    Just started carrying this "like new" black Rit dyed Cold Steel AD-15 that I recently purchased off of the Exchange.

    Was interested in the knife before because of its unique lock design and skeletonized appearance but absolutely HATED the puke green color on the scales of the OEM version. Don't normally like to buy any modified knives but jumped on this when I saw it was available. This is the way it "should" have looked to begin with IMO. It would look even better w/a gray or silver lockbar but the matte pale green finish of the lockbar (that was intended to blend in colorwise w/the puke green G10) still looks ok.

    Apart from the lock design, the AD15 is actually very similar in size to the Code 4 that I already owned. However, the Code 4 is cheaper (1/2 the price of the AD15), thinner, lighter and uses CTS-XHP steel (which is arguably better than S35VN). The AD15 feels very good in my hand but the thicker handle is a very noticeable presence in my pocket; not like the Code 4 (and the LionSteel SR1 that I just put away), which just disappears in my pocket. Other than that, I have no complaints about the AD15 and I plan to keep it, but I don't think I'll be carrying it very much. I'd rather carry the Code 4 instead.

    Not a lot of use on it yet, just received it last night. Initial thoughts are that I like it. Definitely a keeper.

    After handling it, do you think it would be better with a lanyard hole delete?

    I actually think it is a light use striking device. The only problem I have with the pommel is that it is not chamfered and it digs into your palm when opening and closing the knife. I will try and bash it around a little this week to see if it bends or deforms at all. Other than that I don’t see a reason to delete it. With the deep carry clip it leaves a little something to grab on to.

    It’s a Black Ice finish. In my pic it seems to have a gold tint, but I think that’s a bit deceiving because of the light reflection it was picking up and a image filter that was applied. All that said, it is one of my favorite finishes.
