Cold Steel
The Hold Out has fast become one of Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson's favorite folding knives.

Ideal for military and law enforcement personnel, or just law abiding citizens who may find themselves in harm's way, the Hold Out series provide the comfort and peace of mind that comes from carrying a high performance folder but in an astoundingly lightweight and easy to carry package.

Ounce for ounce, they may well be the strongest folding knives in the industry! Their beautiful, minimalist design is a wonder of functionality; while deceptively simple in appearance, they represent a huge array of design breakthroughs and a staggering amount of performance!

The Hold Out's beautiful satin polished blades are extremely broad; they are flat ground from the spine, with a shallow "V" cross-section culminating in a razor sharp hand-honed edge. Continuously curved from the heel to the needle-sharp tip, the blade cuts and shears through tough and fibrous material with ease and makes short work of tasks that would challenge many of the folding knives on the market today.

Its American G10 handle is a wonder of ergonomic design. Allowing a full and secure four-finger grip. It is wonderfully secure in hand and will not roll or twist with use. The grip enhancing G10 and handle holes further aid traction in a wide range of grips, working equally well tip up, down in an "ice pick" grip or even held like a push dagger!

Incredibly thin and flat, with an ambidextrous pocket clip designed for deep carry, even the largest of the Hold Out series is easily concealed in a pocket, clipped into a waistband or tucked into a boot. The blade and handle geometry and the positioning of the Tri-Ad lock in the Hold Outs came together perfectly. Working together to create a knife whose strength versus weight ratio stunned even our own research and development team!

We believe that the Hold Out may well represent the future of multi-functional, high performance every day carry knives.

Cons: None
Great knife
This knife is a beast. The serrations help slash through light brush like a hot knife through butter. It locks up as if it were a fixed blade. I own other cold steel knives and like them all, it lives up to their standard of making excellent cutting tools. To top it off I also bought this knife when it was on sale for much less than the price is now. I will always tell people knife center is the best place to buy knives online by far.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
This knife is awesome. Blade is crazy sharp. Handle feels great in your hands. It is easy to open and close. Over all this knife is very well made. Now this is a big knife. The reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is; it is so big that for a E.D.C. You will have a hard time finding pockets deep enough to carry it. But that is not the knifes fault;) the 3" or 4" would be better for E.D.C. I would buy this knife again.
