Designed for daily carry, the workhorse Engage line from Cold Steel provides hard use folding knives that are comfortable, secure, and easy to operate thanks to the innovative Atlas slide lock mechanism. Fully ambidextrous and built like a tank, the Engage is a reliable choice for EDC use. This 3″ version comes with a stonewashed black PVD coated AUS10A blade and black GFN handle scales. *Specifications subject to change*
Brand new, direct from Cold Steel.
Blade: A clip point profile AUS10A blade comes with a discreet and wear hiding black stonewashed finish and high saber grind for exceptional strength balanced with performance. A generous thumb scoop allows for added leverage in heavy use while the three-inch blade provides enough edge for most tasks with a more permissive length. The Atlas lock gives the blade fast, decisive deployment via dual thumb studs or via the lock itself riding smooth on bronze washers.
Handle: Skeletonized steel liners support contoured, smooth black glass-filled nylon (GFN) scales for a solid handle that is comfortable and secure. Grooves provide added traction while a large index guard and pommel hook deliver safety during heavy use. Exceptionally strong yet easy to operate, the Atlas lock is fidget friendly and ready for serious use.
Carries via a reversible stainless steel deep carry clip.
Japanese AUS-10A Stainless Steel: Similar to AISI 440C, AUS10 offers excellent corrosion resistance, good edge retention and easy sharpening. For AUS-10A, the “A” at the end indicates the steel has been annealed after the rolling, which does not affect the blade performance.
Atlas Lock: This patent pending slide lock offers ease of use with exceptional strength. A spring-loaded steel bar rides on pins set into the handle. The forked end of the bar slides around two pins that serve as blade and lock stops respectively. The interior prong of the fork sits between the blade stop pin and blade tang locking the knife solidly in the open position and distributing lock force over the two pins for added strength (tested to over 700 lbs!).
