There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
it would come down to this, Cold Steel's recon 1, ZT 0550, ZT 0909, Spyderco Manix 2 or SOG Vulcan.
And I would chose American Lawman. Not all that stoked about black coated blades.
I wish Cold Steel would make all their knives in satin finish as a choice.
Like most Cold Steel knives, the lockup is insanely stiff.
By my estimation, you'd have to open and close this thing about 10,000 times before
the lock wears enough to disengage smoothly. Nope, not doing that.
I took mine apart and judiciously ground/polished contact areas and tweaked the spring
to make the lockup a lot smoother without compromising the lockup or introduce vertical blade play.
It's too bad that Cold Steel is changing over to CPM S35V from CTS XHP as I like XHP steel better.
Also, the pocket clip is crap. Slight curvature is totally unnecessary and the clip is extraordinarily stiff.
CS could probably save some money by modifying their pocket clip design and eliminating the need to include
righty and lefty pocket clips. Spyderco does pocket clips the best. They should learn from their competition.
Despite the flaws, this would be my go-to hard use EDC knife for now.
Recon 1 - tad too big
ZT 0550 - boat anchor
ZT 0909 - ball bearing pivot, not for hard use in my book, also boat anchor
SOG Vulcan - cheap nylon washers, VG10 steel not as good, could be lighter with milled out liners
Manix 2 - could be lighter with milled out liners (with exception of S110V blurple model)

Das Lawman ist robust, schneidet super gut, es ist leicht, trägt nicht auf, sieht nicht zu gefährlich aus, ist handlich, usw. Es ist für mich der perfekte EDC Folder.
