COLOS­SUS 1

Recoil - - I’ll Be In My Office -

411:

As the name im­plies, the Colos­sus 1 is a mon­strous fold­ing knife that trades blade length for height, re­sult­ing in a stout pro­file. Why? Shear­ing power … and to keep it com­pli­ant in re­gions with length re­stric­tions. Colos­sus 1 takes de­sign cues from the dag knife (also called the beaver­tail knife due to its shape), which were forged in Eng­land, im­ported by Canada’s Hud­son’s Bay Com­pany, and highly sought by Na­tive Amer­i­cans and frontiersman alike dur­ing the North Amer­i­can fur trade era. Avail­able with satin pol­ish fin­ish or with a black DLC coat­ing.

PROS:

Made of pre­mium XHP steel, the blade can cut, chop, stab, and slash with au­thor­ity.

Thumb disc acts as an im­pro­vised “pocket de­ployer,” open­ing the blade as you draw from your pants pocket. Pocket clip can be ad­justed for left­ies and right­ies.

Two-tone, stip­pled G-10 han­dle of­fers trac­tion

CONS:

The han­dle’s er­gonomics work well in for­ward grip but feel off in re­verse grip.

The Colos­sus 1 can chop like a tom­a­hawk … and will feel like one when you try to cram it into your pocket.
