Cold Steel has been making knives since the early 1900s, and they have become synonymous with quality and innovation. Their products are designed by hand using only the finest materials available, and their blades are forged from the highest grade carbon steels. They also make great sheaths, and today we take a look at their latest offering - the Cold Steel Srk Survival Knife.
The Cold Steel Srk sheath is an excellent tool for carrying a folding knife. It has been made specifically for Cold Steel knives and comes with a belt clip. The sheath is constructed of heavy duty nylon webbing and features a strong metal frame around the outside edge of the sheath to protect against damage. This sheath will hold up well under normal wear and tear and is easy to carry. The sheath is available in black, tan, olive drab, and camouflage green.
You can purchase this sheath at any Cold Steel retailer. You can find more information about the sheath here:

This sheath is ideal for use with any Cold Steel knife. However, we recommend using the sheath only with the following models:
Cold Steel knives have become increasingly popular among outdoorsmen and women because they offer excellent value. They come in a variety of sizes and styles and are available in many different materials including carbon steel, stainless steel, titanium, and exotic metals like kangaroo skin and crocodile hide. There are even sheaths designed specifically for use with Cold Steel knives. Both of these sheaths are constructed of durable nylon webbing and feature a leather belt clip. They are ideal for carrying a Cold Steel knife anywhere you go. And if you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to defend yourself, these sheaths will keep your knife safe and secure until you can return home.
If you want to purchase one of these sheaths, here are a few things to think about:
Look for a sheath that feels sturdy and strong. A good sheath should hold up under heavy loads such as those encountered by hunters and hikers. You'll want something that won't break easily.
Make sure that the sheath is easy to open and close. This means that the zipper pull must be smooth so that you can quickly access your knife. The zipper pull should also be located near the tip of the sheath so that you can grab it with ease.
Consider the size of the sheath. Smaller sheaths tend to be easier to carry and conceal. Larger sheaths may be better suited for larger knives and tools. For example, the SRK sheath is large enough to accommodate most Cold Steel knives. On the other hand, the KSR sheath is small enough to fit inside a pocket or purse.
Finally, look for a sheath that matches your style. If you wear jeans and a T-shirt, then you probably prefer a smaller sheath. Conversely, if you dress in business casual attire, then you might prefer a larger sheath.
Blade length. The longer the blade, the more effective it is against animal hide. Longer blades are usually heavier than shorter ones, which makes them easier to handle. But they may be harder to conceal if you carry your knife in public.
Handle material. Many knives feature handles made of wood or bone. These materials are durable and strong, but they tend to be heavy. They're great for outdoor knives, but they're less comfortable to hold during close quarters encounters.
Steel composition. Some knives feature stainless steel blades while others feature carbon steel blades. Stainless steel blades are typically lighter than their carbon counterparts, but they rust over time. Carbon steel blades are stronger than stainless steel blades, but they tend to dull faster.
Edge geometry. Knives with straight edges are generally considered safer than those with serrated edges. Serrations can cause cuts and lacerations, especially if you're using the wrong hand position. Straight edged knives are easier to control and maneuver, but they're less versatile.
Weight. Heavy knives are difficult to wield, especially when you're wearing gloves. Lightweight knives are easier to manipulate, but they're hard to grip and control.
Length. Most knives fall into two categories -- short and long. Short knives are ideal for everyday tasks such as opening cans, slicing vegetables, and cutting paper. Long knives are useful for bigger jobs like skinning animals and splitting logs. Both types of knives are suitable for self defense purposes.
Tip shape. Knife tips come in three shapes -- flat, rounded, and pointed. Flat tip knives are most common, but pointed tips are sharper and easier to control. Rounded tips are softer and more forgiving, but they're harder to sharpen.
Finish. There are several finishes available for knifes. Matte finish means no surface treatment has been applied. Satin finish means the metal has been polished and buffed to give it a shiny appearance. Glossy finish means the metal has been given a protective coating to prevent scratches.
Cold Steel knives are known for their quality craftsmanship and durability. Their sheaths are no exception. Each model features a unique design that provides protection against damage caused by impact forces. Here we will look at three of the most popular models currently available.
Srk Sheath. The original Cold Steel Srk was introduced in 2003. It is a full tang knife with a drop point style blade. It is constructed from stainless steel and measures 3.25 inches overall length. The handle scales feature a black finish and are covered in leather. A lanyard hole is located on the spine of the sheath.
The SRK II is essentially the same knife as the Srk except it has a slightly modified grip angle. The handle scales are now finished in black instead of brown.
The Srk III is a compact version of the Srk. It is smaller than its predecessor but larger than the Srk II. It is constructed from carbon steel and measures 2.75 inches overall length. The handle scales are finished in black and feature a rubberized coating.
