CS11HXVB: 11HXVB Hold Out I, Coyote Tan
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.

An offer you can’t refuse
You can’t go wrong. Great in every way. Light, thin, balanced, sharp, grippy, smooth deploy and (finally) a proper clip for its size. Some of CSs other clips on the XLs are ridiculously small, tight and stiff. This is just right. I’ve complained to them in the past, asked if I could buy a bigger replacement clip, only to be completely ignored. I’m sorry to say their customer service isn’t very professional But their knives are some of the best and without question the best value I’ll always buy cold steel no matter how lame their staff is

Juggernaut Folder
Despite seeing the listed dimensions, I did not imagine the actual size of this beast. It’s massive, much too massive for me to carry around. However, I keep it in my computer bag as a reliable stash sword. It’s lightweight and has air-tight lockup. It also has good bite to the grip. The sheer size and mean dagger appearance may be enough to ward off unwanted company. If not, the savage razor-sharp blade will make short work of anything, including a sudden falling oak tree if that’s your luck. While this is not an EDC or a favorite for me, if you’re into huge folders I cannot imagine them getting much better or more practical than this.

Cons: Sheath
Great Slicer
Bought this knife intending to use it for picnics, and because it's XHP steel. The blade is flat ground from spine to edge, and distal tapered from pivot to tip. Out of the box, the edge sliced photocopier paper without tearing. The G10 handle scales were too aggressive for my taste so I took knife apart and smoothened them out with 220 grit sand paper. I can open this knife with one hand but needed both hands to close it - but I don't have a problem with that. Wish it had a sheath though. Knifecenter has a great deal on it now so get one before they are gone!
