Cold Steel Counter Point 1 Folding Knife Japanese AUS10A Alloy Steel
We spent years exploring high-end boot knives, and now we’ve applied that knowledge to a folding knife – the Cold Steel Counter Point. The Counter Point is available in three blade sizes - 3", 4" and 6". Their stiletto-inspired spear point blades have a distinctively pronounced false edge and a lustrous satin finish, combining to make a blade that not only looks great, but delivers a show stopping performance! Made from Japanese AUS10A Steel, the Counter Point is highly corrosion and stain resistant and takes a very sharp and durable edge. The Counter Points handle is made from Griv-Ex and reinforced with heat treated aluminum liners, making it not only very strong, but comfortable and secure in almost any grip imaginable. For added strength and safety, we equipped the Counter Point with our famous Tri-Ad locking mechanism, proven again and again to be incredibly strong and shock resistant.

Japanese AUS 10A steel could be referred to as the “big brother” of AUS 8A; the latter of which we’ve been using in Cold Steel products for over three decades. AUS 10A is a high-performance stainless alloy steel boasting all the properties of AUS 8A and then some! It’s an excellent steel for working knives - tough, corrosion-resistant, easy to re-sharpen, and is known for better edge retention than AUS 8A, due to its higher carbon content.
