Cold Steel 62MB Large Espada - CPM S35VN Blade - Black G-10 Scales w/Aluminum Bolster & Frame
Cold Steel has never been afraid to break with convention when it comes to the knives they offer. That’s why, when other manufacturers are building the smallest/lightest knives possible, Cold Steel bucks the trend and releases folders that could only be described as one thing - pocket swords!
Cold Steel's Espada series was inspired by the classical Navaja knives of Spain, but given a modern improvement in both appearance and materials. A design collaboration between custom knife maker Andrew Demko and Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson, the Espadas are available in two sizes to suit both the bold and the boldest of individuals! Despite their imposing size, each Espada is expertly designed to fit comfortably and discreetly in your pocket, or inside the waistband. You’ll soon forget that you are carrying such a large and impressive blade. Equipped with the patented Demko Thumb Plate, the Large and Extra Large Espada's can be snagged on your pocket, opening the knife as you draw it - and opening in the blink of an eye! The Espada’s beautiful blades are made from premium American S35VN Alloy Steel - chosen for its ability to not only take a super-fine cutting edge, but to hold it for an exceptionally long time.They also feature expertly polished G-10 scales and mirror polished 7075 Aluminum bolsters and frame.
Each Espada is equipped with Cold Steel's patented Tri-Ad locking mechanism, which is proven to have amazing shock resistance and strength. In Cold Steel's notoriously brutal product testing, the XL Espada was not only capable of holding 600lbs of free hanging weight, but we even used it to support a hanging engine block!
