CS10BC: Counter Tac I
Cold Steel

It’s been observed that fashion is fleeting. What’s "in" 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, we try to stay abreast of the currents of change, but we also recognize that good design never goes out of style. The Cold Steel Tantos, Trail Master, and Voyagers illustrate this point very well.

Our Counter TAC™ boot knives were designed with this simple philosophy in mind. The full tang blades are made from beautifully polished 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.

Good backup weapon
Short review: +Blade is very pointed and pretty sharp from factory +Steel is fine for a knife of this purpose and blade is durable for a dagger +Good sheath with multiple carry options +Handle is grippy and well shaped for thrusting +Light -5mm thick chisel grind is not very good at cutting -You have to take the knife out of the sheath straight or it can dull your edges -Only useful as a weapon

boot knife?
As all of cold steel products are, this is a nice, well made knife encased in a nice sheath. But I find this knife is quite uncomfortable to use as a boot knife because of the overall blade length and the amount of room the sheath takes up inside your boot. If you are looking for a true boot knife, I would recommend the shorter blade lenght. (this knife goes from the top of my logger boots down past my ankle, not comfortable)

The real deal!
Counter tac is the knife that you want to have with you when its gonna be a matter of life and death. the point is like needle, the sharpness is almost like razor, thick blade and the grip even if you have oil in your hands its doesn't slips. the sheath is excellent, slim with a clip that can change its position up and down. if the blade was coming in black color it would be more operational. I bet that i can stab a zombie with it twist the knife on its body and after repeat again the procedure to another zombie with no problem! Not for throwing, not for cutting ropes!
