New for 2021: Cold Steel SRK Fixed-Blade Knives

Cold Steel SRK Fixed-Blade Knives

Cold Steel, manufacturer and innovator of purpose-built knives and blade tools for everyday carry, tactical, hunting and outdoor applications, has release two new multi-use SRK fixed blade knives. The SRK in San Mai features the legendary San Mai steel and the SRK Survival Rescue boasts SK-5 steel.

San Mai is a Cold Steel trademark knife steel that is produced in short runs and is found only on the company’s top collectible fixed-blade knives. San Mai derives its strength and superior edge performance from its three layers of stainless-steel laminate. The inner layer is a hard carbon steel that gives San Mai blades their exquisitely sharp and long-lasting edge. The outside layers are made of a lower carbon spring steel to ensure strength and to better withstand impact and lateral stresses. Combined, the San Mai steel composite offers one of the toughest, best-performing blade steels on the market today.

Cold Steel takes its San Mai steel to its most utilitarian expression in the new SRK fixed-blade knife. With its robust clip point and prominent belly, the SRK is suitable for delicate operations as well as vigorous cutting and slashing.

Backing this multi-task-capable 6-inch blade is an equally stout Kray-Ex handle. The handle’s deep checkering, single quillon finger guard, and slender profile delivers a comfortable, unobtrusive grip that also contributes to exceptional blade control. Included with the SRK is a rugged, wear- and weather-resistant Secure-Ex sheath.
