I noticed that many people who never had CS product hate on CS. And I really wonder why? There are also people who either mention videos, or marketing... But, my personal experience with Cold Steel is that Cold Steel offers incredible quality for affordable price, arguably best price/performance ratios you can get. And there are people out there saying the same. I haven't tried more expensive CS products, but I can bet that they offer incredible performance. Love or hate CS - everyone in knife community knows about CS. Cold Steel is a big name in this game, and they have proven themself over the years. And even many haters admit that Cold Steel makes damn good knives. Also, Cold Steel is one of the brands even non-knife people know about. What's your opinion about it?
