The Cold Steel Hold Out II Plain Edge Straight Knife is a tactical folding knife that is a modern interpretation of the timeless Black Knife (or Skean Dhu in the original Gaelic) used by ancient Scottish warriors as a backup knife. These lightweight tactical knives are built with Cold Steel's incomparable AUS 8A Stainless Steel, and like its ancient predecessors, the Cold Steel Holdout II Knife features a thin, acutely pointed tip that's sharp as the proverbial needle. This folding tactical pocket knife will cut with ease through the most puncture resistant materials, and is remarkably resistant to breakage. The blade of the Cold Steel Hold Out 2 Knife is precisely and beautifully hollow ground before being honed by hand to a razor edge whose cutting powers will amaze you.
The Cold Steel Hold Out II Tactical Knife features a handle built of the finest G-10 laminate, with a palm-hugging profile and a thin flat cross section that resists rolling or twisting in the palm, while remaining comfortable and versatile enough to accommodate a wide variety of gripping styles. To protect your fingers from the blades, each Cold Steel Hold Out 2 Folding Knife comes with the Tri-Ad lock, proven to outperform the competition in the most brutal tests imaginable. For discreet carry and immediate access, the Cold Steel Hold Out II Knife is supplied with a polished stainless steel pocket clip and thumb studs on the blade. This arrangement allows a wide variety of carry options as well as lightning quick one-handed deployment.
