The Cold Steel Model 20KK Kudu (formerly 20K or CS20K), takes some cues from its South African competition, but the Cold Steel Kudu Ring Pull Lock is vastly superior. This economical knife has a 5Cr15MoV Stainless steel flat ground blade, heat treated to Rc 56-57 for better edge holding ability and ease of re-sharpening, and a thin razor sharp edge.
The handle of the Cold Steel Kudu also reflects Cold Steel'a dedication to making an effective and affordable folder. It's made of 43% glass reinforced Zy-Ex (Zytel). This material has proven to be extremely strong, and is stiff enough to compliment the blade and spring when locked open. Plus, the gripping surface has a wood grain texture for traction and features an attractive polished steel Kudu horn emblem for a little extra flair! We think the Kudu represents an unbelievable value. It's ready for anything and makes a wonderful work knife, utility knife, bait knife, or hunting knife.
