CS80PGTK: G.I. Tanto
Cold Steel

As its name suggests, our 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 quillon 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! Best of all, it’s a great value. Get the real G.I. Tanto from Cold Steel and get more than your money’s worth.

Great knife for camping, hiking or anything outdoors that a knife might be needed. This is a VERY sturdy and sharp knife. Plastic sheath also well built HOWEVER if the knife is pushed into the sheath as far as it can go it can be EXTREMELY difficult to remove.

I'm a Rough Boy
If you are looking for a finely crafted blade, keep on looking. This is a heavy, blunt instrument ready for rough work. The edge it came with was garbage, but a little work with the Arkansas stones got it razor sharp. It is pretty easy to sharpen free-hand given the linear design of the blade. The handle material is nothing special, a bit slick for my taste. But it is a thick, heavy full-tang blade. I haven't beaten on it yet, but it looks like it will take a beating easily. I am sure the coating will wear off almost immediately. It is one of the heavier knives I own - not sure about taking it backpacking because of the weight. This is more for situations when you want a beater knife that you know you aren't going to break. I cannot imagine what I would have to do to break this knife, but it would be something pretty extreme.
