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. Keeping a firm grip on their knife when their hands are cold, wet, tired or oily is also a major priority for law enforcement officers. That’s why we have made the American Lawman’s handle with heat-treated steel liners (for extra strength and stiffness) overlaid with black, aggressively textured G-10 handle scales. We believe this construction method is ideal as it’s lightweight, enormously strong and most importantly offers terrific traction to the hand so the skin and flesh of the fingers stick to it like glue.
