Description
CS80NTP: 80NTP Chaos Double Edge
Cold Steel
 
The troops serving in modern day battlefields are more heavily equipped than ever. Innovations in rigging and materials, coupled with many new wonderful gadgets and tools mean virtually every inch of real estate in a soldier's kit needs to be carefully considered. Our Chaos series fixed blades aim to fill some of that precious space with a truly impressive combat knife.

Taking inspiration from the classic "Trench Knives" from both World Wars of the last century, we have developed a tactical fixed blade that is suitable for today's modern day warriors.

The unique "D" ring guard is made from reinforced 6061 aluminum allowing for an incredibly secure and comfortable grip while protecting the hand both from incoming attack and damage while striking or cutting an opponent who's covered in body armor, ammo, flashlights, magazines and gear!

The thick 1055 carbon steel pommel is tapered for ferocious Punyo or Butt-Strikes, and the 7 1/2" SK-5 high carbon blade is available in either Double Edge or Tanto blade shapes. Additionally, the Chaos series is coated in black Tuff-Ex™, aiding corrosion resistance and enhancing cutting power by reducing friction.

They come complete with a tough Secure-Ex sheath, which features a belt loop for dependable, versatile carry.

Looks like a reallly good idea for Spec Ops
I am a former Infantry soldier having served in Vietnam as a Scout Dog Handler. 17 ounces might not sound like much, but hour by hour, day by day, the damn ounces add up. Would I rather have 2 and 1/8 cups of water (yes), or 17 oz of 5.56 ammo (yes) or this thing? How many soldiers, sailors, marines, spec ops actually need to stick someone? It does happen, but not that often. If you want a sticker, get one of the new Cold Steel Spikes. This blade would, I am sure, do the job. But at what cost to your back? This blade is for spec ops, REMPS, and people who are too chickenshit and cowardly and yellow and think that THEY are too special to serve their country to actually join the Service, but want to appear to be really, really badasssss to their friends. But since I'm now 66 years of age and shouldn't have to go to the field anymore, unless the ISIS craziness takes over the world, I might get one of these for a novelty item.

HARD TO KILL
This a fighting knife, end of story. It's not for survival. It's not a utility knife. It's not for cutting your steak, batoning, or building a shelter. It's for self-defense and mortal combat. That said, you'll understand I haven't had a chance to use it for its stated purpose yet, and it would be nice to never have to. However, let me tell you why it's such a perfect knife for what it's made for. First, it's a dagger, with a double edge. No flipping the blade to pull back across a body part belonging to a sentry. Easy in, easy out, less drag from a blunt side/edge. The D-guard is the next function I find most useful. Use it to parry, to punch, to break a fall, to protect your hands from your enemy's gear as you slash and stab. The guard is also reinforced by a brace midway down the handle, making you place two fingers on either side. This may appear a pain in the ass at first, but it has a very specific purpose, you ask me, other than keeping the guard strong and sturdy: It makes it that much harder for someone to take the knife out of your hands. Your middle and third finger naturally grip against the brace. Thirdly, the glass breaker on the pommel is a useful, less lethal alternative to using the blade. Smash a temple, a knee, a shin, pressure point, etc. And that's just on bad guys. Use it to crack a nut or break a passenger window once in a while, if you must. Weight is lite and nimble. I have "fighting knives" and this puts them to shame. Sheath is fine. Nothing beats a custom-made job, of course, but blade retention appears more than adequate, with multiple carry options. Overall, the knife feels very, very solid. Nothing feels tacked on. It's a one-purpose tool, and it knows it. As far as blade material, thickness, coating, full-tang vs. partial, grip material, edge retention, etc. I say only this -- that when it comes to daggers, none of the above matter nearly as much to me as they would if I were looking at a survival knife, for example. Let's be honest, daggers get used a lot less than utility knives. Unless you're living in a video game. Which might be kind of cool.
