Cold Steel found a way to improve the knives in their Battle Ready Classics Series by offering them in their famous San Mai III® steel
. Made in Japan according to strict standards since the mid 1980's, San Mai III® has proven unsurpassed in strength, toughness, sharpness and ease of re-sharpening. Over the years, other "super steels" have come and gone but San Mai III® remains as the most proven high performance stainless steel in the world. The OSI is the single edged version of our OSS
. Hollow ground to a thin, ultra keen edge it's an awesome "sticker" and will cut and slash with the best of them. Extensively field tested by the president of Cold Steel in Australia in 2007-08, it has field dressed, skinned, and "broken up" dozens and dozens of animals from wild boar to buffalo and proved to be outstandingly efficient field knife. It's also ideal for use in countries or localities that prohibit or restrict double edged knives. Includes Secure-Ex Sheath.
