Product DescriptionCold Steel GI Tanto, Polycarbonate Scales Handle, Secure-Ex Sheath
As its name suggests, our G.I. Tanto is a no-nonsense tactical knife that comes with a legion of practical uses. It may be lean and spare, but it delivers the goods where they count the most! The broad Tanto point blade, integral quillon guard, and Polypropylene handle scales, exemplify a tactical knife stripped down to its bare essentials. Its ground razor sharp out of 1055 carbon steel with a hard spring temper and protected by a black, rust resistant finish so its ready to take all the abuse you and Mother Nature can dish out.
Heavy, sharp and wonderfully balanced, its easy to throw by either the blade or handle and it hits with real vigor. In a survival or self-defense situation, it can be quickly and easily converted into a spear or war club. Just remove the handle scales and lash the blade securely to a suitable wooden shaft! Best of all, its a great value. Please dont throw away hundreds and hundreds of dollars on similar knives sold by convicted felons and rip off artists posing as elite "military operators". Get the real G.I. Tanto from Cold Steel and get more than your moneys worth.Specifications

This knife is large, ridiculous, and most of all, fun. Priced perfectly. Good knife to upgrade (make new scales, practice sharpening technique) or to practice with if you’re not use to a large knife. It’s like a sharpened pry bar. You’d have a hard time breaking it even if you tried.
I don’t know what people expect for $26 but this thing is hefty and capable. It’ll take abuse and do 80% of the things a camp knife needs to do. Tanto profile is going to be somewhat limited as far as cutting and daily use but it is what it is. If you want an extreme outdoor camp blade with the best warranty in the business, invest $100 in an ESEE fixed blade. They pretty much dare you to break one, and if you do, they’ll replace it without a word. If you want something both tactical and hard use. Be a bigboy and spend some grown-man money on a TOPs. If you just want something to kick around and creep out the neighbors or your mother in law? Put on your best sleeveless shirt, throw a pinch of Copenhagen in your lip and take your cold steel GI tanto out back for some fun.
