Cold Steel Knives
Cold Steel has never been afraid to break with convention. Function is always paramount. These knives are made to work; and when it comes to knives, bigger is always better.
Inspired by the classical Navaja knives of Spain, but utterly modern in both appearance and materials, these mega-folders became an immediate sensation!
A design collaboration between celebrated custom knife maker Andrew Demko and Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson, the Espada series are a perfect amalgam of Demko's engineering genius and Thompson's vast knowledge of edged weapons and tools.
Available in three sizes to suit the bold, the bolder and the boldest, these huge high performance folders are actually surprisingly easy to carry. Expertly designed to fit comfortably in your pocket, you'll soon forget that you are carrying such a large and impressive blade.
Built to snap into action in a flash thanks to the patented Demko Thumb Plate, the Espadas can be snagged on your pocket, actually opening the knife as you draw it -- and bringing it in to play in the blink of an eye!
The Espada's beautiful, flat ground, blades are made from premium American CTS XHP Alloy Steel. This USA powdered super steel was chosen for its ability to not only take a super-fine cutting edge, but to hold it for an exceptionally long time. Each knife is hand honed to a level of sharpness that is more at home on a surgeon's scalpel, creating a level of cutting performance that simply is astonishing.
In order to protect your fingers from this wickedly sharp blade, each Espada is equipped with the patented Tri-Ad locking mechanism, proven to be the strongest lock in the world and virtually impervious to shock -- making it almost impossible for the blade to close on your hand.
In Cold Steel's notoriously brutal product testing, the XL Espada was not only capable of easily holding 600 lb of free hanging weight, but Cold Steel even used it to support a hanging engine block!
These incredibly popular, world renowned knives are available in two distinct configurations.
The classic Espada series, which gained even more popularity after its appearance in the movie The Expendables (where it was carried and used by Mickey Rourke) features a rich satin polished blade, polished G10 scales and positively gleaming 7075 Aluminum bolsters and frame.
Alternatively, the Espada series is also available in a slightly more slim-line, tactical blackout edition, with a hard-wearing DLC coated blade and matte black American G10 handle scales.
Whether you choose the elegance of the Medium model or the sheer majesty of the giant XL version, or any of the knives in between, you can be sure that Espada will be a talking point among your friends and loved ones for years to come.
