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.
