A letter from Vladimir Vasiliev : Russian Special Operations Unit, Systema Headquarters chief instructor

To Lynn Thompson and staff of Cold Steel

On behalf of myself and my renowned Russian colleagues Colonel Mikhail Ryabko and Major Konstantin Komarov, I would like to express our most sincere appreciation for the products of Cold Steel.

The Quality and the variety of the blades are exceptional. Lynn Thompson clearly has a profound understanding of the edged weapons and combat applications. Each knife just fits into the hand, solid and balanced. Talented design and superb quality manufacturing, Lynn's weapons are ideal for practical application, as collectors' items and as training tools.

Most recommended to all who use and value weapons!

Vladimir Vasiliev
Russian Special Operations Unit,
Systema Headquarters chief instructor
