Andrew Demko is one of the most respected custom knife makers in the industry. As a lifelong Martial Artist (a 5th Degree Black Belt in Aikido) Andrew shares many of the same interests as Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson, and together they have collaborated to design some of the most popular knives.
Bringing together all of the finest elements of Andrew's design genius, the 4-MAX was developed with one goal in mind, to deliver the maximum strength and highest performance within a 4" blade limit. This over-built beast is without a doubt the strongest knife Cold Steel has ever produced.
Bridging the gap between production knives and expensive custom offerings, the 4-MAX is made from the finest materials available. The 4-MAX's extra thick, extra wide, drop point blade is made from CPM20cv steel - offering a near perfect balance between durability and edge holding performance. Sharpened to a razor edge and then two-tone satin polished, it's as good looking as it is effective! The 4-MAX's matte finished tumbled titanium liners and back spacers contrast beautifully with the Desert Tan 3-D CNC machined and bead blasted American G10 and provide an even greater degree of strength to this already immensely tough knife.
Despite its highly collectible appeal, the 4-MAX is no mere "safe queen". It is not an "art knife" to be displayed in a glass case - it is built to work, and work hard! Unashamedly big, bold and beastly - the 4-MAX is a real heavyweight. Sure to last a lifetime of hard use - and more!
