It's been observed that fashion is fleeting. What's in style now will soon be out of style. The knife industry, like any other, is subject to the same winds of political correctness and notions of popular taste. At Cold Steel, they try to stay abreast of the currents of changes, but they also recognize that good design never goes out of style. The Cold Steel Tantos, Trail Master, and Voyagers illustrate this point very well.

The new Cold Steel Counter TAC boot knives were designed with this simple philosophy in mind. The full tang blades are made from stonewashed Japanese AUS-8A Stainless steel that's vacuum heat treated, and sub zero quenched for strength. They are hollow ground and end in a sturdy but needle sharp point that's ideal for effortless penetration, and of course the edge is razor sharp.

The ergonomic design of the Kraton grip is comfortable and adaptable to any fighting style, and the deeply textured surface and double guard will insure that the knife is not likely to slip from your hand under any circumstances.

Finally, each Counter TAC is shipped with a state of the art Secure-Ex sheath, complete with a removable boot/belt clip and lashing slots so you can carry or conceal it just about anywhere.

Note: If you opt to purchase the optional leather sheath then you will receive a total of two sheaths (the stock Secure-Ex sheath and the leather sheath). If you purchase without the option then you will only receive the Secure-Ex sheath.

Very sharp. Nice symmetrical grinds.a must, especially for daggers. Thick Japanese yari style blade, (flat on ground on one side) might not appeal to some. Steel is not the best by today's standards but adequate. The guard however is Kraton rubber same as the handle, a bit soft and flexible, ends might rip off from hard use and time. One of the best looking boot knives around. IMO

The Cold Steel Counter Tac 1 is extremely durable and light weight! Sharp as a razor right out of the box, the Counter Tac 1 comes complete with a Secure X sheath that is as versatile as the blade itself! The sheath an be mounted vertically or horizontally; onto MOLLE, or lashed onto gear by 550 cord. The handle fits well into my hand with a non-slip surface maintaining a sure and steadfast grip! This COLD STEEL Counter TAC 1 is well worth the price tag. WELL DONE COLD STEEL! ANOTHER GREAT KNIFE!

I bought this knife because I wanted a reasonably small edc fixed blade. The knife is just large enough to be comfortable in the hand while being small enough to conceal. Very grippy handle. Fairly sharp edges, but the tip is extremely pointy and sharp. The sheath is okay, doesn't lock in as tightly as I thought but it's still very secure. I have lashed some paracord to the holes in the sheath enabling horizontal (belt) carry. The clip that comes on the sheath is vertical only. All in all a good value for the money.

This is a nasty little blade. With the included clip Ive turned it for horizontal carry in my front. Not one person has noticed and I highly doubt anyone will. Also, the blade is chisel ground. Wounds of that triangular nature are difficult to seal up and are just overall very unpleasant. I would recommend.

Great knife, I have the small version and loved it so much I got this one. The stone washed blade isn't quite as pretty as the highly polished one, but for the price you can't beat it.

Excellent knife. Very strong metal. The handle makes for a great grip.

Cold Steel makes a great little knife, Definitely a great little defense tool. the sheath holds the knife very securely and comes with a long chain to wear around the neck if so desired. Great buy.
