i have used various cold steel products since the 80s & found most to be good value for the money spent. as with any large producer some duds appeared thru the years but the basic track record was very decent. i believe old lynn started the tanto craze & also got big bowies going with his trailmaster.HiPower

I really want a Twistmaster but I don't know why.

trey the reason you want a twistmaster is because they are like Opinel's but on STEROIDS!I have 2,one of them i picked up at SMKW in Seveirville.It came from the Camillus factory buyout.It wasn't ever finished,it is missing the lock ring and never had an edge put on it,till now.I think it cost me $7.00 a few years ago.My cousin used the other to skin an elk,he said it did an awesome job and it has a nice blood patina on it now.I keep an eye out for them on ebay but they usually bring more than i want to give for one.

Agree with Mitch and HiPower - can get some good and interesting steel for the money. Recently picked up the following...

Oooh! I like 'em predecessor.

The only one I have in hand is The Spike neck knife. Picked it up several years ago. Very sharp.

I have a USA made Twistmaster in transit. I've wanted one for some time and I'm eager to see what I've bought.

I only own one Cold Steel product and it's the Kobun.

After looking for in inexpensive fixed blade, I couldn't find anything that came near it for the money. I think it's a little heavy for a boot knife as Cold Steel advertises, but it's a nice general purpose cutter.

The blade (AUS8) came out of the box as sharp as any knife I've ever owned. As is my habit, I gave it a few swipes on my strop and it's now literally sharp enough to shave with.

I'm thinking of giving one of their smaller folders a try.

::ds:: Yay for ColdSteel! I've got a Master Hunter that has dressed more than a few deer with ease and has not been resharpened yet. I really like my Recon Tanto even though I haven't done any recon with it. My daily carry is a big ol' Voyager XL with the clip blade. It's like a folding bowie knife, Sharp and functional too.

I picked up this one about 6 months ago. I put it on Ebay and they cancelled the bid said it was against ebay rules.
