GI Tanto Knife


Please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery on out of stock items


As its name suggests, Cold Steel's G.I. Tanto is a no-nonsense tactical knife that comes with a legion of practical uses. It may be lean and spare, but it delivers the goods where they count the most! The broad Tanto point blade, integral quillion guard and Polypropylene handle scales exemplify a tactical knife stripped down to its bare essentials. It’s ground razor sharp out of 1055 carbon steel with a hard spring temper and protected by a black, rust resistant finish so it's ready to take all the abuse you and Mother Nature can dish out.

Heavy, sharp and wonderfully balanced, it's easy to throw by either the blade or handle and it hits with real vigor. In a survival or self-defense situation, it can be quickly and easily converted into a spear or war club. Just remove the handle scales and lash the blade securely to a suitable wooden shaft! Comes with Secure-Ex sheath.

This is a lot of knife for the price.  It has a good cutting edge, and the blade is sturdy.  The grip is solid, and the handle scales can be tightened with a hex head wrench.  The blade takes and holds a good, sharp edge.  So far, it has held up well under some rather hard use.
