Cold Steel Tanto

Cold Steel Tanto
There isn't a person working in the knife industry today that knows more about the Tanto than Cold Steel does. It was, after all, Cold Steel who invented and popularized this knife style in the early 1980's. We have spent well over a million dollars persuading the public, both through advertising and live or videotaped demonstrations, of the Tanto's many advantages. We have been producing Tanto's for more than 25 years now, and there is still no factory or custom knife maker around making a Tanto that can approach the cutting, slashing or piercing power of one that is manufactured by Cold Steel.

All of our Tantos feature a deep lustrous satin finish on the hollow ground blade bevels and a contrasting line grain finish on the blade flats. This technique highlights our state of the art grinding methods and emphasizes the Cold Steel Tanto's unique appearance. In addition, the Tantos come with our famous flattened oval Kraton® handle. The oval shape provides a solid grip and resists rolling or twisting in the hand under hard use, the kind that, over time, would destroy a lesser knife. The use of Kraton® in knife handles is another Cold Steel innovation. Kraton® is an unparalleled space age material that won’t crack or rot and is immune to the ravages of bad weather.

The tapered, solid steel pommel is another important Tanto feature that should not be ignored. Lynn Thompson designed it to concentrate the full force of a crushing blow in a small area so that even a moderately powerful blow can be remarkably effective.

The knives in the Tanto Series all come with a thick, high quality black leather sheath that is sure to give years of hard service and keep your Tanto at your side, ready for action.

New for 2015

Our classic San Mai III® fixed blades have been a Cold Steel staple for decades. Coveted by Martial Artists and knife collectors alike, they are much in demand, but these high-end luxury fixed blades are only produced in exclusive limited edition runs each year.

Therefore, we are proud to introduce our new Nightfall Series of Japanese styled blades made from American CPM 3-V high performance powdered steel - with the same design and attention to detail as our much loved San Mai classics but with the addition of this premium American super steel, we're excited to usher in a new era of high performance fixed blades for the discerning knife owner.

Each of these tough, reliable blades is DLC (diamond like) coated to a rich inky black finish. Highly scratch and wear resistant, and honed to an edge that you would expect on the keenest of razor blades, they are not only super sharp, but built to last!
