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.

Pros: Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Great knife for the money
This is a great all around knife for the price. I have used it for small tasks and even batoning. This is a hard knife to break. Plus...... It is cheap enough that you won't feel bad using it as a tool.

Pros: Overall Quality, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: Handle Material, None
Subtle? No. Awesome? Yes.
This thing is not subtle or beautiful. But it doesn't need to be. It is a tool, not a work of art. It takes a nice edge and you can really beat on it. It feels like something a peasant farmer in the third world would own. Basic, simple, reliable and cheap. I suppose it would be a formidable weapon, but I think its best use is as a tough-as-nails beater knife in the back country. The only thing I don't like is the handle. It is too slick. Wrap it with something.

Pros: Overall Quality, Materials, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
i have been buying and using knives & other edged tools for 50+ years. Never have I seen anything this impressive from a value position. Have owned this blade about 3 months. Cosmetically, it is NOT pretty. Functionally, it is Miss Universe!!! I have cut everything from blackberry vines to branches 3+ inches in diameter. This knife backs away from nothing! It came reasonably sharp. Sharpened it once & it is still that way. Title (above) says it all... On a money spent per utility value, no other knife I know of, from ANY maker even comes close. ONE PRO NOT ON THE LIST - PRICE!!!
