Preferably AUS-8 steel. I like the Cold Steel Safe Maker 2 but it is a little too big and too pricy. If you know of anything more affordable but still good quality please let me know. Thanks.

Try the Kabar TDI, it works like a push dagger but is not as illegal in most places.

Ever think about doing a grinder job on one of the gerber push knife skinners then just doing up a custom sheath for them?

I own both the Cold Steel safe-keeper11 and the Larger Honshu w/ 4in. blade and the Honshu is Better made...and half the price. Do you know the Safe-Maker are FLAT on the reverse side? That's a deal Breaker for me at Any price. Merry Christmas, Dave

The safe maker II has a specialty grind. The obverse side is concave, not flat like a chisel grind.

It probably makes little difference in performance but I hate the flat on 1 side thing too, also hate that it's really not described/disclosed at all. Anyone know if the Honshu is the same way or is it ground the same way on both sides? At such a low price I would imagine they would cut a lot of corners.

I've tried justifying a push dagger, but I just can't. Pretty much everywhere that they are legal, I can pack a gun. If I ever do end up getting one, I think I'll go with the Safe Maker 2. The flat/hollow back side of the Keeper series drives me nuts. I have a Black Jack Blackmoore Dirk with that kind of grind and I can't stand it. Yes, it's mostly just for poking holes in people, but I still don't like it.

The Honshus are ground on both sides. They don't have the concave back like the CS ones.
