be worn as a neck knife or hung from a key ring or a purse, but still packing enough cutting power to handle tasks that would challenge even some of our competitor's larger knives, the Best Pal also makes a formidable last resort self defense tool.
Our first small-scale double-edged push knife, the Best Pal has one serrated edge for tough cutting chores and one plain edge for fine work.
The expertly designed handle offers a secure and comfortable grip, padding the fingers when making big slashes and cuts. This awesome knife is complemented by our sturdy Secure-Ex™ sheath and a black bead lanyard chain.

I love this knife. I carry it everyday mainly for self-defense but I find myself using it so much for other cutting chores that I think I will get another one so that I have one for self-defense and one for usage. It is so handy, lightweight, sharp and easy to carry.
I rely on knives as my primary means of self defense and this little knife is perfect for the job. It's lightweight, great for concealment, has an excellent grip, secure sheath and two hair shaving sharp edges all for a reasonable price. I like it so much I'll be buying more for my family and friends.
Excellent quality and construction. It's easy to carry and handle.
Small, extremely sharp, easy to conceal, good sheath and comfortable handle. Overall a good knife for self defense and the best price I found.
The knife is very well made and versatile. The knife is small enough, easy to carry and very sharp! I prefer it more than a folder. My only complaint is that I wish the sheath had a belt or boot clip.
My wife loves it! Its small, easy to carry, has a good sheath and lethal.
During the winter I keep it in my front pocket on my jacket or hoodie. It's pretty small and only gets held in place by the index and middle finger but I can hold the thing in my hand in my pocket and no one is the wiser. It's more of a get off me knife than anything else but it would do that job very effectively and it's quick to deploy from the front pocket.
Great knife, weak sheath.
The other reviewer hit it perfect. 5 for the knife/1 for the sheath. I duct taped the knife in the sheath so it would stay there. This is not a "working Knife". It is thin and light and will not hold up to constant use, but will make a great surprise for someone who is annoying you.
This is a great little hide-out knife that can be concealed on multiple areas of your clothing or just worn as a neck knife. It is so light you'll forget you've got it until the need arises. Needless to say it has Cold Steel's famous razor sharp edges. Highly recommend.
Thanks Oso for the quick delivery. The knife is sharp nice quality. The handle has great texture providing a comfortable fit. The Sheath is very week. The knife when worn around the neck will fall out with limited activity. If your in a hand to hand combat be aware that when you need your knife it may not be there. Knife quality a 5 the sheath a 1 for its inability to hold the knife.
The Best Pal is a great knife! It is the perfect size for EDC but it is large enough to be a formidable self defense weapon. The The knife came free of defects and razor sharp! The kray-ex handle provides excellent grip and the blade is full tang. As always with Oso Grande I received the knife very quickly! 100% recommend this knife for a self defense/utility knife! At just about 20 bucks, what's holding you back?
Great dagger, arrived sharp, great sheath with multiple carry options! I gave one to my girlfriend who has been carrying an Urban Pal for years. She loves the Best Pal! I guess size really does matter!
Has an excellent grip. This little knife is the perfect little hide-out knife.
This knife is an excellent self defense knife. It's not too big or too small. It is very sharp. The sheath is easy to attach to something without being in the way. The only thing I wish it had was a clip on the sheath, so I could place it on my belt. I recommend these if you want a pocket size knife that is very capable but not overly intimidating. The handle is very comfortable. I highly recommend this knife and Oso Grande has the best price that I have found.
