Cold Steel “Pushes the Edge” with the New Mayhem Folding Knife

Irving, TX – Some folks are satisfied carrying quaint folders in their pockets. Others favor a more robust solution for everyday cutting tasks. Then there are the discerning few for whom only the biggest and brashest blades will do. For these aficionados, Cold Steel introduces one of its toughest and boldest locking folder ever…the new Mayhem.

The stats alone are impressive:

  • A 6-inch blade that can cut, slice, and slash its way through the biggest challenges
  • A 13.3-inch open length offering a fistful of grip suitable for the burliest of hands
  • A 13-ounce weight delivering unflinching heft for serious chopping tasks
  • A 7.3-inch closed length, meaning you never need a “bump check” to know it’s there and ready

Boasting a durable AUS10A blade steel in satin finish, the Mayhem folder meets all the criteria for a do-it-all folding knife. The thick blade features aggressive, no-slip jimping across the spine for optimal control during precision cutting followed by a cleanly tapered false edge to assist penetration. The fully contoured belly presents a deliberate geometry that enhances slicing and slashing.

Expert control of the Mayhem comes through the ergonomically designed black G10 handle. The crescent profile augmented by deep finger grooves guarantees a positive grip when stabbing or making deep pull cuts.

Positioned between the handles is Cold Steel’s patent pending ATLAS locking system. This dual-pin and lockbar design blurs the line between fixed- and folding-blade knives with a strength surpassed only by the stoutest fixed blades and the smooth operational performance you expect from a premium folder. Opening assist comes courtesy of integrated thumb studs. The pocket clip is ambidextrous for left- or right-hand carry.

To launch the Mayhem folder, Cold steel is offering the knife in two models—the standard Mayhem previously described and the limited Mayhem Launch Edition, which comes with a S35VN blade, black/red G10 handle, and a limited-edition serial number.
