“I wonder why things have to change,” murmured Piglet.
Pooh thought for a while, then said, “It gives them a chance to get better.”
All things change, all things evolve.
This isn’t the first time Cold Steel has changed, but this feels vastly different and I’m struggling with what seems to be a turn toward a path less-desirable for the long-term fans of the brand.
This move made sense for those with a vested interest, and I hope the dollars were sufficient.
I hope to see an influx of new, eager customers…wanting that well-built value and attendant badassery upon which Cold Steel built their hard-wrought rep. Lynn’s baby is all grown up.
The current iteration has, however, removed so much of the nostalgia from the brand for me that I no longer enjoy my own Cold Steel knives as much.
I hope others do not feel the same.
Thanks for the amazing blades, Lynn.
