13Q: Tai Pan Dagger (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 13Q Tai Pan. Like its serpent namesake, the Tai Pan is aggressively fast and deadly. Designed by Lynn C. Thompson in the distinctive Tanto style, the Tai Pan embodies all the best features of a classic dagger while minimizing its shortcomings.

Most daggers are notorious for having thin, fragile points that are easily broken. In contrast, the Tai Pan features a sturdy spear point which is wide and thick enough to resist breaking without compromising its ability to offer deep, effortless penetration.

The razor sharp twin edges offer twice the potential cuts, slashes, and locks of a single edge knife. When used with skill, the Tai Pan can cut a 180 degree arc up or down or from side to side with devastating effect. With a balance point just behind the guard, the Tai Pan has subtle handle heavy feel making it ideal for insertions yet remaining lively in the hand.

As with the Tanto, the Tai Pan features a tapered black Kraton handle with a unique flattened oval cross section. Over time, this material and handle shape have proven ideal for preventing the knife from shifting or turning in the hand even under the worst circumstances.

Meticulously fashioned from CPM 3-V high performance powdered steel, the traditional style tsuba and bolster offer both added safety and beauty. The Tai Pans butt terminates in a tapered, semi-pointed pommel to maximize the effect of even the slightest blow.

Arguable, the best production dagger out there. Penetrates like an ice pick and cuts like a razor. Materials and execution are first rate.
