Cold Steel 13D Tai Pan Dagger Fixed 7-1/2" San Mai III Blade, Kray-Ex Handle, Leather Sheath
CS13D: 13D 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° 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 Kray-Ex™ 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 300 series stainless steel, the traditional style tsuba and bolster offer both added safety and beauty. The Tai Pan’s® butt terminates in a tapered, semi-pointed pommel to maximize the effect of even the slightest blow.
