CS49HBF: Mini Tac Beaver Tail
Cold Steel
 
MINI TAC SERIES

Cold Steel's new generation of Mini Tac Neck Knives are astonishingly light at 3 ounces each. Because they're so lightweight, they can be comfortably worn practically 24 hours a day. With their sturdy bead chain lanyards and their rugged Secure Ex® sheaths (specially designed to snugly retain the knife while allowing a speedy draw stroke), they can be worn outside clothing and perform as a handy utility or rescue knife. They can also be carried more discreetly under a shirt or blouse, or inside a coat. They can even be used for camping or hiking as they can easily be tied or taped anywhere from a backpack to a fanny pack. Their versatility is virtually endless. Fashioned from AUS 8A stainless steel and reflecting state of the art heat treatment they are honed to a razor edge and exhibit incredible toughness for such a small knife, due in part to their full tang construction. Tough, rough, and ready for anything, they come equipped with thin high quality black Faux G-10 handle scales. This feature allows them to lie flat and close against the body and provide an aggressive gripping surface. Also when these scales are combined with integral sub hilt they give the fingers of the hand incredible purchase and allow a remarkably secure grip that resists rolling or twisting.

BEAVER TAIL:
Offers a super wide blade with a long shallow "V" cross section that's ideal for cutting and shearing or piercing. It makes a great all around field knife too and will prove equally useful outdoors at camp or at home in the kitchen.

SKINNER:
Provides a long, curved cutting edge with a sharp point. It's ideal for cutting slashing and skinning strokes. It's been extensively fieldtested in Australia where it single handedly caped a huge buffalo slicing through neck skin over 1" thick!

KIRIDASHI:
This blade shape is derived from the traditional Japanese pocket or utility knife. It can be used for whittling, carving, paring or virtually any chore you can think of. It offers a very acute point for all those hard to reach jobs.

TANTO:
For a knife this size, our Mini Tac™ Tanto offers a remarkably wide, stiff blade and a very sturdy reinforced point, making it ideal for piercing even tough, hard objects. As an added bonus, its wide blade allows for a very generously sized hollow ground blade bevel and an extra keen edge so it can cut almost as well as it pierces.

Light and usefull
I use this knife for all kinds of stuff have it setting on my coffee table to open letters, snacks, sharpen pencils ect it's crazy sharp out of the box as are all cold steel knives when I go out at night I use it for its Intended purpose around the neck under my shirt Lays pretty well ,retention in the sheath is perfect fells a little awkward in the hand at first but u get use to it plan on talking it in my backpack because it so light and sharp and oh yeah the best way to resharpen this blade is a ceramic crook stick just a few strokes and it back to that spooky sharp edge. For the money u can't go wrong with this blade.

Pros: Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material
Cons: None
Unexpected bonus
I bought this because it was a great price for a Cold Steel. However; I hate neck sheaths. I put it in my Carhartt right inner leg POCKET(standard on many dungarees and overalls). I pulled it out fast by the handle and the hump on top of the sheath hooked on the inside of the pocket and the knife came out by itself. I tried it repeatedly and it did the same. I now have a really fast draw knife as long as I wear those style of Carhartt. I don't think it would work with other Mini-Tacs because the hump isn't as big; but it could be tried.
