Product Description

Black as a moonless night, silent as the grave. these are the qualities that make up our new lightweight Nightshade series. Most are detailed reproductions of existing Cold Steel favorites and some are new designs representing the newest trends in high-tech, covert construction. Made from Griv-Ex the latest in fiberglass reinforced plastic, and stronger than even the super tough Zy-Ex we have used in earlier models they are UV and heat stabilized, making them impervious to the elements. One of the most unique features of these knives is their handles. They are made from deeply checkered Kray-Ex that has been molded directly to the blade tangs. The use of Kray-Ex in knife handles is a Cold Steel innovation that dates back to the early 1980's. It has been readily copied by most of our competitors because it offers a superior, slightly tacky gripping surface that is unaffected by heat, cold, or moisture. It never rusts, warps, cracks or splits even in the most extreme environments.

Exactly what I expected. A plastic/polymer blend knife self defense last resort knife. This was not designed to cut through soda cans, and thick rope. This was designed as a self defense weapon, this is very obvious when holding it in your hand. Do not expect to be able to stab through body armor, or even someone who was wearing a thick motorcycle jacket(i wouldnt bet my life on it). It is designed to inflict severe wounds on the softer areas of the body of someone, or something. Its one sided, with cerrades that are relatively sharp(for plastic),and given enough force and speed could cause a severe gash/flesh wound, however this particular nightshade blade was designed for stabbing more so. And that is where its sharp, the tip is near needle sharp, and would have no problems whatsoever going through someones t shirt, polo, or against a rabbid animal(thats not a boar or bear), it would cause a life threatening injury.

The grip is firm, and provides quite a good feel for the blade, and could be used a variety of ways. The blade itself is rather strong(if you try to bend it in the same direction its meant to cut, this thing will not flex period.), and has little flex up until the last inch of it, and unless you use it wrong, shouldn't break. The tip would probably break relatively easy, but thats fixable with sandpaper, and again this knife is designed for cutting soft things, not bone. The knife isnt balanced, but is light, and has enough weight in the grip to feel comfortable.

Do not give this knife bad reviews because you thought it was something else. Before blaming someone for your mistake, research the item your planning on buying a little next time.

Always keep it simple. These are not knives made for cutting string or whittling wood. They have one purpose and one purpose only, the preservation of yourself and your family. These are not plastic toys, just give yourself a little poke with the pointy end and you will discover why. Definitely keep these "stickers" out of the reach of children and incapacitated adults. Buy extras, they make great little gifts....Lynn Stubblefield, Nashville, TN

This device is made for personal defense, as such it excells. If you want a "knife", search for the Cold Steel Braveheart. Same thing, non-serrated in steel. Both products are good values and can both be effectively deployed.

What it is would be a polymer dirk. It's designed and intended for stabbing -- humans. It's not a letter opener, not a box cutter, not a whittler, not a utility knife. Cold Steel is clear in its description, it's a polymer/fiberglass reinforced dirk for self-defense, for hiding around the house, for secreting in places where you don't want to worry about rust and freezing temperatures.

Mine came packaged with the point protected by a cardboard end tab. The Skean Dhu is a direct copy of the Cold Steel Braveheart -- which is AUS 8A Stainles, Kraton grip. In stainless, the blade config works. In Grivory, I can see where the point would be fragile. Video on ColdSteel.com shows this knife penetrating all sorts of stuff -- leather, cardboard, and slashing too, without any breakage. I bought both knives thinking the Skean Dhu might fit in the Braveheart sheath. It does not fit -- blade is a bit thick for that. The Skean Dhu is "Grivory" with a Kraton grip. Molding is seamless, but it is two materials, Grivory and Kraton.

I don't care for the ring, which is not pictured in any of the descriptions. I'm removing the ring and maybe adding a lanyard.

It's a stabber and slasher -- BACKUP KNIFE, not a primary defense. I confess to having bought it because it will pass through metal detectors -- and let me add the caveat here that doing so will expose you (or me) to Federal Prosecution, possibly charges as a "terrorist." I'm able to have fantasies without acting them out.

We're making a wet molded sheath, two layers of Latigo stitched together, simple flat sheath. No complicating clips, no lash points. Just an "envelope" to keep the point covered.

$10.00 -- The Braveheart in stainless at about $50 is perfection for a boot knife. The Skean Dhu is what it is, a last-resort stabber, slasher. Worth $10 if you use it one time.

The knife is light (being a mix of plastic and ceramic), comfortable to hold, weather resistant and sharp. It appears to be very good for its intended use, which is a defensive blade that you can store nearly anywhere. I'm guessing that water, or the sweat and oil of your skin won't affect it at all so it should be handy for a while. That being said, it IS a plastic knife and isn't really suitable for anything else. It cuts well, but doing a practice jab at cardboard was enough to break off the very tip of it and it doesn't look like it will keep an edge very long with constant use. As long as you intend this for emergencies only, and not for utility, I would recommend this product.

I think that this knife is a must have! I bought 3 of them and have been very satisfied with the performance. I abused one of them by using it to stab and cut pieces of meat. The serrated portion could definitely do some damage. The greatest part with these knives is that there is no metal at all once you take the ring off that it comes with. You can carry it concealed when having to go through metal detectors. I would recommend this one for any body that wants to make sure that if you need to leave your knife at the door of a government building then you can still carry this one undetected.
