As its name suggests, the 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.

The Cold Steel GI Tanto features a 7" tanto blade made of 1055 carbon steel, 4mm thick, with a non reflective black rust resistant finish. The GI Tanto has full tang construction with integral quillion guard and polypropylene handle scales for secure grip. A heavy duty black Secure-Ex sheath is included.

I have 3 of these. 1 in each of my vehicles. This thing is a beast. Would be 6 stars if it have the rubber grips as the Recon Tanto. Buy it.

One of the best in class full size economy knives. The secure-ex sheath can be lashed to a pack, an armored vest carrier or anything else. High carbon, impact resistant 1055, non-stainless steel is used here. Wipe the blade after use and a little oil on the sharp edge for storage. Perfect for finishing mods and personalization. I ground the spine flat to use a ferro rod fire starter and ground one of the quillon/cross guard tangs off for better grip. Good looking, striking profile tanto blade. Survival, camping, bushcraft uses are what this is made for. You can throw it if you know what you are doing. Throwing knives is a skill and sport that requires practice. These are perfect for gifts, the tanto blade is impressive and strong. Buy two and give one to a friend.

Great knife for the price. Super sharp! Sheath holds knife very tight.

This knife is stout, beefy and holds a decent edge. The sheath has held up well to hard abuse. This knife is a good tool to keep at hand, for whatever reason. it's a bargain for the price.

Incredible value. Owning this knife for this kind of money is a no brainer.

I bought the Cold Steel GI Tanto to use while camping. It batons wood better than any knife I have. The Secure-Ex sheath is great. One caution is the blade WILL rust, so keep coated with light film of oil. It came VERY sharp out of box. Almost unbreakable. Highly recommend!

I was very impressed with the quality and value of this knife. The steel is of excellent quality, and the ergonomics of the knife are also very good. It's not the best knife I've ever owned/handled, but it is definitely the best value. You simply can't beat the value of the product for just over 20 bucks, especially as it includes a decent sheath that's easy to attach to about anything.

I have to say that despite trepidations of ordering online, my transaction with Oso Grande was absolutely flawless. I emailed Oso Grande about a knife availability and promptly got a response within hours. I proceeded to call and place my order over the phone. A follow up "thank you" email and tracking email was sent to me straight away and the knife, a Spyderco Delica 4 Titanium/Damascus showed up perfectly. Overall, I would be happy to recommend and order from Oso Grande again.
