yesss!
the cold steel push daggers are top notch products.
btw, fyi on that Total Recall" push dag.
there was a United Cutlery tie-in with that.

dunno if a CS push dag was ever used in the movie production prop though.

I had one of those United Cutlery "Total Recall" push-daggers too.  I forget what the deal was, but United developed one for the movie, but the CS one was used in the movie instead.  Think there was a blurb about it on United's website at one time.

Thanks.  I needed this.  Had no ID there was a safekeeper, I've been looking for the "old" safemaker all this time.

Thanks for the great post! It gave me the info I needed for a purchase. I really dislike the flat blade style. I have a Counter Tac 1 and it feels like half a knife.... Great post....I hope they do away with the  "chisel-ground" blade style....Thanks again

I love push daggers ... in the grand scheme they are only 2nd to Kukris. U.C. makes crap dont buy unless you want to "test &evaluate" those knock-offs. I bought (3) 12CS for a reason. Full Tang FTW!!!!!! Best daggers in my collection IMO.

Almost ten years ago on E-bay, I saw a very, very rare Urban Skinner. The grip was Kraton or something very similar to Kraton but it was not checkered. But the most interesting thing about the Skinner in question was the fact that it had the cutout in the blade, but it was chisel-ground. How do you love that? I wish I had it!

Another push knife was the Urban Pal. The original one was chisel-ground and basically a very small version of the Skinner but without the cutout in the blade and cushioned grip.

Here is a small gallery of my collection, most of which I had to sell off during some hard times about eight years ago. Quite a few really terrific Cold Steel pieces, some old H.G. Long British S.O.E. / American O.S.S. reproductions and more. You can see it by clicking [URL=http://www.donrearic.com/exoticknivesgallery.html]here.[/url]


Here is another "article" from my website which has some old CS stuff in it: [URL=http://www.donrearic.com/covertweapons.html]Click here.[/url]

Enjoy and keep doing your own research, you did well!

I'm sorry I am a bit unfamiliar with the particular coding of this forum's software, this is the article from my website that I messed up the coding on in the post above.

Don't know why. I had some problems in the Sjambok article I wrote that I have never went back and done anything with but in the two links I just provided, I had to refresh the page and that was it. If THIS POS computer can do it and someone else's can't. OH MY GOD. 8-)

I would be stocking up on all of these if I could carry them legally...or else I would be left to decide whether I want to "break the law" everyday by wanting to open carry a push-blade even if it isn't double edge.

CA laws on balisongs/pushblades are dud.



Hahaha ask the canucks on this board what they think of that



On another note I wonder what one in VG1 san mai would be like

Hey everyone ,

Thanks. If you don't mind the chisel-ground blade, I think the SM it is a good option. I really like that they extended the Kraton down the neck to be more Cozy. I also think the blade shape may be a bit better for stabbing than the others, as it stays narrow longer than the others.

Thanks
Marcus Robinson

I have a few CS push knives this pattern is by far my favorite.  Thanks JLauffer for taking the time to put this thread to together.

I have the old Terminator but, honestly, I thought the patterning in the sheath was done by a kid with a Tandy Leather stamping tool. I kind of ticked me off to think a nice plain leather sheath would be treated like that. The stamping was trailing off here and there, like whoever did it couldn't follow the edge evenly. The knife itself though is great. Makes a great boot knife.

What kind of value does the Urban Skinner have.  I bought one in 1988 and carried it while on the force.  never had to use it, but always nice to know it was there.

Blade steel: Originally AUS8A, and then in 2001 they switched to bead-blasted 420 Sub Zero Quench. In 2007 they were 4116 Krupp, and then switched back to AUS8A in 2010. Picked up another Safekeeper II. Only has Taiwan on the blade and it is a dull finish, thinking the bead-blasted 420 Steel and plain sheath. Second one has a bright blade and says made in Taiwan with Secur-Ex on the sheath. So bead blasted one post 2001 and bright blade AUS8 pre 2001, right?

Yes, bead-blasted one would be 2001-2005.  If the bright one is marked Taiwan, it would be 2010 or newer.  Bright finish and Japan marking would be pre-2001.
