  • Information
The Cold Steel Talwar Folding Tactical Knife has a blade that is designed after a famous Indo-Persian sword design called the Talwar. That particular sword was incredibly feared because of its broad, curved blade that was so effective at removing limbs from opposing forces. The Cold Steel Talwar Folder utilizes that same design, just shrunk down into a folding knife. The Talwar folder features a continuously curved cutting edge along the entire length of its impressive 2" wide blade. By utilizing Japanese AUS 8A stainless steel, the Talwar has a blade that can stand up to serious use and still take and keep an extremely sharp edge. The massive blade is nothing short of a wonder, its combination of size, shape, and edge make this knife excel at slicing, shearing, and penetrating. Available in two lengths, a beastly 5.5" or a more carry friendly 4" the Talwar is perfect for uniformed personnel who will subject their knife to hard use, or the prepared citizen who prefers a more substantial blade. Additionally, the Talwar is available with either a plain edge or a fully serrated edge. Knowing that there are many places in these United States that do not allow for concealed firearm carry, a fully serrated Talwar is a very effective and concealable self-defense tool.

To allow users to hang on to this impressive blade, Cold Steel mated it to an ergonomic handle made from American G-10. The handle is contoured and features a distinct pistol grip styling that really locks into the users hand when held either in forward or reverse grips. Additionally, jimping along the grip allows for increased thumb purchase. The G-10 handles are textured for a sure grip, even with wet hands but aren't abrasive and won't tear up your pocket. Cold Steel uses their premier Tri-Ad Lock which is renowned for its incredible strength.

To top it all off, the Cold Steel Talwar Tactical Folder features Andrew Demko's ambidextrous thumb plate opening system which allows users to snag the plate on their pocket during the draw stroke and deploy the blade as the knife is removed from the pocket. Faster than any auto or spring assised opener, the blade is locked open as you "settle" it in your hand.
