DESCRIPTION: Details Specifications Condition Additional Pictures. The Safe Keeper 1 is a great choice for a bug-out bag.
Also, the sleek profile and lightweight makes for a perfect E. Look no further for an excellent companion for Camping, Hiking, Backpacking, Self Defense, Tactical and Conceal Carry.
The blade , featuring a full hidden tang, is made of AUS 8A - a high carbon, low chromium stainless steel which has proven itself to be the ultimate choice between toughness and strength, edge holding and resistance to corrosion. The result is a beautiful double edged, satin finished blade. The front of the blade is marked "Safe Keeper I" and the back side of the blade is marked "COLD STEEL" with "MADE IN JAPAN".Revered Cold Steel knives like this are always treasured by collectors and a perfect gift for the person who must have one-of-each. The handle is made of textured, shock absorbing Kraton for a firm, comfortable grip. The Kraton is wrapped around a full (hidden) tang steel core. Kraton is the trade name given to a number of high performance elastomers which offer many of the properties of natural rubber, such as high traction, but with increased resistance to heat, weathering, and chemicals.
In Part From Cold Steel Cold Steel has been making knives for over a quarter century. Over the years we have continually refined our designs, discarding some features and enhancing others. Constantly striving to produce the best knives in the world. Our Safe Keeper I (Model # 12A) represents the pinnacle of our learning, experience, testing, and development.
The blade, shaft, and tang are fashioned from one solid piece of Japanese AUS 8A Stainless Steel. A textured Kraton handle encapsulates the tang for added comfort and security.
Our Safe Keeper I has the cutting and piercing potential of a larger knife, but is small enough so that it can be easily attached to tactical web gear, tucked in a waistband or boot top, or even strapped to a wrist or ankle. Designed for the 21st century, the Safe Keeper I is the ultimate knife of its kind. Just the look of this knife with its wicked blade jutting out from the fist is enough to deter almost all aggressors. And, if action is necessary, the Safe Keeper's shock absorbing Kraton handle imparts devastating blows, yet is so secure in one's hand that it's practically impossible for even a novice to be disarmed.

This Safe Keeper I displays beautifully and is in Used, but not abused, condition; Blade is shiny with a bright satin finish. I just love the size of this blade, with battle scars to prove its worth! Blade Edge & Knife Point are razor sharp!
No chips / dings to the blade edge. There is cosmetic wear (slight discoloration / very slight pitting) to the finish on both sides of the blade. These spots, when viewed, darken depending on the angle of view and also how the light shines on the area; only cosmetic, blade is perfectly functional (please when viewing pictures use the Zoom - pictures 7 thru 10, 15 thru 19). Blade is shiny with a bright satin finish. The text on both sides is clear and dark but slightly worn (please see the 5th & 6th, 11th & 20th picture).On the front of the handle, left side, there is a small & slight 3/16 wide dent (please see the 6th picture, above the red arrow). Of note , the handle, while being held in a normal grip and shaken, rattles if held loosely. When the handle is held tightly in a normal grip - as it should be - there is no rattle when the handle is shaken. Blade and Handle are rock solid - not even the slightest wobble. My best guess as to the rattle - the area inside the handle is ever so slightly bigger than the tang. When the handle is gripped, the area inside the handle tightens up - no rattle. No sheath or box with this sale. Overall, gorgeous; I really do mean a b-e-a-utiful looking and rare! , purpose built, long discontinued, Cold Steel Safe Keeper I in ready to use, razor sharp condition. A nice addition to any blade collection and it looks so very AWESOME!
