CS13QMBXII: 13QMBXII Magnum Tanto XII Fixed Blade (CPM3V Black DLC Coated Blade)
Cold Steel Knives

The classic San Mai III fixed blades have been a Cold Steel staple for decades. Coveted by Martial Artists and knife collectors alike, they are much in demand, but these high-end luxury fixed blades are only produced in exclusive limited edition runs each year.

Therefore, Cold Steel is proud to introduce their new Nightfall Series of Japanese styled blades made from American CPM 3-V high performance powdered steel - with the same design and attention to detail as their much loved San Mai classics but with the addition of this premium American super steel, Cold Steel is excited to usher in a new era of high performance fixed blades for the discerning knife owner.

Each of these tough, reliable blades is DLC (diamond like) coated to a rich inky black finish. Highly scratch and wear resistant, and honed to an edge that you would expect on the keenest of razor blades, they are not only super sharp, but built to last!

Cold Steel 13QMBII Magnum Tanto II, CPM 3V High Carbon with DLC. There isn't a person working in the knife industry today that knows more about the Tanto than Cold Steel does. It was, after all, Cold Steel who invented and popularized this knife style in the early 1980's. We have spent well over a million dollars persuading the public, both through advertising and live or videotaped demonstrations, of the Tanto's many advantages. We have been producing Tanto's for more than 35 years now, and there is still no factory or custom knife maker around making a Tanto that can approach the cutting, slashing or piercing power of one that is manufactured by Cold Steel.

All of our Tantos feature hollow ground blade bevels. In addition, the Tantos come with our famous flattened oval Kraton handle. The oval shape provides a solid grip and resists rolling or twisting in the hand under hard use, the kind that, over time, would destroy a lesser knife. The use of Kraton in knife handles is another Cold Steel innovation. Kraton is an unparalleled space age material that won't crack or rot and is immune to the ravages of bad weather.

The tapered, solid steel pommel is another important Tanto feature that should not be ignored. Lynn Thompson designed it to concentrate the full force of a crushing blow in a small area so that even a moderately powerful blow can be remarkably effective in disarming or otherwise incapacitating an attacker.

Very high quality knife. Light weight for its size, and very well balanced. Razor sharp. The sheath allows for inverse carry on a shoulder rig or sling as well as many other carry options. This is a practical, better than military grade long blade.

This is the best balanced knife I have ever held. Removing it from the sheath was extremely difficult (I actually had to pry it open the first time). After about 20-30 draws it was easy but. believe me you want it to be a tight fit because it is so much safer to carry when trekking. The Blade steel is awesome (twice as tuff as D2) but it is not stainless steel and that is why it has the DLC coating. I wipe mine down with Tufcloth/Tufglide to keep it protected. The knife is extremely sharp, with an excellent grind. The overall quality of the knife is superb.

What can I say. This knife is awesome. Razor sharp, super steel, excellent balance, comfortable--easy to manuever handle and nice sheath. If you love tantos and Cold Steel then you will love this knife.

Oso Grande was insanely fast with their customer service responses AND notified me that the shipping price was changing rather than just charging me. They gave me the option to decide how to handle it. No one does that anymore! And it was a person, not an automated system. Best. Ever.
