Drop Forged Hunter, Hunting Knife with Black Powder-Coating and Secure-Ex® Sheath – 2017 Model
Cold Steel Monolithic Fixed Blade
Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson has become enamored with the simple functionality of drop-forged knives. Their solid
one-piece construction allows for new levels of strength and durability, and their bare-bones ruggedness has an
undeniable appeal to Lynn, who’s been an avid survivalist, hunter and outdoorsman.
These incredibly tough and hard-wearing blades have no leather or wood handle to crack, rot or break, and no loose parts to
break, damage or lose in the field. They are easy to maintain and clean, and inexpensive enough that you can afford a spare to
add to your hunting pack or bug-out-bag.
Cold Steel’s Monolithic fixed blades are drop-forged (not cheaply cast!) from 52100 high carbon steel. Their solid steel bodies
are expertly heat-treated from the tip of their sharp blades to the butt of their stout handles. Furthermore, each one is
ergonomically contoured with a deep trough in the handle for a comfortable and secure grip. Easy to modify and simple to
customize, they also make great project knives for re-handling, filework, engraving or any other fun modification projects.
Cold Steel’s drop-forged blades come complete with a Secure-Ex® sheath.
Drop Forged Hunter
Inspired by a solid steel hunting knife by French knife maker Michel Achez, Cold Steel’s Drop Forged Hunter is a no-nonsense
hard-working outdoor/hunting knife and tool. It features a continuously curved, super-wide blade that is both sharp and strong and
designed to put in great work in even the most demanding conditions.
With its handsome and weatherproof black powder-coat and modern Secure-Ex® sheath, the Drop Forged Hunter brings all the best
features of a time-honored hunter’s knife, but in a thoroughly modern package!
52100 High Carbon Steel
52100 High Carbon is a hard-wearing steel which is an excellent choice for custom hunting and outdoor fixed blades. Often used by
custom knife makers in forged blades that require toughness and wear resistance in unforgiving conditions.
