Cold Steel Black Bear Classic Subhilt Fixed 8-1/4" VG-1 San Mai III Blade
CS14BBCJ: Black Bear Classic
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 8" 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. Versions of this design are offered by hundreds of custom knife makers at premium prices. Therefore we thought it was about time to offer premium sub-hilt performance at a more reasonable price, so we designed the Black Bear Classic. Black Bear Classic: Tactical Knives Black Bear Classic: Tactical Knives We use the same VG-1 San Mai III® blade that is found in our 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.
