Being a police officer, deputy sheriff or state trooper is often a thankless job performed under frequently dangerous and trying circumstances. Yet our nation’s law enforcement officers continue to tirelessly serve their fellow citizens and provide the “thin blue line” that holds evil at bay and allows us to live in peace and prosperity.
Now Cold Steel is pleased to give these real American Heroes a knife named in their honor and expressly designed to serve them—the American Lawman. Built like a proverbial tank, it’s comfortable in the most extreme environments and will shrug off the harshest abuse like water off a duck’s back. This is one super tough knife that can be relied on, even in life or death situations.
The drop point blade is “civilian friendly” in appearance yet big, wide and most importantly, pointed enough for any cutting or piercing task. Made from Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel and hollow ground to a thin, hand-polished edge, it’s as sharp as a serpent’s tooth and will easily sever the toughest, most fibrous materials. To further protect it from rust and the constant exposure to inclement weather, it comes with a black, non-reflective Teflon finish.
Supplied with dual pocket clips and twin thumb studs, it’s completely ambidextrous and can be opened one-handed in a flash. Plus, due to its well thought out finger grooves, it’s equally comfortable and effective in either a forward or reverse grip and can be even “choked up on” for tasks requiring extra fine edge or point control.
We have provided each American Lawman with our new TRI-AD locking mechanism. Designed to withstand terrific impact forces and weight loads transferred to it’s mechanism from the edge, point and even back of the blade, it has passed with flying colors and never failed even once despite being subjected to the most gruesome torture testing scenarios we could devise.
