80NT: Chaos Tanto Trench Knife
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.

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.
It's easy to write, when all you do is tell the truth. I personally do not believe you have any competition. Your attention to detail, superb staff, extraordinary products, phenomenal service, and outstanding prices ensure that. The professionalism that you all exhibit is the benchmark all others will have to try and measure up to... Perhaps not impossible, but daunting to say the least. In having you as an "aiming point," the industry will have to improve, if it wants to even approach you, and your company... The end result will be better for everyone. Please keep-up the great work.
