Cold Steel is known for making purpose-built knives and blade tools for everyday carry, tactical, and hunting applications. Now they are introducing the new Gunsite Counter Point 1 folding knife, with the Gunsite Raven logo across the blade, making it a great addition to any range bag or for your everyday carry needs.

The Gunsite Counter Point 1 is built around Cold Steel’s heralded Tri-Ad locking mechanism, one of the strongest, safest, and most secure locking system in the industry, making the Gunsite Counter Point 1 ready to go for for almost any task. The 4-inch stiletto-inspired spear point blade features a stylish false edge spine that is backed with jimping to ensure optimal blade control.

An integrated thumb stud also allows for smooth and quick blade deployment. The knife is made of 3.5 mm thick Japanese AUS10A stainless steel alloy to deliver exceptional corrosion resistance and edge retention in an easy-to-sharpen platform, and the blade also includes an aggressive half-serration for even more performance.
 

Reinforced and heat-treated aluminum liners are flanked by Cold Steel’s popular Griv-Ex handles in OD Green. The generous, highly tactile stipling found along the Griv-Ex handles offers a secure grip, even with wet or sweaty hands. An ergonomic contour with a prominent finger groove assists in maintaining a positive grip, and integrated tang and butt profile to deliver a solid, comfortable hold for any cutting job.

With an overall length of 9 inches open and an ambidextrous pocket clip for tip-up carry, the 4.7-ounce Gunsite Counter Point 1 is a solid go-to folder that meets any challenge.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
