The Cold Steel Rajah III Folding Knife exhibits the best of a Kukris characteristics. First, the unique shape presents its thin, hollow ground edge at just the right angle so they naturally bite deep instead of bouncing or skidding off. And secondly the point is thick, wide and sharp enough to pierce even the toughest targets.

The handle has some of the contours of fixed blade Kukris with the addition of strategically placed curves and finger grooves. These features will facilitate 3 grip styles. One - very close to the cutting edge where you can really choke up on the handle for fine or delicate work. Two by the middle for ordinary chores. And three near the end or butt where you will have the most leverage and weight forward balance for heavy cutting or chopping and where you will receive maximum reach advantage.
The only suitable lock that can sustain the incredible impact forces generated by chopping strokes with a Rajah folder is our new TRI-AD lock. Designed specifically to take pressure off the smaller, more fragile interlocking surfaces of a rocker lock and transfer them to a uniquely positioned stop pin that will absorb and distribute these forces through the handle frame.
The Rajah III is basically a scaled down, more pocket friendly, version of its big brother. Designed by Andrew Demko, it shares almost all the major features of the Rajah II including an AUS 8A stainless blade, Tri-Ad lock, thumb plate opener, ambidextrous pocket clips, and a Grivory handle with steel liners for ext ra strength and rigidity.
The Rajah IIIs handle offers a number of grip options due to its carefully sculptured shape and cross section and is particularly well suited to the reverse grip thanks to a unique thumb shelf built into the butt.
