    Isn't that basically what the 4-Max is?

    The description says the knife features full length aluminum liners

    The 4max was a less made larger model he did through his custom shop. I think they started with this model due to the cold steel fan base liking larger folders.

    I missed that. Thanks for the correction.

    Secure Ex C Clips both large and small invented by our very own Mike Sastre.

    You would be correct. It is slightly Blade heavy

    Weird, my AD15 isnt blade heavy, if i balance it on my finger at the choil it actually favours the handle by the tiniest bit, most times just balances perfect.

    I think aluminum lines are great on knives. Zero rust even after use with sweaty or wet hands, strong, light, whats not to like. Just like on the voyagers.

    It''s time for CS to release a 5-Max (or even a 6-Max), still using CPM-20CV.. that I would throw good money at!

    I'd like to see the return of the mini Recon 1. It's much better size for me to EDC than the Recon 1.

    You are not alone. But CS never listens to their customers. Otherways 2019 line-up would show us a lot of uncoated folders.And a Code4 with G10 scales. Thats the basic minimum everyone begging for quite a long time. With no result.
    DLC killed Mini Recon Series not the price point (which was Ok to me).

    I've seen a lot of begging for a Cold Steel version of the AD10 and the integration of the Scorpion Lock into their lineup, so it seems they DO listen to their customers some...

    The AD-10 looks like a winner.

    I'm a huge fan of A2, so I think that's a good move for their large fixed blades.

    I think so too..... 2019, 2018 and also 2017 line ups offer a lot of uncoated blades...so it seems they listen to their customers. But I understand that people want uncoated versions of the iconic folders (Recon1, Lawman etc.) too. I think another proof CS listens to their customers (reads forums, watches videos) is the addition of handle scales to the Drop Forged Survivalist

    Yes please. Even if they are limited runs. The Max are essentially the super car of the brand which gives it the brand image.
    That brand image trickles down the lineup. They should always have a Max in the pipeline.

    Not to mention the new, dark grey coating on the entire Drop Forged line! Even the Hunter, which had a black powder coat originally, has the new dark grey teflon finish. Plus the addition of the DF Battle Ring, wow! Keep 'em coming Cold Steel!!!

    Nice vid. I like that the AD10 is hollow ground. 3D machined scales.
