Cold Steel Announces the Gunsite Counter Point 1

Cold Steel has been known for its purpose-built knives for quite a while now, especially among those in the outdoor community and those interested in the martial arts and self-defense.

Likewise, Gunsite Academy is a name heavily steeped in tactical readiness. It has the reputation as being the premier firearms training facility in the country.

Cold Steel Releases Special Gunsite Knife

Now the two names are coming together. Cold Steel has announced the introduction of the Gunsite Counter Point 1, a top-quality folding knife designed for everyday carry and a perfect addition to your range bag, day pack or ready kit.

Gunsite Counter Point 1’s Built With Solid Features

The Gunsite Counter Point 1 is built around Cold Steel’s heralded Tri-Ad locking mechanism, a super-strong, dependable design. The knife features a 4-inch stiletto-inspired spear point blade, 3.5mm thick, made of Japanese AUS10A stainless steel. That alloy provides excellent corrosion resistance and edge retention in an easy-to-sharpen platform.

The blade edge is half plain and half serrated for expanded utilitarian performance. The blade also features a false edge on the spine backed with jimping to ensure optimal blade control.

An integrated thumb stud allows for smooth and quick, one-handed blade deployment. The renowned Gunsite Raven logo across the blade makes this a special knife that you’ll be proud to carry.

Counter Point 1 Has Grippy Griv-Ex Handle

The knife includes reinforced and heat-treated aluminum liners, flanked by Cold Steel’s popular Griv-Ex handles in OD Green. The generous, highly tactile stipling found along the Griv-Ex handles offers a secure grip even with wet or sweaty hands.

Assisting in the positive grip is an ergonomic contour with a prominent finger groove and integrated tang and butt profile to deliver a solid, comfortable hold for any cutting job.

With an overall length of 9 inches open and an ambidextrous pocket clip for tip-up carry, the 4.7-ounce Gunsite Counter Point 1 is a solid go-to folder that meets any challenge.
