This one’s trending lately, and it’s not hard to see why. The Cold Steel American Lawman S35VN is an extremely robust knives. But that’s not especially unique considering knives Cold Steel makes are always extremely robust. What makes this noteworthy is its steel, which is apparently one of the best in the business.

The American Lawman S35VN features a 3.5-inch high-quality steel, fully drop point in shape. That means it’s a facile option for any cutting task, in the kitchen or elsewhere. Apart from its topnotch steel, the blade comes coated in diamond-like material for added endurance. As a result, it’s also corrosion resistant. Again, though, that’s not really special considering Cold Steel is a master at excellent blades.

Another highlight is the Tri-Ad lock, which the company says it has put through a hostile and rigorous torture test to ensure optimum safety. You can fold the knife when not in use, and it features expertly designed G-10 handles. That means it’s got excellent grip during both grip and retrieval. It’s also got a reversible clip.

In our opinion, this is the perfect Everyday Carry option if you’re in the middle of cobbling together a starting kit. It’s by no means the best choice, to be sure. But for what it’s for and what it does, you can’t go wrong with the American Lawman S35VN. This is a high-performance blade that’s no-fuss, no-nonsense, and ready as soon as you are.
