The original 4-Max proved to be all that one could hope for, but it was expensive and difficult to manufacture and deliver in a timely manner to meet customer demand. The 4-Max Scout is easier to produce and is a far more affordable alternative. It features an extra-wide drop point blade and stonewashed finish, which is identical to the original 4-Max. It's crafted from thick AUS-10A stainless steel, for strength, toughness and edge holding potential. The handle's silhouette mirrors the original but instead of a G10 handle, the 4-Max Scout has one made of Griv-Ex with stainless steel liners and a Griv-Ex backspacer. Equipped with Andrew Demko's ground-breaking Tri-Ad locking mechanism, the 4-Max Scout has passed every one of Cold Steel's gruelling shock and impact tests and then gone on to hold 600 lbs. of free-hanging weight with no damage!

I love this knife, strong as a Rhino. I mention Rhino as I also have the Muela Rhino full tang fixed blade... but a pocket knife version of it would be great.The 4-Max Scout is it.
Hand grip is a bit on the larger side.. but feels excellent in an average to larger hand. But a slightly smaller hand should also feel fine.
A truly great larger EDC folder if you prefer a bit of a more of a strong/sharp/meaty pocket-knife.
This is not a small more delicate folder, I f you can take only one knife on a survival mission... then this is it.
