Cold Steel SRK San Mai III – Best Hunting Knives
Cold Steel strikes again with the Cold Steel SRK San Mai III, a small light 6 inch knife that’s pretty light to the touch, yet still has the durability of knives twice its weight. Measuring at 10 ¾ inches the blade is solidly made of VG-1 san Mai III and only weighs 8.2 ounces. The knife is smallish in areas, but the Kraton handle is one of the more comfortable to wield. Unfortunately the quality stops at the knife, as the sheath which is made of the typical Cold Steel brand polymer.
The knife itself is moderately priced and surprisingly light and strong, which is something to keep in mind since the sheath is a bit of a letdown and dulls it over time. It doesn’t seem to contour the knife very well, and nylon strap attached will get a lot of use. Cold Steel does a good job in impressing with the actual survival knife product, but falls short in other areas. Whether a lackluster sheath will deter users from purchasing this light and wonderful knife is going to be the question.
