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

Irving, Texas – Some people are content to carry quaint folders in their pockets. Others prefer a more robust solution for everyday cutting tasks. Then there are the perceptive few for whom only the biggest and most daring blades will do. For these fans, Cold Steel introduces one of its toughest and boldest lockdown folders: the new Mayhem.

The statistics alone are impressive:

  • A 6-inch blade that can chop, slice, and blast its way through the biggest challenges
  • An open length of 13.3 inches that offers a handful of grip suitable for larger hands
  • A 13-ounce weight that provides unwavering weight for serious cutting tasks
  • A closed length of 7.3 inches, which means you’ll never need a “functional check” to know it’s there and ready to go

Featuring a durable, satin-finish AUS10A steel blade, the Mayhem Folder meets all the criteria for a folding knife that does it all. The thick blade features aggressive, slip-resistant spine serrations for optimal control during precision cutting, followed by a false-tapered edge to aid penetration. The fully contoured belly features deliberate geometry that enhances cut and cut.

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

Between the handles is Cold Steel’s patent-pending ATLAS locking system. This double pin and locking bar design blurs the line between fixed and folding blade knives with strength surpassed only by the most robust fixed blades and the smooth operating performance you expect from a premium folder. Open assist comes courtesy of integrated thumb buttons. The pocket clip is ambidextrous for left or right hand carry.

To launch the Mayhem folder, Cold Steel offers the knife in two models: the standard Mayhem described above and the limited Mayhem Launch Edition, which comes with an S35VN blade, black/red G10 handle, and a limited edition serial number.
