The Magnum Tanto IX features a deep lustrous Satin Finish on the hollow ground blade bevels and a contrasting line grain finish on the blade flats. This technique highlights Cold Steels’ state of the art grinding methods and emphasizes the Cold Steel Tanto’s unique appearance.
In addition, the Tanto comes with Cold Steels’ 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.
The Cold Steel’s Tanto Series Knives come with a thick, high quality black Leather Belt Sheath that is sure to give years of hard service and keep your Tanto at your side, ready for action.
