Cold Steel Pro Guard / Point Guard Knife – Product Review

The Cold Steel Pro Guard / Point Guard Knife is a fixed-blade knife designed for self defense. A lightweight knife, great retention feature, decent length, and the Secure-Ex® Sheath makes this knife my favorite conceal carry.

Weapon Retention Grip

The nature of being close during a knife fight makes weapon retention an important element to consider. If you can’t hold on to your knife while defending yourself, you may find yourself at the mercy of your attacker. There are many grips and techniques that will help with weapon retention but, The Cold Steel Pro Guard / Point Guard Knife finger hole makes it a lot easier. Slightly canted to keep your wrists in a more natural position.

Concealment

The Cold Steel Pro Guard / Point Guard Knife is designed to be a neck knife. It can easily be concealed hanging around your neck and under your shirt. The knife is extremely light, only weighing 2.8 oz. making it very comfortable to wear.

Modified For Belt Concealment

I personally don’t like The Cold Steel Pro Guard / Point Guard Knife as a neck knife so i modified the sheath in order to loop it on my belt. Using a paracord and basic knots.

Safer to Grapple and Clinch

Push button release on the sheath makes it safer than most knives to grapple and clinch with. Makes it harder for your weapon to accidentally slip out during a scuffle or for your opponent to draw your Cold Steel Point Guard off your hip.

Pros

  • Comfortable grip
  • Great weapon retention
  • Length
  • Lightweight
  • Secure-Ex® Sheath

Cons

  • only 2 grip variations
  • weak tip
  • awkward as a utility knife.

Conclusion

The Cold Steel Pro Guard / Point Guard Knife is an ideal fixed blade knife for self defense. The design of the knife is strictly for self protection. The length, retention, and Secure-Ex® Sheath makes it a great conceal carry knife.
