Cold Steel 4-Max Scout, AUS-10A Stainless Steel, Griv-Ex Handle
Cold Steel, Incorporated was founded in 1980, a company dedicated to making the strongest, sharpest knives in the world. Over the last three decades, Cold Steel has been at the forefront of the many innovations that have helped to define the knife industry as a whole. Progressive accomplishment, including the introduction of the checked Kraton® handles, and the tanto point blade styles have gone from curiously interesting features to industry-wide hallmarks of quality and sophistication. New ground was also broken with the introduction of unique new blade steels like San Mai III® and Tri-Ad™ Lock & locking mechanism for folding knives. Tri-Ad™ Lock for example, has never been equaled by any of Cold Steel's competitors and nothing they have produced yet has been proven to outperform it. Of course Cold Steel will always look to the future, constantly striving to make the world's strongest, sharpest knives. That goal as elusive and difficult to achieve as it is, has been the same for the past thirty years.
The original 4 Max proved to be all that Cold Steel hoped for. But it was expensive and difficult to manufacture and deliver in a timely manner to meet customer demand. The 4 Max Scout is easier to produce and is a far more affordable alternative. It features an extra wide, drop point blade and stone wash finish, which is identical to the original 4 Max. It’s crafted from 5mm thick AUS 10A steel, for strength, toughness and edge holding potential. The handle’s silhouette mirrors the original. Instead of a G-10 handle the 4 Max Scout has one made of Griv-Ex™ with stainless steel liners and a Griv-Ex™ back spacer. Equipped with Andrew Demko’s groundbreaking Tri-Ad® locking mechanism the 4 Max Scout has passed every one of Cold Steel Knives grueling shock and impact tests and then gone on to hold 600 lbs. of free hanging weight with no damage!
