Cold Steel Tai Pan

Cold Steel Tai Pan
Designed by Lynn C. Thompson in the distinctive “Tanto” style, the Tai Pan® embodies all the best features of a classic dagger while minimizing its shortcomings.

Most daggers are notorious for having thin, fragile points that are easily broken. In contrast, the Tai Pan® features a sturdy spear point which is wide and thick enough to resist breaking without compromising its ability to offer deep, effortless penetration.

The razor sharp twin edges offer twice the potential cuts, slashes, and locks of a single edge knife. When used with skill, the Tai Pan® can cut a 180° arc up or down or from side to side. With a balance point just behind the guard, the Tai Pan® has subtle ”handle heavy” feel making it ideal for thrusting yet remaining “lively” in the hand.

As with the Tanto, the Tai pan® features a tapered black Kraton® handle with a unique flattened oval cross section. Over time, this material and handle shape have proven ideal for preventing the knife from shifting or turning in the hand even under the worst circumstances.

Meticulously fashioned from 300 series stainless steel, the traditional style tsuba and bolster offer both added safety and beauty. The Tai Pan’s® butt terminates in a tapered, semi-pointed pommel ideal for impact usage.

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!
