    I think with Cold Steel it depends on the purpose and construction. Their steel is decent but I know two people who got the Cold Steel Kukri Machete for camp work/Bushcraft. After use chopping/batoning the handles came loose. The tang apparently doesn't consistently fit tightly in the handle, which is held on basically with just epoxy. They didn't fall off but they both started rattling.

    Besides, you have a bunch of miniature screwdrivers you can use for stabbing purposes.

    I have oh-so-many miniature screwdrivers. Passels of them.

    Including some you can hang on your keychain or stick into your wallet. Not that I would ever enable this particular addiction. :angelic:

    Cold steel definitely does some products better than they do others. Folders, small to moderate size fixed blades and swords are what they do best. My ti-lite folder I've had for 7 years and my bastard sword for 5, haven't failed me yet. It's always good to research the individual product model before purchasing.
