Large Luzon, Folding Knife
Lynn C. Thompson’s love of Filipino Martial Arts encouraged this collaboration with Mike Wallace on the Luzon folder. The Luzons were inspired by several balisongs in Lynn’s collection, but function as a flipper. The blades are comprised of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel expertly hardened to 57-58 Rockwell and feature sharp, strong points with just enough belly to make them equally useful for cutting and slashing. You’ll be dreaming of the Philippines once you experience the Luzon’s bamboo-inspired handles, featuring concave segments that offer countless comfortable grip options. Made of glass-filled nylon (GFN), the handles are impervious to the elements and are unlike any handle Cold Steel® has ever made before.
Handsome, budget friendly and a breeze to flip open, the Luzons are a formidable choice. Offering incomparable levels of safety, they’re equipped with a sturdy leaf-spring lock and a (patent-pending) secondary safety mechanism that, when engaged, is extremely resistant to shock and impact. Your fingers will be safe even under the worst conditions.
Available in two sizes, both feature a lanyard hole and left and right GFN pocket clips for ambidextrous carry.
8Cr13MoV Stainless Steel
Possessing very similar properties to AUS 8A, 8Cr13MoV is a reliable steel for working knives. This high carbon stainless steel has proven itself to be tough and corrosion-resistant in Cold Steel®’s own tests. Like AUS 8A, it boasts good edge holding and is easy to re-sharpen.
