4-Max, Folding Knife
Andrew Demko is one of the most respected custom knife makers in the industry. The incomparable strength and bold overbuilt
aesthetics of his work have developed quite a following, and his custom knives have become highly collectible in recent years.
Andrew has a well-established collaborative history with Cold Steel, working not only as a designer and member of the Research
and Development team, but also as one of the PROOF crew, making world-renowned cuts in Cold Steel’s promotional testing
videos. As a lifelong Martial Artist (with a 5th Degree Black Belt in Aikido), Andrew shares many of the same interests as Cold
Steel’s President Lynn C. Thompson, and together they have collaborated to design some of the most popular knives.
The 4-MAX was produced with one goal in mind: to deliver a folding knife with the maximum strength and performance possible
within a 10 cm blade limit. Bridging the gap between production knives and expensive custom offerings, the 4-Max is made to
Andrew’s exact specifications and from highest-grade American-made materials*.
Its extra wide, drop point stonewashed blade is made from American CPM-20CV steel, offering a near perfect balance between
durability and edge holding performance. The tumbled titanium liners and back spacers and the Cool Grey 3-D CNC-machined and
bead-blasted American G-10 provide even greater degrees of strength!
Equipped with the ground breaking Tri-Ad® locking mechanism, this knife is quite possibly the strongest production folder
Cold Steel has ever produced! It has passed every one of Cold Steel’s grueling and torturous shock and impact tests, and then
gone on to easily hold over 360 kg (800 lbs) of free hanging weight – with no damage!
If you are looking for a highly collectible mega-folder made with the specifications, tolerances and materials normally only
found on a luxury custom knife ? then your search is over! Check out the 4-MAX today!
This finely grained, powdered American tool steel combines very forgiving hard-use durability with vastly superior corrosion and
wear resistance. A popular choice for high-end custom makers, its edge holding abilities are frankly outstanding. An excellent
choice for hard-wearing knives that require a very sharp, long-lasting edge.
