|The push knife was first
made popular in the U.S. during the 1849 Gold Rush in California. The
reason for the success of this knife was a combination of compact size,
deadly efficiency and unparalleled grip.
Now Cold Steel® is happy to present the finest
production push knives in almost 150 years, featuring unique non-slip
Kraton® handles, which mold comfortably to the fist for a grip that's
almost impossible to dislodge.
These knives are tremendously popular with military
personnel around the world because unlike a revolver or automatic pistol,
they never break, malfunction or run out of ammunition. What's more, they
offer "big knife" cutting and piercing potential in a compact
package (2" shorter overall than most boot knives) that can be easily
attached to tactical web gear, tucked in a waistband or boot top or
strapped to a wrist or ankle.
Safe Keeper I
Designed for the turn of the century, the Safe Keeper
I is the ultimate push knife. Its 5" long blade is extra-wide (almost
11/2") and unlike other boot knives, is ground thin enough at the
edge to be breathtakingly sharp. Just the look of this knife with its
wicked blade jutting out from the fist is enough to deter most aggressors.
Plus, if action is necessary, the Safe Keeper's shock absorbing,
"T" shaped handle provides devastating "punching"
blows yet is so secure in one's closed fist that it is practically
impossible for even a novice to be disarmed.
Safe Keeper II
In may respects, the Safe Keeper II is almost a
copy of the Safe Keeper I. It offers the same razor sharp AUS 8A stainless
steel, heat treatment, and beautiful satin finish. Even the shape of the
blade and handle are remarkably similar. The only real difference is that
length of the blade (33/4") and handle have been
shortened to accommodate those who recognize the many tactical advantages
of the push knife but prefer an even lower profile.
Every Safe Keeper is supplied with a Kydex
boot/belt sheath which features a friction fit retainment system
to prevent loss and facilitate immediate access.
