Lighter, Faster, and Better. That's the New model of the Cold Steel American Lawman. I rightly criticized the previous version for being too heavy and I am stoked to report this version fixes that by dispenses with the unnecessary steel liners. Weight on the redesigned CS Lawman is now 4.4 oz. Other improvements include a radiused and rounded handle, deeper finger grooves, a solid clip, and seemingly faster deployment (might just be my perception). Other already-cool features soldier on: excellent high-traction G10 handle, great thumbstud (reversible!), good quality AUS8A steel (razor sharp from box, easy to sharpen, tough), 6061 aluminum backspacer, and the proven and ultra-strong Demko Triad locking mechanism. In the compact tactical blade POU, this blade will rock. Expect long term solidity out of this lock, even after rough use. Blade shape is still the very desired clip with an adequately strong tip. Blade centering is perfect in this example as well. And I will correct the video and say it should do so as well in EDC roles as well. If it's still too big or chunky for you, you might opt for the small American Lawman at just 2.6 oz. Value is very high if you can score it around $45 (for full sized, $40 US for small Lawman). About the only downside I can detect is the broad width of the design. But other than the new Cold Steel American Lawman completes a winning re-design of some of the company's best, hard use tactical folders and it provides amazing utility for the price. //////////// Nutnfancy Likability Scale: 9 out of 10 (price considered)/////////////// Music: http://www.partnersinrhyme.com
