First Look: Cold Steel Click-N-Cut Folder

posted on June 14, 2021

Cold Steel makes purpose-built knives and blade tools for everyday carry, tactical, and hunting applications, and now they are introducing the newest model in their replaceable-blade knife series, the Click-N-Cut Folder.

By addressing the core drawbacks of most replaceable-blade knives on the market today, namely weak blades and equally weak locking mechanisms, the Click-N-Cut series knives set a new standard in replaceable-blade hunting knife technology. The Click-N-Cut system is designed to employ thicker blades for added strength and to ensure the locking mechanism can withstand the pressures that are often applied when field dressing and quartering big game animals. Now, that same proven technology is incorporated into the all-new Click-N-Cut Folder from Cold Steel.

A fresh lock bar and blade locking engagement design delivers the same easy-to-remove and easy-to-install replacement blade system as the original Click-N-Cut fixed-length knives, but with the convenience and compact storage of a folding lock-back knife. Replacing a blade on the Click-N-Cut Folder is as simple as partially folding the blade with the lock bar depressed, removing and replacing the blade, and allowing the lock bar to secure the bade in the closed or open position.

The Click-N-Cut Folder comes with two 2.75-inch blades—a drop point blade and a serrated utility blade. The knife also has an ambidextrous pocket clip to secure the knife conveniently in pants, over a belt, or in a hunting pack pocket.
