- Thumbstud deployment
- Tri-Ad Locking system
- DLC (Diamond Like Coat) blade
Designed in collaboration with famed custom knife maker Andrew Demko, the Cold Steel Espada series of knives are inspired by classical Navaja knives of Spain. The Espada knives are made to be deployed quickly thanks to the patented Demko Thumb Plate that can be snagged on your pocket, opening the blade as you draw.
Each blade is hand honed to a razor level of sharpness, then DLC coated and mated to matte black G-10 handle scales.
Known for their brutal product testing, Cold Steel tasked the Espada Knives with holding 600lbs of free hanging weight and the knives were even used to support a hanging engine block.
