Description
CS39LSSC: OSS
Cold Steel

The OSS® sub-hilt fighter offers all the advantages and performance of a custom knife at a fraction of the price. For the ultimate grip, the handle guard, and sub-hilt are injection molded in one in one integral piece of Kraton®. This manufacturing method makes the OSS® more affordable while delivering the durability, security, and control in the hand that the sub-hilt fighter is famous for.

The OSI is the single edged version of our OSS. Hollow ground to a thin, ultra keen edge it's an awesome "sticker" and will cut and slash with the best of them. Extensively field tested by Cold Steel President, Lynn C. Thompson, in Australia in 2007-08, it has field dressed, skinned, and "broken up" dozens and dozens of animals from wild boar to buffalo and proved to be outstandingly efficient field knife. It's also ideal for use in countries or localities that prohibit or restrict double edged knives.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Scary knife
Let me say, for the price, this is probably one of the scariest and effective combat knives around. It's light, long, double edged, and chilling razor sharp for Japanese AUS-8 stainless steel. It's a dual hollow ground blade and very effective in any type of combat situation. If you want to kill something, this is truly the knife for you. Or to have in any collection. I would easily replace this with my standard Tanto as a sidearm knife. The sheath perfectly fit's the scabbard but it is very snug and one must be very cautious about pulling this blade out. If you get one, you will know what I mean. Other than that, the sheath is pretty sweet and works in many fashions adding it to the battle dress Uniform. but seriously Cold Steel has a thing about quality that they had adhered to for just about every product that I have ever owned of theirs. Very well made blade otherwise and worth the investment for any serious collector.

Cons: None
A great addition to my collection .
I am seeing too many people talking about this knife as though it were a utility knife . It is not designed with that in mind . This knife is designed to be a weapon . A utility knife will have a safe side , an unsharpened side . This does not have a safe side putting this knife in the weapons category . The balance is very good . The sub-hilt handle is very secure , no one will take this from you , unless you are unconscious . All in all an excellent example of a purpose built knife . This should be on your short list to take with you if you go into harms way regularly .
