This classic sub-hilt design fighter was first developed by Bob Loveless, one of the founding members of the knifemaker's guild. It's perhaps the quintessential combat knife. Its blade offers excellent reach and incredible penetration with very little physical effort. The sub hilt practically eliminates the possibility of the hand being dislodged or coming into contact with the blade. Plus, the sub hilt facilitates rapid and effortless withdrawal after insertion.
Cold Steel uses the same VG-1 San Mai III
® steel that is found in their famous Tanto series. The blades are perfectly heat treated and a double grind is expertly applied. Then the surface of the blade is polished to a beautiful satin finish, and the edges are honed and buffed to hair shaving sharpness! The black linen Micarta scales are fastened to the blade tang by 6 stainless pins and expertly hand shaped and contoured. Then the handle, including the 300 series stainless guard and sub hilt is buffed to a lustrous shine that will rival the finest custom knives! The Black Bear comes complete with a Secure-Ex® sheath.
