Cold Steel PRESIDENT Lynn C thompson spent many years investigating the best features of high-end boot knives, and how best to apply them to a folder. The counter point Series represents the culmination of that extensive research and development. Available in three blade sizes (3", 4" and 6") their stiletto inspired spear point blades have a distinctively pronounced false edge and a lustrous satin finish, combining to make a blade that not only looks great, but delivers a show stopping performance! made from American CTS BD1 alloy steel, the counter point is highly corrosion and Stain resistant and takes a very sharp, and durable edge. The expertly designed handle is lightweight, but incredibly strong. Made from griv-ex polymer and reinforced with heat treated aluminum liners, the handle is comfortable and secure in almost any grip imaginable. For added strength and safety, we equipped the counter point with our tri-ad locking mechanism, proven to be the strongest lock in the industry today, strong, light, versatile, concealable and above all functional, the counter point Series takes the best features of a quality boot knife and combines it with the ease of carry of a high performance folder. It's both a functional and attractive EDC (every day carry) knife and a Steadfast resource in any rescue or emergency situation.
