I've heard that Cold Steel knives come extremely sharp. Any truth to it?

Sammy

Coldsteel knives I have had are always razor sharp and ready for use.
There is a crazy video of blokes in shirts and ties hacking cows and ropes with Cold steel blades ....type it in on youtube and take a look.They even put meat in a leather boot and chop that in half :)
Here is a picture of the Katz tanto I had in the 90s ...super knife .
This one isn't my knife but exactly the same apart from the sheath...mine was tactical cordura .

Hope your well mate.

Ian

Wish all knives came that way, probably be missing a finger or two though, and have alot more scars!

I got this one from the old Atlanta/Parker cutlery co. in the early 80's, it cost in the low $20.00 range.
Back when I was younger and stupider I tried putting it through a car door; it went right in with no damage to the point.
A very similar handle design to the Cold Steel.
