Cold Steel Espada L Large Folding Knife AUS10A Steel
Inspired by the classical Navaja knives of Spain, but utterly modern in both appearance and materials, these mega-folders became an immediate sensation!
A design collaboration between celebrated custom knife maker Andrew Demko and Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson, the Espada series are a perfect amalgam of Demko’s engineering genius and Thompson’s vast knowledge of edged weapons and tools.
Built to snap into action in a flash thanks to the patented Demko Thumb Plate, the Espadas can be snagged on your pocket, actually opening the knife as you draw it – and bringing it in to play in the blink of an eye!
The Espada's beautiful, flat ground, blades are made from AUS 10A Stainless Steel. In order to protect your fingers from this wickedly sharp blade, each Espada is equipped with the patented Tri-Ad locking mechanism, proven to be the strongest lock in the world and virtually impervious to shock – making it almost impossible for the blade to close on your hand.
In Cold Steel's notoriously brutal product testing, the XL Espada was not only capable of easily holding 600 lb of free hanging weight, but we even used it to support a hanging engine block!
This Espada series the tactical "blackout" edition, with a hard-wearing DLC coated blade and matte black American G10 handle scales.
