Most of the products that I get to review are for women. A few weeks ago, I was glad to receive a product that I can pass on to hubby, a kudu knife from Swords of the East.
The Cold Steel Kudu is an adaption of South Africa’s ring-lock folder knife. It is about 5 3/4″ long when closed, weighs 2.4 ounces, is 2mm thick, and with an overall length of 10 inches. It has a 4 1/4″ Krupp 4116 stainless steel flat ground blade and a 43% glass reinforced Zytel handle with an inlay design that looks like kudu horn and wood-grain texture.
Unlike other folders that you can flip open easily, the kudu comes with a locking mechanism. It is imperative that one reads the accompanying instruction on how to close the knife first because it can be a little bit tricky. Honestly, I had the scare of my life when I pushed too far while closing the knife with my fingers still grasping the handle. I do not intend to post a review with a grim picture of my fingers alongside the knife (LOL).
This kudu knife can be used as a work knife or utility knife. If hubby will not accept it (although I doubt it), I might use this knife in the kitchen.
I received the product mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
