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 inch 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.

I keep this knife in my Rubicon for protection and emergencies. In the event of an accident the pommel will break glass and the blade will cut just about anything I need it to cut, including seatbelts. The knife is a very strong, well-made knife and an extremely useful tool but that is what I expect from Cold Steel. For the price you can't go wrong.

I have always been very particular about my knives and I have owned several Cold Steel products in the past. None of which has ever failed to impress me. This knife is no exception.

While this knife is nowhere close in fit and finish to say, my Model 14 Randall, it is a very rugged, well made, and affordable knife that nearly anyone can afford to carry without worrying about losing it, having it stolen, or damaging it. The latter of which I cannot image you will be able to do short of using this knife as a target for your trusty .338 Lapua magnum.

THIS IS A FULL TANG KNIFE and the blade runs the full length of the handle from the quillions to the pummel.

The Cold Steel Chaos comes in two models, the Chaos 80NT which has a single edged Tanto blade, and the Chaos 80NTP which has double edged spear tip blade. This is a review of the double edged Chaos 80NTP. However both models include the same Secure Ex sheath and both knife also have a 7.5 inch, SK-5 High Carbon, full tang blade that extends the entire length of the knife.

The Cold Steel 80NTP Chaos has a high quality, thick, thick full tang, 7.5 inch spear point blade made of Cold Steel's SK-5 High Carbon steel. It is sharpened at approximately a 20 degree angle and the blade is exceedingly sharp right out of the box. However if, like me, you should decide to put it to the stone anyway , you will find that the blade quickly takes a razor sharp hone that you will easily be able to shave with. The blade is coated with Cold Steel's preparatory, black, Tuff-Ex coating that reduces friction and which the manufacturer claims reduces the effort needed for cutting and stabbing.

The Chaos has a very heavy, 6" "knuckle duster" handle which is made of 6061 Aluminum. Two allen screws pass through the tang and handle firmly attaching it to the blade. The back of the handle has a very usable, tapered, "skull crusher" pommel which is made of 1055 carbon steel and which is a weapon in its own respect.

The Chaos comes with a Secure Ex sheath which I have some mixed emotions about. The sheath has a nylon belt loop that is large enough to fit over a military cartridge belt (just barely) and the outside edge of the sheath contains 12 different attachment points (4 one and a half inch slots and 8 quarter inch 550 cord size holes). One of the features that I really like about this sheath is that the belt loop attachment has a snap that allows you to put the sheath onto your belt without having to take your belt off. If you have ever had to remove all your gear and your belt just to put on a sheath or holster you already know what a pain in the ass that is.

For the average user this sheath is more than just fine. However, if you are active duty, going into a combat zone, or plan on carrying this knife inverted on a chest harness or on your Mole gear, there are a few things that you might consider a bit negative. The first being, since this sheath is made of a hard plastic material, it is very loud makes a huge amount of noise if it bangs against any other gear. This of course can be corrected with a bit of electrical tape and properly checking your gear in advance.

However more importantly, even though at first glance this sheath appears ambidextrous, in actuality it is not. If you wear this sheath upside down, on say an H harness, and you put the knife into the sheath with the handle facing in the wrong direction, without also using he secondary nylon strap to secure the knife, the knife will click into place making you think it is secure BUT with even a small bit of physical activity it will fall out of the sheath and it will either become lost or, even worse, cause you serious bodily harm. If I were going on another deployment to a combat zone and my life was going to depend on this knife, I believe I would invest in a good leather sheath rather than use the Secure Ex sheath that comes with the Chaos.

Anyway, except for a couple of very minor shortcomings with the sheath this is one completely outstanding, and affordable knife. If you are looking for a replica of a 1917 trench knife this is not your knife. However, if you are looking for a high quality, and rugged modern update of a combat ready knuckle knife, this knife will do the job and also last you a lifetime.

In my honest opinion you simply can not go wrong with the Cold Steel 80NTP Chaos.

Guard is extremely comfortable and basically makes this brass knuckles.
Isaiah D. on 09/24/2021 11:58am
This is the ultimate fighting knife! Totally Badass! Mine came razor sharp out of the box. The fit and finish is flawless. The plastic sheath is very high quality, with no looseness, rattles or play. The price cannot be beat. I have seen this knife selling at other shops for $100.00. Dont hesitate! Buy yours today! I am sure you will not be disappointed!

I own 2 of these bad boys, very high quality blades.
Jessica on 01/23/2017 07:39am
Gift for husband. He loves the material its made out of and the durability. Good tight comfortable grip. Great case. Extremely sharp! Definitely a beast!

First off if you would never consider buying a knife made in Taiwan you may stop reading now.
The Cold Steel Chaos is a combat knife made along the lines as the old WWI and WWII treach knives. Like most Cold Steel knives this knife is all business, all the way from the 6060 aluminum D guard to the 1055 carbon steel pommel. I have the SK-5 high carbon steel double edged blade; you can also get it in a tanto blade if you like. For me more cutting edges more possibilities in a combat setting.
If you are like me blade steels can be very confusing so what is SK-5 and is it any good?
The SK-5 high carbon steel blade is of the highest quality for making blades. It is the Japanese equivalent to American 1080. SK-5 high carbon steel gives a knife the ability to cut through practically anything and hold an edge while doing it. Also the chaos comes with a coated black Tuff-Ex blade that helps with corrosion, and reducing friction for a while, it comes off with use so keep the blade coated with a light coat of oil. Comes with a Secure-Ex sheath which gives the user many options for deployment.
So do I like it; sure for what it is, a straight up hand to hand combat trench knife, it will do the job well. Problems; it is large and heavy 17 oz. and it is pretty much a one trick pony, but hey I did not buy it for an all-purpose field tool I brought it for what it is... a BAD ASS 21st century trench knife, and one last thing try to beat the price for what you get, good luck with that.

Fantastic Knife! Thanks Cold Steel for building such a quality weapon. Thanks to Oso Grande for selling these knives at such fair prices.
Ralph S. on 07/27/2016 04:36pm
Arguably the best production combat dagger in this price range!
Jason on 05/04/2016 09:44am
Exactly what was pictured. Great product!
JOHN C. on 12/23/2015 03:22pm
THIS IS A BEAST OF A WEAPON, YES I SAID WEAPON, BECAUSE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT IS! IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT THIS KNIFE YOU CHOSE TO FOR ONLY A FEW REASONS LIKE I DID. THE REASONS: TO FIND THE BEST/BADDEST SELF-DEFENSE WEAPON (WHICH IT IS) AND/OR HUNTING/SURVIVAL (YES,IT DOES WORK GOOD AS A SURVIVAL/FIELD KNIFE TOO) OR BECAUSE YOU HEARD ABOUT IT, HAD TO HAVE IT AND ADD IT TO YOUR COLLECTION, OR LASTLY YOU WANTED A COOL WALL-HANGER TO SHOW OFF. FOR WHATEVER REASON THAT I STATED,THIS IS ALL IT LOOKS TO BE AND THEN SOME! I LOVE THIS SUCKER AND I HAVE PLAYED WITH IT FOR A MONTH NOW AND IT IS FRICKIN SCARY BAD A$$! I HAVE STABBED/SMASHED WOOD, CARDBOARD, BOTTLES, HEAVYBAGS, YOU NAME IT, AND ALSO SKINNED SOME GAME WITH IT, IT DID EVERYTHING GREAT AND THEN SOME! THIS IS A GAME-CHANGER KNIFE, THAT'S IT THAT'S ALL! IF YOU HAD ANY DOUBTS, I HOPE I CHANGED YOUR MIND, THIS CS MODEL IS WORTH THE MONEY PERIOD! BTW,THE TANTO AND KUKRI VERSIONS ARE NOT BAD, BUT THE DAGGER IS BY FAR THE ALL-AROUND MVP OF THE CHAOS SERIES! :)

Just to say it is Cold Steel, it means it is a good product, they have been for years and everytime that you use it , it is always sharp. Best knives. I experience a great customer service from this site, I have come three times and always is the same service, great!
Eldon Watts on 09/24/2015 06:33am
This is the real deal folks, not a junky wannabe. This baby will make you feel invincible, feels great in your hand. Light but substantial and expertly crafted. Rigid and well-built, it is worth every penny!
rightsman123 on 04/10/2015 05:57am
I have both these and the chaos is great for the cost. I have the double edge chaos too and both are a lot more agile and less bulky than they appear. I really hope they add a bowie to this great line up.
M davis on 02/28/2015 05:49pm
It came Very very razor sharp!.Good weight and feels very comfortable in my hand. I'm confident it will do everything the video portrays! This thing is very intimidating looking and will impede and/or eliminate the threat if self defense is required
Aaron Porter on 12/22/2014 01:22pm
Great Knife! Very solid. The only caution I would give is that the knife makes you feel a lot more powerful than you are. Awesome knife.
Stuart on 11/24/2014 02:05am
Thinking about buying it, hook up a 25 dollar gift card and its sold.
C. Denton on 08/10/2014 03:11pm
Excellent knife durable, sharp out of the box, feels great in my hand, looks cool also, definitely a combat knife.
Rex B. on 04/06/2014 10:58am
I love this knife! It is excellent quality, a super design and great craftsmanship. If you're looking for a trench knife that's battle ready this is the Knife if you want.
Stomper on 03/18/2014 10:32am
As always, Cold Steel produced a solid product. Good blade, very sharp and, as far as I can tell, very strong. I have purchased many Cold Steel products and so far I haven't been disappointed.
Chance Cochran on 10/23/2013 07:57am
It came razor sharp.
Very solid feeling knife.and handle.
The sheath is of very high quality.
I highly recommend this product.
Beretta Man on 08/14/2013 04:51pm
This knife is awesome! I waited six months for it to be released and it was worth the wait. Super sharp, super rugged and the knuckle guard is so sturd I think you could punch your way thru a cement block wall. I first purchased the dagger version then 2 spear point models, Cold Steel knives are by far the best buy for the money! I own several dozen knives made by Cold Steel and by far the toughest & coolest knives for the money. Enjoy
