This “classy tactical” folder is a beast in unicorn’s clothing. The 4-inch clip-point blade is made from charming rosepatterned DSC Damascus Steel, and it shaved through our cardboard test material with tremendous speed and accuracy. As a perfect yin to the blade’s yang, the handle is made of a sleek G-10/ carbon-fiber laminate that’s comfortable in forward or reverse grip. This upscale specimen is made in Italy.
Remarkable cutting and stabbing powers.
Innovative HTR opening mechanism is an angled thumbramp that lets you open the blade quickly and safely. Incredibly well built, strong, and durable.
We’ve noticed that most of Cold Steel’s new lock-back knives have a grittiness when pushing down on the rocker bar to unlock them; the Night Force is no exception.
