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. Please don’t throw away hundreds and hundreds of dollars on similar knives sold by convicted felons and rip off artists posing as elite "military operators". Get the real G.I. Tanto from Cold Steel and get more than your money’s worth.

A Soldiers Review of Cold Steel 80PGTK GI TANTO FIXED 7"
This product comes out of the box " Mission Ready". The tip is fully protected with a neat protective device. The sheath is ready to tie down on your vest or just stick it on your u-til belt. I am a retired Federal Agent, former soldier and, use to putting my butt deep in harms way. My specialty is to protect american personal and or highly sensitive cargo. My use for this product is to stay alive in emergency situations when guns won't be used or I have run out of bullets. To be blunt the knife for me is used to cut my way out of deadly situations use your imagination men. For example; insertion without detection, take out enemy personal without detection, and various utility options. Things that are great about this weapon are; it is a heavy duty blade with the ability to cut through bone without bending, make deep cuts when slashing, open the wound once your in with maximum destruction of organs, maintain its razor sharp blade, slides out of sheath very easy, totally dark- no shinny parts to give you away. If you are looking for a combat knife with a blade built to; devastate the enemy, handle utility needs, thats easy to carry, can be tethered any where you wish on your body, belt or vest, and comes ready to raise hell right out of the box or just go fishing with your son this is it. I was very surprised at the quality, craftsmanship, and ability of this knife for the money. I give this blade a 5 star EXCELLENT rating and I intend to use this knife on my next mission. For the price everyone should have this blade in their inventory of ready weapons. In fact, 2 as I am ordering a second one to keep hidden on my person inside my uniform as a last resort. How about you, ready to try one?

feels good
Don't care for the handle , seems tuff and all but also is a bit slick for my hand . Maybe I have dry hands but not sure but how its gonna do after handling a wet limb then hacking with it , time will tell ,,,, don't care for seeing the word on the blade , thought it was US made. Fits nice in sheath , sheath very adjustable , I`m left handed so always nice to be able to switch them over. A drop of red loc-tite on the screws of the sheath may be good to do also. Don't like giving review before real testing but just don't think handle is going to have a grip to it .
