It's been observed that fashion is fleeting. What's "in" now will soon be "out" of style. The knife industry, like any other, is Subject to the same winds of political correctness and notions of popular taste. At Cold Steel, we try to stay abreast of the currents of change, but we also recognize that good design never goes out of style. The Cold Steel tantos, trail master, and voyagers illustrate this point very well. Our new counter Tac boot knives were designed with this simple philosophy in mind. The full tang blades are made from beautifully polished aus 8A stainless steel that's vacuum heat treated, and Sub zero quenched for strength. They are hollow ground and end in a sturdy but needle sharp point that's ideal for effortless penetration, and of course the edge is razor sharp. The ergonomic design of the kray-ex grip is comfortable and adaptable to any Fighting style, and the deeply textured surface and double guard will insure that the knife is not likely to slip from your hand under any circumstances. Finally, each counter Tac is shipped with a state of the art secure-ex sheath, complete with a removable boot/belt clip and lashing slots so you can carry or conceal it just about anywhere.
