The 4 Max Scout is easier to produce and is a far more affordable alternative. It features an extra wide, drop point blade and stone wash finish, which is identical to the original 4 Max. It’s crafted from 5mm thick AUS 10A steel, for strength, toughness and edge holding potential. The handle’s silhouette mirrors the original. The 4 Max Scout has one made of Griv-Ex™ with stainless steel liners and a Griv-Ex™ back spacer. Equipped with Andrew Demko’s ground breaking Tri-Ad® locking mechanism the 4 Max Scout has passed every one of our grueling shock and impact tests and then gone on to hold 600 lbs. of free hanging weight with no damage!

Wow. Just wow. I've been a fan of cold steel knives going on a year now, I own all the recon 1 series and love the premium s35vn steel on them. I was a bit hesitant at first due to this not being "premium steel" per say however I couldn't have been more wrong on waiting to buy this tank of a knife. This thing is thicc, solid and cold steel has excellent a heat treat which makes this Aus10 blade steel stand up to the toughest of tasks( literally ive done some light'ish batoning with this knife) and I couldn't even tell i just split a 2 inch thick log in half. If your are on the fence about buying it don't make my mistake and get it you WILL be pleasantly surprised.
Excellent fit,finish and grind. Very smooth action. Handle scale texture is perfect. Love the triad lock. The stone wash finish is top notch. Huge and heavy. Great value.
Just received my 4 Max Scout today, WHAT A BEAST IT IS!! Probably one of the stoutest (and heaviest) 4" bladed folders I've ever handled. Fast shipping and outstanding pricing (can't beat it for just under 83 bucks). The blade steel is awesome, and the Triad locking system is smooth yet bulletproof. Will have to smooth out the Grivex texturing under the pocket clip (it'll tear your pocket up pretty quick) but other than that one small detail the knife is a BIG win in my opinion. The AD10 will be my next one!
Hell of a knife ! Big and bad , scary sharp out of the box . Lowest price on the internet, even with shipping cost added ! This knife doesn't disappoint (well, maybe the pocket clip could be a little more functional) but other than that , this is a GREAT big folding knife that's made to last a lifetime & I have no doubts that it will, Shipping was fast & my overall purchasing experience with Knifeworks has been very positive so keep up the good work folks , and thanks for this awesome knife at such a reasonable price , you guys rock !
