    The old GI Tanto ad copy.

    This is a well known story.

    Another vote for a 5max.

    I would also purchase a 3.5max.

    My 4max (the first and so far only CS) wants friends.

    I've been so tempted to get a 4 max for 299 dollars but would like 3.5 max.

    Full-thickness (4mm) blades on the smaller knives.

    Yes I am aware of Demko's models, I just unfortunately am not in the position to purchase them at the moment. Given the chance I would jump on Cold Steel variants, however.

    Please bring back that old Cold Steel logo! The new one looks so Plain Jane and looks puny on a badass knife like the SRK or Trail Master![​IMG]

    An e-z open (for the clip point blade only...maybe a liner lock) stockman, with modern blade materials, G10 scales, and a simple but trustworthy pocket clip

    Dare to dream

    I think a shortened version of the broken skull would be sweet. It's a great blade profile and handle that's nice carrying for such a big blade but make it smaller and it becomes a great EDC option for those unable or unwilling to carry a 4" blade around. It would would directly compete with a delica and endura for relative use but better ergos (for me), and better blade steel at a similar price point. The 4" works nice for outdoors EDC but it's a bit unwieldy around a production floor or office setting. The Lawman is close but taller than needed, IMO, for EDC carry.

    Along the same lines, bring back the old plain black boxes that had that logo!

    Not a doubt in my mind that the SR1 would curb stomp the Adamas-Not only in Lock strength, but also impact/shock resistance, and prying.

    What’s crazy, is that Cold Steel was able to pair a bigger, thicker, longer blade, with an expontially stronger, longer service life lock, and still come in nearly half an ounce lighter than the Adamas.

    If they Could bring back the UWK that would be tha bomb...
    Had one years ago in my service-vest, and some douchebag borrowed it and broke it.
    The Knife had of course been discontinued at that Point, so I had to buy a Sog Tech Bowie to get something in the same lines.
    But I never like it as much as the UWK..

    I would also like the kobun without the kraton gaurd at rhe back so that it's easier to hold it in a saber grip. Although I doubt they would because it's such an old design. Still love it though.

    And I love the mini tac's integral gaurd. I'd love a mini tac xl (or large tac) with a little longer blade, like 4 inches and return with the G-10 handles.

    But actually I would appreciate it if they skipped next year because I still need to catch up with my long wishlist before any more awesome knives gets released..

    Personally, I'd like to see the double-edge machete brought back. I've got a couple, but the steel they were using back then was thinner than their current machete stock, and I think they'd really benefit from that thicker steel. They're fantastic to use, save a lot of effort, and go through brush like a chainsaw!
