Excellent all rounder, very tough design and strong point. Buying a used knife prevents the bad feeling of mistreating a perfect knife. Since hardly any one can outwear a knife there a few second hand knives that don't have a lot of use left in them.

Good score dude! You can strip all the rest of that blade coating to make it look uniform. Not sure why they put the coating on VG1 stainless.

Yes I wondered that too.  The VG-1 San Mai III SRKs never had coating, so not sure why they'd put it on the full-VG-1's???

I got a great deal on a Aus-8 version of a SRK a little while ago (AUD$66, which is around 1/2 price here in Australia). I love it, though haven't used it a lot. I bought mine particialy because of the price and because of this vid

I, personally, think the SRK is the best all-around fixed-blade you can buy.  Which is why I purchased mine in Carbon V in 1996 - my first Cold Steel purchase.  It has been with me all over the country and has been my go-to on deployments, field trips, hikes, camping outings, etc.  Cannot for the life of me figure out why anyone would bash a CS SRK of any variety.

I think some people just have to hate on something. 
Survival Lily loves her SRK and recommends them wholeheartedly. She even destroyed a Fallkniven S1 and stated she had done worse to her SRK and it hadn't failed.

"I think some people just have to hate on something." Especially nowadays with all of the social media out there.
