First Look: Cold Steel Range Boss Folding Knife

Cold Steel is known for making innovative, purpose-built knives and blade tools that are well-suited for everyday carry, tactical, and hunting applications. Now they are coming out with the new Range Boss folding lockback for 2021, adding to their already extensive line of everyday carry folding knives.

Cold Steel engineers developed the Range Boss to be a true general-purpose folding knife that is thin and light enough to be carried in a pocket, waistband, or jacket but still just the right size for almost any task.

The Range Boss blade is constructed of 4034SS steel, with a flat-ground profile that is easy to sharpen and will stay sharp for extended use. The 4-inch length and clip point is optimized for performance and makes the knife suitable for a broad range of cutting jobs such as field dressing and utility work. The blade also features a stonewashed finish for a sharp look and reduced glare, and the thumb-assist stud makes one-hand opening a breeze.

Housing the folded blade and Cold Steel’s industry-leading Tri-Ad locking system is a 5.25-inch Zy-Ex handle. The glass-reinforced nylon handle material is available in black, OD green or flat dark earth and includes a tactile stippling pattern and jimping along the spine to ensure a positive grip with slippery hands or when wearing gloves. There is also an ambidextrous pocket clip for even more carry convenience.
