I carried 3V Mini Pendleton as EDC for the first time and when I pulled it out to cut a zip tie - it was as dull as a spoon. How did it happen? Because in the morning before I went to work it was razor sharp! There's the answer: Even CPM-3V steel is no match for dulling power of Cold Steel Secure-Ex sheath. Secure-ex sheath will make your blade trully secure, you won't be able to cut yourself, or anyone for that matter even if you try! Sheath itself is carefully executed in a way that you don't even need to press the blade against it while drawing to get the ultimate dulling effect! Cold Steel master engineers have made sure to design it in a way that it will dull your blade while you're simply carrying it. So, my 3V Mini Pendleton Butter is safe even for little children. Jokes aside, I was lucky to still have my D2 Boker GoBag in my backpack. So I'm still using a knife this one should replace, that is until I get a proper sheath for this one. Because Cold Steel will give you a really crappy sheath and pretend it's all fine. Cold Steel usually ignores threads about their sheaths and will not adress these issues so I thought that it should be posted here as beware to people.
