Fishing season is here and people are out on their boats, hopefully catching some delicious fish. Have you heard of the Cold Steel Kudo Knife? I got this knife to review and it comes in very handy! It's perfect for cleaning fish. It’s ready for anything and it's a great work knife, utility knife, bait knife, or hunting knife.
The knife was created to resemble the South Africa's Kudo Knife. The knife has an ring locking mechanism and it'll hold the blade rigidly open until you decide to close it, by pulling up on the ring attached to the back spring. It has a good design and has a Krupp 4116 Stainless steel flat ground blade, heat treated to Rc 56-57 for better edge holding ability and ease of re-sharpening, and a thin razor sharp edge.
The handle of the Kudu is made of 43% glass reinforced Zytel. This material has proven to be extremely strong, and is stiff enough to compliment the blade and spring when locked open. Plus, the gripping surface has a wood grain texture for traction and features an attractive polished steel Kudu horn emblem for a little extra flair!
Details of the Kudo Knife:
- Blade: 4 1/4"
- Overall: 10"
- Thick: 2mm
- 4116 Stainless Steel Flat Ground Blade
- Handle is made of 43% Glass Reinforced Zytel
- Ring Locking Mechanism
- Weight: 2.4 oz.
