The handle is plastic...an inexpensive fiberglass reinforced polymer that is very rigid.
The blade steel is 4116...which is pretty similar to the steel that Victorinox uses in their venerable Swiss Army Knife (1.4110) and I don't really hear any complaints about the blade steel on those.
Yes this is a cheap (but high value) knife. You will actually need to sharpen it after using it. If a task like that is beneath you then I'm sorry. I paid $5 for mine and I couldn't be happier with it. Like I said, the handle is rigid. The lockup is tight and safe. It takes a little bit of practice to unlock the knife and close it but I'm very happy with how it "ratchets" closed instead of just swinging closed on any fingers left in the way. I used it the other day to prepare a whole meal which entailed processing down a large cut of beef into steaks and vegetable processing...it worked great. The blade is pretty long for a pocket knife and that makes it a pretty good food knife in my book (along with the extreme corrosive resistance of the steel). All in all this knife is quickly sharpened, a very usable size and super inexpensive. There isn't really anything to complain about
I bought a second one and noticed that it felt rough in my hand, and on my fingers. Also, opening it and closing it felt rougher.
When I got both the older and the new one together, I noticed the difference. The spine/lock/back steel piece is not finished on the new one, it is rough and has sharp corners - just cut and bent into shape. On the old one is is nicely rounded and polished. Same story for the sprocket/lock part of the blade. The blade itself shows somewhat less/rougher processing/polishing.
Still and OK knife for the price, but not a comfortable one to use anymore. Won't be buying a third one if need arises.
Locking is solid, as all Cold Steel Knives go through rigorous impact and weight testing. Even after pulling back on the leaf spring lock to loosen it, it still is secure, though I Imagine one could overdo it. Deployment is slow to fast, depending on particular practice. One can pinch the blade with thumb and middle finger to push the blade past the first notch, and then rotate it open with an exaggerated thumb slide. This is not quick or reliable enough, honestly, and even harder on the smaller Kudu than on the Eland, with less blade real estate. The lock is hard to disengage if you're not used to it, but a piece of cake for it's owner. Everyone I hand it to usually hands it back to me open, which I then close with (two handed) ease.
Handle is slick but large, and with the ring provides plenty of traction for working tasks, but is only serviceable for defensive tasks, with it's slight curve. No lanyard hole, or even pocket clips. Traditional "ready" carry I hear is by the ring and its hook, with the ring hanging towards the front of your pocket. To deploy, loop pointer finger in ring, pull out knife, and you are ready for the previously discussed pinch deployment. Once again, works well with practice, and doesn't even look like a knife in pocket, just the ring, but it can fall into the pocket over time, and runs the risk of falling out while sitting. Pocket clips are more money too though.
You know why you're buying this knife. Because it's cheap, rough-n-ready, surprisingly quality, and satisfies your knife need.
