They're different knives, the cold steel is mainly for "tacticool" while the WR is for 99% everything else. It's got a pretty acute tip and can be tacticool too if needed.
I think you'll find the craftsmanship and material to be a few echelons above cold steels that will justify spending the extra money.
Kittery Taping Pest has WR knives, and they're the only company I know that let's you use coupons on their expensive knives. I got my WRs there with their Tuesday coupon that was 25% off, great deal. Just google for the coupon, it changes sometimes but almost always public.
I already purchased the backpacker from Dull Knife Terminator which is an authorized online store and EBAY retailer.Definitely look at their other lineups as well, they're all good stuff. If I see the coupon go up for a week I'll try to remember to post it here.
I have 3 cold steels and they're...okay. I honestly dont carry any of them but they make good beater knives around the house.
Have fun shopping!
You got a damn good camera lol. I'm jealous.There you go bud. Mine's killed mostly fruit (alot of fruit), a few snickers bars (when you really need that calories) and 2 hotdogs. Stonewash hides everything, looks like the day I bought it after cleaning with alcohol pad.
Did I talk about how thin the sheath is? Holy moly.
