Cold Steel® Relaunches Renowned ARC Angel Balisong Knife,

IRVING, TX – Jan. 23, 2024 – This folder from Cold Steel is far more than just a tool, it’s a true work of art. With its sleek lines, ergonomic handle and ultra-smooth flipping action, the brand’s newly launched ARC Angel Balisong Folding Blade seamlessly blends both elegance and functionality in a single, easy-to-carry package that’s sure to make balisong enthusiasts swoon.

Cold Steel, the undisputed leader in the outdoor knife and tool industry trusted by professional law enforcement, military and other emergency services personnel for decades, has just reintroduced one of its most iconic blades—the ARC Angel. A true testament to the precision designs the brand is known for, this balisong-style knife features one-of-a-kind, precision-engineered handles that rotate smoothly around the tang, concealing the 5.45-inch, spear-point blade whenever it’s not in use.

And, thanks to its blade being constructed entirely of AUS10A steel with an eye-catching, polished finish, this folder boasts a sleek-looking finish users at every level are sure to appreciate—from hardcore collectors to budding knife aficionados alike. Add to that the black, aluminum cut-out handle, and its 100% made-in-the-USA construction, and there’s not much else needing said.

Simply put, Cold Steel has recreated one lightweight, yet all-purpose tool that’s both simple to carry—thanks to a premium leather sheath, also made 100% in the USA—and a blast to show off. Period. The rest you’ll need to see for yourself.
