Nobody knows the Tanto better than Cold Steel. After all, this knife style was originally invented and made popular by Cold Steel back in the early 80's, and, even after 25 years of producing Tanto knives, Cold Steel's Tanto series still offers an unmatched cutting/piercing power coupled with extreme strength and durability.

Cold Steel's Tantos are unique in more ways than one. These knives have a one-of-a-kind appearance. All of the Tantos undergo state-of-the-art grinding techniques. The hollow ground blade bevels of Cold Steel Tantos feature a lustrous satin finish while the flat spine has a contrasting line grain finish. These knives also feature another Cold Steel innovation - Kraton knife handles. The oval-shaped, checkered Kraton handle fits in your hand like a glove, providing you with a secure grip even in treacherous weather conditions. Another key feature of the Tanto series is the tapered, solid steel pommel. It was designed to focus the full force of a blow into a small area, ensuring that even a somewhat powerful blow could already disarm or incapacitate any attacker.

Now, the Master Tanto is one of the most formidable in Cold Steel's series. The blade is thick and strong, including the tip, which ensures the blade's toughness and power even after repeated hard use. Made from VG-1 San Mai III, the knife has superior flexibility and excellent edge retention. This high quality, blade-heavy knife is perfect tool for both fighting and utility.

All Tanto knives come with a top-of-the-line, thick black leather sheath that ensures your Tanto is right at your side, ready for anything that life or the wild throws your way.
