Cold Steel Sisu 60SS

Cold Steel Sisu - CS60SS

Cold Steel company President, Lynn Thompson has long been an admirer of Finland and its people. As a sixth grade student, when he did a report on this tiny, but fiercely independent Scandinavian nation, he discovered the Puukko, the national knife of Finland. Eventually he met and married a Finnish girl from a city in the Michigan Upper Peninsula called Escanaba.

A uniquely Finnish characteristic he admires and tries to emulate is Sisu (pronounced: siss-sue). Philosophically, it can be roughly described in English as; guts, tenacity, steadfastness, courage, and an indomitable will to succeed and survive. He even has a small plaque above his desk with only this simple word printed on it. So, he has revived and updated a classic Puukko design and christened it, appropriately enough, "Sisu".

Because Lynn feels so strongly about this knife, Cold Steel has spared no expense or labor in its manufacture. The taper ground blade is made from Cold Steel's exclusive VG-1 San Mai III® blade, and given an exquisite mirror polish finish, and a devastatingly sharp edge.

A blade this handsome requires an equally attractive hilt. To that end, Cold Steel has settled on using deep black linen micarta and set it off by a matching, highly polished nickel silver bolster and pommel.

To complete this superb example of the knife maker's art, Cold Steel has housed the Sisu in a traditionally styled scabbard. Made of thick sturdy leather and equipped with an internal synthetic safety liner it is sure to give years of rugged service.
