AUS10A Blade

We have never been afraid to break with convention. That's why, when everyone else in our industry made the smallest, flimsiest, dainty little knives that they could, we released a series of blades that could only be described as one thing - pocket swords! The Cold Steel Espada was inspired by the classical Navaja knives of Spain, but was utterly modern in both appearance and materials. These mega-folders took the market by storm! A design collaboration between custom knife maker Andrew Demko and Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson, our Espadas are available in two sizes to suit both the bold and the boldest of individuals! Despite their imposing size, our Espada are expertly designed to fit comfortably and discreetly in your pocket. You'll soon forget that you are carrying such a large and impressive blade. Equipped with the patented Demko Thumb Plate, the Extra Large Espadas can be snagged on your pocket, opening the knife as you draw it - and opening in the blink of an eye! Our popular Espada series is also available in a slim-line, tactical blackout edition. Featuring a hard-wearing stonewashed blade and matte black G-10 handle scales.

"I also have the more expensive aluminum framed original version of the Espada XL purchased many years ago and in comparison the G10 version has a few advantages like the balance point is just a bit more on the blade side as the blade's primary bevel is flat ground rather than a shallow hollow ground, the thickness of the frame is a little less making it even flatter in pocket or inside the waist ban .... Although, this is a " HUGE " folder, that I would only EDC carry if I was doing some wilderness camping. The finish is a nice stone wash, and the blade came hair popping sharp. Having seen the aluminium version being reviewed by an Ex-US-Military Youtuber do some really hard testing including batonning, it survived without damage and without the lock becoming loose. Note this reviewer was in Afghanistan and he had the aluminium Espada XL for many years before doing his Youtube testing, so the lock and the blade survived many years of hard use even before the Youtube video reviews he did. The G10 version should be as robust In my opinion. Basically it's almost as good as a fixed bladed Bowie if hard use is not pushed to extremes of actual abuse."
