RR: Cold Steel El Lobo

Apr 24, 1999
Anyone own one of these? I saw an ad in BLADE for all of the Nogales blade series and the El Lobo's the only one legal to carry where I live. I have a Desperado, which has the same blade style, but was wondering how a folder w/ the same blade holds up. I'm looking for value, edge holding and geometry, lock strength, you know, the usual things you look for in a folder. If anyone has the plain edge version that would be even more helpful. Thanks in advance for any help.
