Cold Steel is proud to include a series of knives named in honor of, and expressly designed to serve, our brothers and sisters in Law Enforcement.
These rugged knives are designed to perform in the most extreme environments and shrug off the harshest abuse, while still remaining comfortable to use and easy to carry.
Their "civilian friendly" and intentionally non-intimidating drop point blades are still big and sharp enough for almost any task. The Lawman's blades are made from American CTS XHP Alloy premium performance steel which is hollow ground to a thin, hand-polished edge and then DLC (Diamond Like) coated for ultimate endurance.
The American Lawman series handles are also designed to be as versatile and user friendly as possible. Made from textured American G10, and expertly sculpted for maximum grip security in even the coldest, wettest conditions they are fully ambidextrous and easily worn, carried and used whether you are left or right handed.
A lock failure on your folder is incredibly dangerous and may result in severely lacerated digits or even the loss of a finger - but if the lock fails on a police officer's knife, it could be a genuine disaster and result in loss of life! That's why Cold Steel has provided each American Lawman with the Tri-Ad locking mechanism. Designed to withstand terrific impact forces and almost impervious to shock, it has passed the most gruesome torture testing in the industry.
