Cold Steel at IWA 2012

This was one knife company that was unfortunately not at SHOT Show this year. We don't know the reason, but if you were in Nuremberg for the IWA and Outdoor Classics, you would have seen them putting on quite the show with their amazing blades. Joerg Sprave from the Slingshot Channel was one lucky spectator and for good reason as you will soon see in his video. He is certainly no stranger to well crafted steel as he hails from Dortmund with a hop skip and a jump from the German knife hub of Solingen.

Cold Steel Viking Axe
Cold Steel's charismatic leader Lynn Thompson was on hand to show off their new Viking Axe as well as a great demonstration using his "cutlery". It is always great to see folks that are energetic when it comes to talking about their craft and not just another suit. These two guys definitely are enthused with what they produce and are not afraid to show it off to the masses.

Joerg also spins off the video to some other great knife producers including the great knife manufacturer Boker, which has its own roots in Solingen, as well as some other well sharpened weaponry. Hopefully these guys can make it out to Vegas next year for some first hand viewing pleasure.
