    it looks like the drop forged hunters are cheaper this year maybe ill get one, and 150 for the sr1 sounds good to me...

    The SR1 has a 4.5mm S35VN blade, and with steel lined G10 scales it will probably be just about as tuff as the 4-Max. It'll probably be the toughest folder on the planet under $200! Hot damn, the more I think about it and the Frenzy II the more I can't wait!

    Well Cold Steel fans, I have strayed in my purchases lately, but then I am very close to having all of CS's folders. These new releases excite me - I'm most likely in for in for the SR-1, Frenzy, Immortal, Pro-Lite Sport, Grik, Khan, Goldeneye, & maybe the Night Force if not too costly. Am I missing something with the "Working Man"? It's 1/8" shorter than a regular Pro Lite, but has colored handles?

    (FYI - my straying to other brands have been some excellent recent deals on Brous and Hogue knives.)

    Even the Pro-Lites are getting colored handles in the new lineup, so I don't get the point of the Working Man at all. It's just a very, very slightly shorter Pro-Lite.

    Stonewashed Recons like the Voyagers would be :thumbup: :thumbup:
    I got a Swift in satin Because I didn't like the coating on the Swift II at all. Recons 1 would look so nice uncoated. Give us some options CS!

    Tell me about it, i've been trying to push the satin/stonewash recon series idea forever, never happens, CS just aren't keen. I really like that swift mate, bad luck for me tho that it's assisted and i can't get one here in the nanny land of Oz.

    Count me in for a Khan, a Dark Earth Lawman and some colored Pro Lites and Tuff Lites. All in all, I would say I'm pretty stoked.

    The more I look at the Immortal the more I realize that I must have one.

    I went with knifecenter.com on the pre-order for the broken skull and over paid by about $8, they're charging $143.95 for the Frenzy. I'll wait this time (even though it will be really hard to do) as knifecenters prices always run high. Yeah it's only $10 or $12 but that cash will go towards another Cold Steel, seems reasonable to me;)

    No ETA announced yet, and probably won't be for quite sometime. Knifecenter doesn't mean anything, they already have ALL of them on pre-order. Typically, they put up the pre-orders as soon as the lineup and MSRP is released, has nothing to do with when they actually will be out.

    Yeah, this is one of the reasons I have never and will never pre-order with Knifecenter. They're good folks, but have definitely had pre-orders on things that ended up not existing.

    Cold Steel NEVER ships all their new stuff at once. Some of it might be shipping in Feb, but no way all of it will be. You may get a few in Feb, a few in March, and come December you'lll finally be getting the last of the lineup.

    Ill go for a frenzy and a working man....the rest i dont feel. especially those bright colours turn me off....maybe my kids will like them
    dont care for the spyderco look alike's and the cheaper machete's are way to thin

    did saw a soldiers fixed blade old style ( like 1800) that i realy liked. so thats on the list.

    compared to the new knives in 2015 im less exited this year
