Your friends may turn a pronounced shade of green—with envy that is—the first time you snap open your new Black Sable™ and they start eyeing that magnificent mirror polished blade. Of course, they’ll plead with you to hand it over for closer inspection and of course they’ll immediately want to know where they can get one of their own. We all like to be in the spotlight now and then and when you’re the proud owner of a Cold Steel® Black Sable™, not only will you have a finely crafted folder; you’ll also have bragging rights that will last for years.
Consider the blade—made of hollow ground San Mai III® stainless steel and hand polished to a mirror shine—even the most jaded eyes will find it fascinating. But a Cold Steel® blade is more than just homage to style, this blade has enough substance to be frightfully effective. Every feature from its curved, upswept shape to its acute, reinforced point has been judiciously chosen to maximize cutting and piercing power. Just running your thumb over its razor sharp edge will tell you this is something to be reckoned with.
But no folder can stand on the merits of its blade alone. That’s why Cold Steel® spared no expense or effort in making sure every other component corresponds to the blade in quality and performance. The distinctively shaped, pistol grip handle features a Titanium frame overlaid with highly polished black Micarta scales and forged Titanium bolsters that have been matched together and bolted inseparably to the frame with the latest high tech fasteners.
To protect the fingers from the unintentional closure of the blade, the Black Sable™ has been fitted with Cold Steel’s® state of the art “rocker” lock. A highly refined locking mechanism, perfected by Cold Steel® over the last eighteen years, that relies on extra strong springs, super close tolerances and other secret refinements to make it equal, if not superior, in strength, to any other lock on the market.
For carrying and operating convenience, the Black Sable™ comes complete with dual, mirror polished pocket clips (for ambidextrous operation), and double thumb studs for rapid deployment.
