This is a very good price. I didn't check Amazin because of the frequency of falsies. The closest reputatble dealer that I saw was KC at $130+. If you are planning to have a large Jell-o desert for Thanksgiving, it might be time to get one of these before the dessert slithers out of the frig and lays waste to the overfed sleepers.

Surely that sheath was not made for that knife. Please tell me that picture of the sheath is an error.

Nope, just a repurposed San Mai tanto sheath.

I like that this knife is a big old hunk of VG-10. But I don't know who Cold Steel thinks they're fooling, calling this an outdoorsman's knife, or what the ad copy is on about with 'skinning' and 'breaking bones'. You don't field dress or skin game with a knife this size, especially the latter. I also don't know anyone who hacks through brush with a knife with a six inch blade. This is just another one of their stabbity specials. As for breaking bones... like.... wtf, like if you're being attacked by assailants in the middle of the woods? Is this the Outdoorsman or the Debt Collector? You don't even break bones when you're field dressing and butchering game, if you have to you sever at the joints. So I dunno what all you're getting up to out in the woods but it might need dialed back a tad. I could go on. My conclusion is that this is another fighting tanto and that like everything else Cold Steel makes, it's designed for personal, life or death combat against a ninja horde that is ambushing us as we try to open our car door, or the like. If you take it out in the woods it'll be of middling value, especially when compared with knives that are more optimized for dressing game, or even general everyday tasks like sawing. My two cents - save it for ninja shankin' and staking vampires.

I bought a Cold Steel American Lawman at a very good price (it wasn't new but really unused), I will use it to go camping. After watching youtube videod of what an ideal bushcraft knife should be, I decided that a good hatchet and a knife like the American Lawman will meet my needs, it's not like I am haunted by conspiracy theories where I need to carry a bugout bag with me 24/7.

CS makes reliable, strong knives. They also make some ridiculous ones but hell, every time I handle my large Luzon I cackle. It's too big not to laugh when you hold it, let alone opening it. The thing is, they take abuse and the lock stays put. I don't have a Lawman but I hear lots of good things. +1 on the hatchet. A heavy bushcraft knife can do all sorts of things like feathering a firestick... but a hatchet, let alone an actual axe, will shift far more weight in a survival situation than even a damn good knife will do. I like the White River Firecraft 3.5 and the LT Wright Jessmuk quite a bit tho. I used to have a bugout bag, mostly because I live in a location that, last I saw, was targeted by a bunch of Russian and Chinese IBCMs. I don't bother anymore unless something's happening, and even then I usually plan to shelter in place. You can't even get out of town on a holiday weekend; if the CBRN shit hit the fan it'd be so much worse. The highways and main roads that head toward less targeted areas would be parking lots packed with desperate idjits. Now my plans are more bug-in than bug-out. I've seen what it's like to die of radiation poisoning and I think I'd rather be vaporized if it comes to that. Quick and merciful compared to having your internal organs bleed out.

I can't seem to see where these are made . . . are they made in Cold Steel, Ohio or is this just another non-US manufacturer that Drop is hiding the provenance of?

I mean, if I were their attorney, I'd be like 'dude, maybe before we start suing people we should take down all those videos we have promoting voluntary manslaughter and criminal damage because judges and juries kinda don't always groove to that shit' but the thing is, I would not be their attorney. I like well made stuff and Cold Steel generally is well made, so I give some slack. But you get the sense that these guys have decided that their main market consists of people who get excited at the thought of having the chance to kill an intruder. Being their attorney has gotta be like being the PR guy for George Zimmerman. Besides I get that trademark law is use it or lose it and companies have to have lawyers protecting them, but the whole 'San Mai' trademark thing is impossible to respect.

Take 1 helping of "Cold Steel" , a cup of "San Mai", add a pinch of "Cease and Desist" , and Google.

Finally received my Outdoorsman and I have to say that it's the nicest Cold Steel blade I own now. The edged portion of the spine is quite sharp in case anyone was wondering. My only gripe is it's fit in the securex sheath, too much play. It is noisy especially when compared to my Recon Tanto and Kobun. I think a leather sheath would do it justice.

its because the sheath wasn't designed for the outdoorsman..it was designed for the tanto. cold steel cut corners to save on design and manufacturing.. get a nice custom leather sheath or order the leather one from cold steel if they still carry them
