Like the swords of old the Espada's are not for the weak, timid, faint of heart or those desiring another spring assisted play toy. Just pick one up and you'll see what we mean! Definitely not politically correct, they are huge yet surprisingly well balanced and feature dramatically upswept clip point blades that are ideal for cutting, slashing and piercing. Made from vacuum heat-treated and sub-zero quenched Japanese 8A stainless steel and hollow ground to a thin, razor sharp edge, they will cleave through just about any obstacle or target in their path. To make your hand the real master of these awesome blades they have paired them with state of the art pistol grip handles. Strongly curved and equipped with multiple finger grooves and even a sub-hilt in the two larger models, they work perfectly in either a forward or reverse grip while offering unprecedented retention and reach through multiple grip extension options. To minimize overall weight and maximize strength and rigidity, Cold Steel has CNC machined the frames and integral bolsters of the Espada's handles from 7075 Aluminum billets. While quite costly, this material rivals even Titanium in strength and can endure years of the hardest abuse. Finally to make the handle as beautiful as it is effective and strong, they have mirror polished the dovetailed bolsters and attached glossy black G-10 handle scales using the latest high tech fasteners. Cold Steel doesn't believe any tactical folder can make a credible claim to being a pocket sword without possessing an incredibly strong and reliable lock and the Espada's are no exception. That's why they have equipped each model with their new multi-patented TRI-AD lock. Designed by Andrew Demko, the TRI-AD is unsurpassed in resisting positive pressure from the edge (cutting, slashing and chopping), negative pressure from the point (piercing, digging and chiseling), and impact pressure (whacks on the back of the spine of the blade) by diverting these forces first to its unique stop pin and then throughout the entire handle frame. At first thought, carrying a pocket sword as big and heavy as the Espada may seem impractical. However, after much experimentation, this is not the case. Even the biggest model can be carried discreetly and unobtrusively in the front pocket of most pants and when clipped to the waistband and covered by a bloused shirt or sweater they totally disappear. Then in an emergency they can be drawn and opened in a single motion by snagging the patented thumb plate on the edge of a pocket. Blade Length: 5 1/2". Blade Thickness: 4 mm. Steel: Japanese AUS 8A Stainless. Handle: Polished G-10 with Polished 7075 Aluminum Bolster and Frame. Pocket Clip: Ambidextrous Pocket/Belt Clip. Dimensions: 9"L x 3"W x 3.5"H.
