Cold Steel Inc. was founded in 1980 with the goal of producing the strongest, sharpest knives in the industry. This mission produced innovations which have since been adopted by nearly every other knife producer in the U.S., including Kraton handles, tanto blade styles, and new blade steels. Cold Steel’s weapons have also gained some popularity in Hollywood. Fans of the brand will recognize their weapons in television shows and films like The Walking Dead, The Expendables, and The Chronicles of Riddick—just to name a few.
