The SR1’s heavy duty blade is made to put to work. Crafted from 5mm thick American CPM-S35VN premium powdered steel, it’s a heavy duty work horse, designed for the harshest and most unforgiving environments. A good blade needs a good handle, so the SR1’s handle is made from premium American G-10 with heat treated nested steel liners.
The Cold Steel SRK (Survival Rescue Knife) has been a proud flagship blade in our line-up for over 25 years. The knife of choice for many of our brothers and sisters in the military, it remains the standard issue fixed blade of the Navy SEALs during BUDS training to this day. It’s little wonder then, that when we tasked custom knife maker Andrew Demko with developing a new high-end tactical folding knife for military application, that he took inspiration from the legendary SRK! The SR1 features Andrew’s signature minimalist style, with no unnecessary flourishes or embellishments, just pure functional, no-nonsense, practical design. The SR1’s heavy duty blade is made to put to work. Crafted from 5mm thick American CPM-S35VN premium powdered steel, it’s a heavy duty work horse, designed for the harshest and most unforgiving environments. A good blade needs a good handle, so the SR1’s handle is made from premium G-10 with heat treated nested steel liners. With an integrated lanyard hole and coarse-textured surface for a secure grip even in cold, wet conditions, and expertly contoured to allow for a comfortable and safe grip even while wearing heavy gloves. For added reliability and peace of mind, we equipped the SR1 with our world-famous Tri-Ad® locking mechanism - proven time and time again to weather even the worst abuse, with unparalleled shock and impact resistance - making this knife the ideal choice for a survival rescue blade intended for our nation’s warrior elite!

An absolute "tank" of a knife. I was looking for a heavy duty folding knife that could perform the tasks of a light-duty fixed blade. (in my area, carrying a fixed blade of any length concealed is illegal, but folders are ok) The 5mm thick blade and extra strong locking mechanism of the SR-1 makes it fit the role nicely. There is nothing delicate about it, from the "sharpened prybar" school of knife design. My sample had good fit and finish and nicely sharp out of the box. The thick blade did a great job batoning some small firewood with no damage or looseness to the folding mechanism. That said, the handle is a little boxy and not as contoured as my Cold Steel AD-10. As I read in other reviews, the pocket clip on my sample is very tight and the aggressive texture of the G10 scales make clipping it to your pocket a two handed operation. So, if you are looking for a heavy use folder that echoes the design of your SRK, I think the SR-1 is a great choice. If you are looking for something a little more "refined" but still in the same bombproof class from Cold Steel, take a look at another Andrew Demko design, the AD-10.
Order was fir Clip Point, received Tanto. Not my first choice but will keep it.
