The Leatherneck Tanto features our signature Cold Steel “American Tanto” blade with a stout reinforced tip for extra strength. It’s made from tough D2 Tool Steel with a non-reflective black powder coat finish. To keep the user’s fingers from sliding forward onto the keen edge, the Leatherneck comes with a solid steel double quillon guard. The handle is made of deeply checkered Griv-Ex that totally encompasses the Leatherneck’s extra wide, full tang. The Leatherneck’s handle is capped with a thick, machined steel butt cap (not cheap casting or plastic like some others on the market) so they can even double as a hammer in an emergency! To carry the Leatherneck knife safely and conveniently, it comes complete with a sturdy and versatile military style Secure-Ex sheath with fully detachable and ambidextrous belt loop.
