In South Africa, an inexpensive ring lock folder is sold everywhere. It’s a good design, but it’s constructed from sub-standard materials, is poorly made, and is horribly overpriced. And yet, millions of these knives are sold there each year. Well, we thought we could do better, in the quality of materials, cutting performance, and in price.
The Cold Steel Kudu, takes some cues from its South African competition, but our version is vastly superior. This has a Krupp 4116 Stainless steel flat ground blade, heat treated to Rc 56-57 for better edge holding ability and ease of re-sharpening, and a thin razor sharp edge.
For safety, thoroughly tested the locking mechanism and are well satisfied it will hold the blade rigidly open until you decide to close it by pulling up on the ring attached to the back spring.
The handle of the Kudu also reflects the dedication to making an effective and affordable folder. It’s made of 43% glass reinforced Zytel. This material has proven to be extremely strong, and is stiff enough to compliment the blade and spring when locked open. Plus, the gripping surface has a wood grain texture for traction and features an attractive polished steel Kudu horn emblem for a little extra flair!
It’s ready for anything and makes a wonderful work knife, utility knife, bait knife, or hunting knife.
It can also be opened and used single handed and is a design that has stood the test of time. Once you master the opening of this knife single handed you will understand why every collection needs a ring pull knife.

This knife is not a weapon and is purely a tool. I want to be 100% clear that this item is not intended to be used and in way do I suggest that it is to be used to inflict violence, whether actual or threatened against any person or fictional creature such as, but not limited to a Zombie, Unicorn, Cracken, Medusa, Bigfoot, Alligator Man and especially native Drop Bear and Yowies.
Any images or words on the knife are for brand recognition only.
Any advertisements from the manufacturer in America, are made purely to market to the American market, they are not supported by me. This knife is a proper and useful tool to be used by hunters, campers, outdoorsmen and for collection.
Anything in the description that suggest that it is to be used to inflict violence will be removed shortly, if not already removed.
Words such as Combat, Tactical and Fighting refer to the strength of the knife only and are mentioned to confirm that this knife could be used as a tool in a military operation as a TOOL to cut ropes, dig holes, eat food with, open items and even as a last-ditch rescue tool to cut your way out of a wrecked vehicle. It is not a weapon. These words are not there to promote violence and I wanted to make it clear in what context these words are used by the manufacturers as well as my adds.
Any pictures of skulls, dragons or other animals etc on the knives are there as a way to promote peaceful use of the knife / tool and for artistic purposes only. Skulls serve as a warning to not use the knife inappropriately, similar to a skull on a poison bottle.
